"I just happen to like to make people laugh, and I think if I wasn't in film animation I'd probably be playing the pier."
Bob Godfrey is a craftsman in film who teaches animation to students at the Guildford College of Art. But draughtsmanship is not the only skill to be mastered - "you have to be a bit of a photographer, a mathematician, a psychologist, a remote-control exhibitionist, a storyteller, a comedian, an instructor." His drawings become trick films and cartoons. The latest of these, Henry 9 'til 5 has won several awards at film festivals all over the world.

The people, the stories, and the action behind the one commodity no one can do without - money. Together with the Money-Minder - a regular feature with up-to-the-minute news of the Stock Market.
John Webb, 32, is a professional treasure hunter, using a beat frequency detector whose 'note' changes when it passes over metal, Roman coins, silver paper, shrapnel and dustbin lids.
His first clues to hoards, lost treasure, highwayman's booty, come from old books. What drives him on is the big find - like Mildenhall and Sutton Hoo.
starring Dave Allen
With Jacqueline Clarke, Ronnie Brody, Ian Burford, Michael Sharvell-Martin and Chris Serle
maintains Dr John Howells, Director of the Institute of Family Psychiatry in Ipswich. What really matters to him in the 1970s is that psychiatric treatment should be pointed in a new direction at the family mind rather than the individual mind.
The last of three films directed by Alain Resnais
Starring Delphine Seyrig with Jean-Pierre Kerien, Jean-Baptiste Thierree, Nita Klein
After the symbolism of Hiroshima Mon Amour and the abstractions of L'Annee Dernier d a Marienbad, Resnais turns to the minutiae of everyday life and the power and fallibility of memory.
