Arena: Cinema

on BBC Two England

A fortnightly look at the big screen at home and abroad: news, views and interviews presented by Gavin Millar
It is one year since Franco's death, and Spanish film-makers are now beginning to test the new political atmosphere, heralded in 1973 by the extraordinary Spirit of the Beehive . Tonight the London Film
Festival sees the English premiere of the first Spanish film in 40 years actually to show the Republican flag from the Civil War - The Long Vacation of 36 - and Arena: Cinema went to Spain to watch its Madrid premiere and to film on location with several Spanish directors - BARDEM, SAURA, BORAU and CAMINO among them - and talk about the problems of a country where a bad review can still mean jail.
