Last year, a Los Angeles based company installed a television, system on the small coral-fringed Pacific island of Yap. The entire population of the island is barely 5,500 and only 300 shacks under the palm trees have electricity ... why should this island need television?
Next year, the island, held in trust by the United States since the war, becomes independent.
Is the television system part of a plan to swamp the island with American values and institutions in furtherance of US strategic interests?

Death to the Tyrant!
A film spectacle based on the fantastic characters of Spain's greatest living artist, Joan Miro.
Mori el Merma! is the result of an unprecedented collaboration between Miro and ' La Claca', a group of young street-theatre players. They wanted to devise a show which would bring to life the weird, magical characters of Miro's paintings. Miro liked the idea, attended rehearsals and worked with the group on the show's huge costumes and masks. The experiment worked. The result was Mori el Merma! - a mixture of pantomime, Punch and Judy and the carnival - but also a fable about tyranny, with marked references to Spain's recent history under General Franco. It was received rapturously in Barcelona and went on to play with great success in London, Paris, Cologne, Milan, New York and even Australia.
Mori el Merma! was filmed last summer in its native Catalonia, using locations in and around Barcelona, expanding and reinterpreting the action of the stage play to suit the medium of film. Narrated by ROBERT CUSHMAN

A major five-part film series telling the story of one of history's great playwrights whose writings of 17th-century Paris life are memorable for their humour and perception.
5: Although Moliere has been allowed by Louis XIV to perform Tartuffe (despite objections from all sides, including Moliere's own company) he is displeased at the criticism of the court. Made unhappy by his wife's flirtations and betrayals at Versailles, Moliere fights an increasing melancholy and the fear of advancing age.

First in a season celebrating Hollywood's ' new wave ' directors of the 70s, starring
Martin Sheen , Sissy Spacek
This chilling portrait of a young murderer and his teenage accomplice was the remarkable debut of director Terrence Malick. Kit Carruthers dispassionately murders his girlfriend's father and together they head for Montana, leaving a trail of laconically executed mayhem behind them-before the fulfilment of Kit's dream of fame and an inevitable confrontation. Malick's superb visual sense is underpinned by the dialogue and a haunting commentary, which together create one of the most unusual and beautiful films of the decade.
Written, produced and directed by TERRENCE MALICK
(First showing on British television)
