10: The Story of Christopher Columbus
who discovered the New World in 1492 Written by JESSE LASKY JR and PAT SILVER Introduced by David Attenborough from the Royal Geographical Society, London
Incredibly, Columbus refused to accept that he had found a new continent. He had set out on his first voyage in the Santa Maria to search for the spices and gold of the Orient. When he reached the shores of the New World he was convinced he had discovered a new route to China. And he carried that belief to his grave.
Today's film tells the little-known story of what really happened to Columbus and his men. From the Royal Court of Spain to the slave camps of the New World, it traces the dramatic decline of a man who made a momentous discovery - but would not accept it.
One of the best films to end a superior series. (DAILY EXPRESS) A fascinating and powerful film.

An only child, deliciously apart
Misunderstood and not like other boys....
Sir John Betjeman described himself thus in his verse autobiography. In this film, based on the book and produced to celebrate the Poet Laureate's 70th birthday, BETJEMAN revisits the places he knew as a child.
Highgate, Oxford, old books and churches, boarding school, the dread of games, holidays in Cornwall, poetry and trains - so the story unfolds, a unique and touching account of an Edwardian middle-class childhood.
