Stanley Kubrick's long-awaited film The Shining opens in London this week and throughout the country from tomorrow. To mark the event Arena offers a unique opportunity to eavesdrop on the set of the legendary but elusive film director. Kubrick's youngest daughter Vivian, having obtained her father's reluctant consent, was on location throughout the filming armed with an Aaton camera and a miniature tape recorder. The result is some unusually candid scenes of the director at work with his stars - Jack Nicholson and Shelley Duvall.

At the end of his journey across the USA, Donny MacLeod visits San Francisco, billed in the travelogues as ' America's favourite city ' -and it doesn't take him long to discover why. Wandering its streets is like strolling through a non-stop open-air performance. Every day is a carnival - the side-walks crowded with jugglers, one-man bands, string quartets, clowns and mime artists. Even the city's public transport seems to have sprung from the dream of a crazy Victorian inventor. The street cars are hauled up the steep hills by a continuous cable - and the brake-men who drive them are just as eccentric. MacLeod is shown the city by champion brakeman CARL PAYNE , and is welcomed aboard by the cry ' if you ain't a Christian at the top of the hill, you will be by the time we reach the bottom '.
