A series about some of the best-known images in art
Turner called this painting his 'darling'. It was a huge success in his own lifetime, even with those critics who jeered at his ideas and called him a madman. Today it remains our best-loved picture from the days of the sailing ship.
Bill Thomson looks at Turner's masterpiece from the point of view of a painter, and visits the Thames-side cottage where the artist worked on it.
The people, the stories, and the action behind the one commodity no one can do without-money.
Together with the Money-Minder -a new regular feature with the latest news on the Stock Market
A Place where nothing happens but it happens all the time.
Elma Williams came to Pantglas in North Cardiganshire to write romantic novels but, she says, the animals here have taken her over and her life is now theirs. They farm the valley, she claims, run their own society and attend their own chapel.
It is not the local farmers' idea of Paradise but, for Elma Williams, Heaven is on her doorstep.

The second of three films by Orson Welles in this new season featuring the work of the world's leading directors
Starring Joseph Cotten, Agnes Moorehead
with Anne Baxter, Dolores Costello
Welles's second feature has the same arrogance, self-confidence, and technical originality as Citizen Kane. Although the story about an insufferable young aristocrat who refuses to allow his decadent family to break with tradition is pure Hollywood, Welles invests it with a feeling of contemporary importance and wrings remarkable performances from its stars.
