' The rich man in his castle and the poor man at his gate' was how it used to be on the old country estates, and there are still a few people who remember what it was like.

The. Great Stars: the second of three films starring the 'King' of Hollywood with Ava Gardner, Grace Kelly
Jungle adventure at its most exciting and one of the King's greatest post-war successes, Mogambo also gains from the lively handling of veteran director John Ford. Gable plays Vic Marswell, a white hunter whose business is handling wild animals. On this expedition he finds himself snared by two new types - Ava Gardner as a stranded show-girl and Grace Kelly as the cool, beautiful young wife of a British anthropologist.

The Royal Choral Society who also celebrate their centenary this year
One hundred years ago a dream became a reality - born out of the profits of the 1851 Exhibition - inspired by the memory of the Prince Consort - realised in iron and stone and terra-cotta, The Royal Albert Hall of Arts and Sciences
The centre of an expanding, optimistic Victorian universe. Here under one roof would be a meeting place for all the skills - music, painting and (for where had the money come from?) the manufacturing industries as well.
With such lofty and worthy ambitions the hall was doomed to success. This programme, recorded at the Royal Albert Hall, recounts the personalities and events that have led to that success.
