Meat and Drink Sufficient ...
The surface of every physical system is very different from its insides and is directly concerned with its environment. By examining large and small animals, a horse and a mouse, we discover that Gulliver was in error-he never could have eaten the food of 1728 Lilliputians.

A dangerous, troubled frontier-where cross words soon lead to crossed swords and a brawl can start a war. This is the explosive situation on the Anglo-Scottish border in the 1560s, when men like Ker of Cessford, Warden of the Scottish Middle March, struggle to keep order over a hot-headed people owing more allegiance to their surn.ames than to the Crown. Peace-loving families depend for their livelihood on their cattle and for their defence on their solid stone castles. Gavin Ker of Slitrig, eldest son of such a family, seeks a wider world .... but a shattering experience lies in wait for him.

A BBC-tv Talent Associates production
A moving, funny, and wholly delightful re-creation in which the character of the garrulous old man manages to transcend 400 years of history
Amusing, touching, convincingly real, and quite unforgettable
I don'think I took my eyes off the screen for the whole 85 minutes
These are some of the things that were said after the first showing of Brief Lives. Roy Dotrice , who plays John Aubrey , is the only actor, and throughout the performance he never leaves the set.
as John Aubrey:
A brilliant award-winning film pointing out the way the creative process differs from ordinary experience ... and in what ways it is very much like it.
Written and directed by Saul Bass
For the Kaiser Aluminum and Chemical Corporation
In this cartoon Hollywood art director Saul Bass , whose title sequence for Around the World in Eighty Days has become a classic, wrote, directed, and animated a film which says more about man's creative process in twenty-five minutes than many a heavyweight production in twice that time.
