One year in Heddington, Wiltshire. A documentary serial in eight parts. 1: A Scattered Village, a Mucky Village
November 1975, and the lanes are splattered with mud - and worse. Should the farmers clean up the mess their cows are making? The Parish Council is divided. There's another problem: the church roof will collapse unless it's repaired. The only way of raising £10,000 in a hurry is to sell its heirloom-the Elizabethan flagon. To crown all, Mother Goose, Heddington's panto, runs into a disaster on the very eve of the First Night.

A famous composer, Gustav von Aschenbach, comes to Venice Lido weary and dispirited, for a holiday. Among the hotel guests he sees a boy who seems to embody the beauty, grace and harmony he has been seeking all his life. When a cholera epidemic strikes the city, von Aschenbach doggedly stays on, unable to leave while the boy remains.
Based on the novel Death in Venice by THOMAS MANN
