Today: an affectionate parody of explorers and exploration films with Yemi Ajibade Mordel Jordine
Bloke Modisane , Horace Ove and Douglas Botting
For years there have been white expeditions to darkest Africa. Now there comes a black expedition to darkest Britain. In the footsteps of Stanley, in the tradition of The World About Us, and in a take-off of both, a black man's expedition now journeys along the Liverpool-Leeds canal to find the centre of Britain.
On the way the intrepid explorers do what travellers and television safaris always have: they examine the quaint customs of the natives, delve into their folklore and record for posterity an exotic but fast-vanishing culture. As they travel through England they are watched with curiosity by the natives, some of whom they find make very reluctant porters.

Julia Starling , at 21, has made herself into a successful business woman. But she has also made an ill-judged wartime marriage. In 1918 she faces the return of her husband from the war. Part 2
A series of seven films about aspects of their past made by seven European countries. 1: Siena
A Race with the Past
One of the great commercial centres of medieval Europe, the city of Siena in Tuscany appears almost unchanged today. Old traditions also continue, like the famous annual horse-race, the Festival of the Palio, held twice every summer on the main square, when the different districts of the city compete for the prize of a silk banner - called the Palio.
This film, made by Italian Television, captures the excitement of the Palio and relates it to everyday life in Siena then and now.
