The Challenge of the Ganga Narrated by PATRICK ALLEN
When Sir Edmund Hillary planned a jet-boat expedition up the River Ganges - for millions the sacred heart of India - he knew he would find danger in the white waters of the upper reaches and a challenge in the final climb to its source in the Himalayas; but as well he found warmth and enthusiasm in the people of India as they thronged the banks in their thousands to honour this traveller on his pilgrimage up the holy Ganga.

Myrtle Gordon is a beautiful, famous and wealthy actress. During rehearsals for her latest play she witnesses the accidental death of an adoring young fan. The event, combined with the traumas of rehearsal, pushes her into a state of near-breakdown. The film brilliantly evokes the tensions and back-stage dramas that precede a first night, interwoven with a deeply-moving portrait of a vulnerable actress at a crisis in her career and life. Gena Rowlands gives one of the screen's greatest performances in the central role.
