In August 1987, Bill Wyman's Mobile - a 48-track recording studio housed in a truck - rolled into Norwich on the first stage of a gruelling five-month, five-city tour, recording the music of talented young bands. From 145 submitted tapes, ten bands from the eastern counties were given free use of professional equipment and skilled staff to record their own material, with the additional promise that one of them might be selected to perform with Wyman at the Albert Hall, London.
AIMS charts the course of those ten bands and makes a record of Bill Wyman's first AIMS project.

Throughout 1987, Top Gear followed the first year of Formula First, a cheap new racing car formula for the novice driver.
In the money-dominated world of racing, Formula
First set out to eliminate all differences except driver ability, to let the real talent shine through. One make of car, one type of tyre and no scope for engine tuning or suspension modification. Chris Goffey reports on the excitement of the year's racing and Tiff Needell assesses the car's performance.

Cinema of Satyajit Ray
'The really crucial moments in a film should be wordless, should be done through the camera. It's easy to use words, too easy ... what sticks in the mind is cinematic method. ' Satyajit Ray has been regarded as one of the masters of world cinema ever since his very first film Pather Panchali astounded the jury of the Cannes Film Festival in 1956. In India. however, his films are virtually unknown outside his home state of Bengal. After a career in which he has made more than 20 major films, Ray now lives in semi-retirement in Calcutta. From there he spoke to Omnibus about a distinguished life in cinema, as writer, director, composer, camera operator, and designer on his own powerful and compassionate films.
