Getting to Dylan
Since he first appeared in the late 50s, Bob Dylan has achieved a status far beyond that of a pop superstar.
His admirers regard him as a major contemporary poet: certainly he's one of the great singer/songwriters of the century. He has appeared in very few films and, in a new cinema release Hearts of Fire, which opens next month in London, he takes his first acting role for ten years. He plays a former rock idol,
Billy Parker , tempted out of retirement to play one last concert.
Dylan is known for his extreme reluctance to be filmed at work or to give interviews on camera.
Omnibus was given unique access to the set of Hearts of Fire and trailed its quarry from London to Toronto.
Eventually, Dylan agreed to talk on his own terms, and very much in his own way. Film recordists

A feature-length episode which begins a selection from the classic American series about gangland
Chicago and the fight waged against crime by Eliot Ness and his agents - honest, upright, untouchable. Starring with guest star
The Big Train
From an Atlanta penitentiary, Al Capone still exerts his evil influence.
Aware of the corruption in the prison system, Eliot Ness makes a radical proposal: to build a special institution on an island off
San Francisco - a place called Alcatraz.
