Introduced by Robert Robinson First Novel
In most publishing houses the desks of readers and editors are constantly piled high with the manuscripts of aspiring first novelists. Precious few find their way into hard covers.
Sleight of Heart is M. T. Wadey 's first published novel. It's the story of three childhood friends confronting each other for the first time as adults. The processing of this novel, from the original idea to the bookshops, is told on film: telling the story are the author herself, the literary agent, the publisher's editor, the sales representative and the bookseller.

Seven films in which David Attenborough relates masterpieces of the world's tribal art to the people and places that produced them.
The Dogon people of Mali live in harsh isolation 100 miles south of Timbuktu. Their home is dominated by awe-inspiring cliffs which slice across the desert and provide for the Dogon a precarious refuge - where carved wooden statues are regularly nourished with fresh blood and millet gruel to ensure the preservation of life.
Because this remote Dogon world still holds much of the mystery and magic of ancient Africa it is one of the last places left on earth where one can see not only how carvings are created but why they are created and what part they play in ritual life.
Tonight we descend the Dogon's cliff and enter the sanctuaries of the Dogon priests. And we seek to cross the barrier that so often conceals the meaning of tribal art from the sophisticated European eye.
