10: The Laughing Cavalier by Frans Hals (Wallace Collection, London)
For years he hung in countless homes all over the country, the symbol of gallant, rakish manhood. The English claimed him as their own, and here at least he became as much a star as the Mona Lisa herself. Now, after years of relegation to chocolate-box tops and advertisements, he seems little more than a representative of bygone bad taste.
Michael Kitson traces the Cavalier's rise to fame, in relation to Hals's work as a whole. Does he perhaps, deserve a little more respect than we now allow him?
Money - the force behind so many of our actions : loving and hating, hiring and firing, living and starving, or just piling it up. 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 up-to-the-minute news on the Stock Market: the rise and fall of shares, the bulls and the bears. What is it all about?
A weekly look at the investment world.

The Chilterns are 500 square miles of beautiful countryside, only about one hour's drive from London.
Kevin Fitzgerald looks beneath the thatch of the pretty cottages, the uniform roofs of the housing estates, and sees the countryside as a place for the benefit of people who live there.
In the last two decades more than a million people have come to live in the Chilterns. How has the area absorbed them, and how many more can it absorb before the countryside that they have all moved away from London to enjoy, is destroyed by their own enthusiasm for it?

The last of the three films by Orson Welles in this new season featuring the work of the world's leading directors starring
Rita Hayworth , Orson Welles with Everett Sloane
Although Citizen Kane and The Magnificent Ambersons received phenomenal critical acclaim, Welles found it difficult to get directorial assignments, and only after Rita Hayworth -his wife at the time - had agreed to play a leading role was he given full creative control over The Lady from Shanghai. The result was a bravura thriller with one of the most exciting endings in the history of the cinema - a bizarre gun battle in a hall of mirrors.
Based on a novel by SHERWOOD KING Written, produced, and directed by ORSON WELLES
