Little Nell is one of Dickens's most famous characters. Equally memorable is the odious misshapen money-lender Quilp, who harries Nell's old grandfather and plans to marry Nell when she is old enough. The tale of the desperate attempts of the luckless pair to escape Quilp's evil clutches is as exciting and moving as any that Dickens ever told.

The dying become like little children: dependent, vulnerable, in need of loving security. Too often nurses treat their terminal cases as failures, and isolate them in the hour of their need.
Everymanhas filmed in St
Joseph's Hospice, Hackney, where a very different approach to dying:
'It's not so much that you lose anything here, but bit by bit you have to give things back. You give back your sight. You give back your hearing. You give back your friends. Then one day you finish by giving back yourself.' Producer PETERBARBER

Six films about the cinema and public opinion in the 1930s.
5: ... witha SocialPurpose
Unlike the newsreels, whose problem was to strike a balance between entertainment and political purpose, the documentary films of the 1930s were concerned to balance the art of film for its own sake with a social purpose.
