Where the Dream Begins (9/16)
'I like this place in all its moods; I like the way it's been edited by wind and age.'
The place is Dartmoor, the creative environment of Brian Carter, artist, writer and poet.
Angela and Brian have in common a love of this austere landscape. Each, in their own way, has explored every corner of this wild, remote and beautiful countryside. Through his pictures, poetry and prose Brian recalls images of Dartmoor as it was in his boyhood. These were the days before the tourist when the moor was still a secret landscape - a dreamscape measured by the seasons, inhabited by characters like the badger, otter and the fox.
With Mikhail Baryshnikov and Gelsey Kirkland, with artists of the American Ballet Theatre.
The National Philharmonic conducted by Kenneth Schermerhorn
For his first major venture into choreography, Mikhail Baryshnikov chose one of the world's most popular ballets, The Nutcracker, to Tchaikovsky's enchanting score.
Baryshnikov says of the ballet: 'It is more than the spirit of Christmas. It has suspense, romance, fantasy - something for everyone. It also has, I think, the most glorious ballet music ever written.'
London, 1929: a foggy November day, and the grim spectre of unemployment threatens three young men from the Universal Advertising Agency until Morris comes up with the perfect solution: Murder!
'Best play of the season; every period detail right'. (The Listener)
'Strangely, compellingly Remarkable'. (The Stage)
Those 40 Glorious Years
Raymond Baxter takes a nostalgic took back to the days when Campbell, Cobb and Segrave were national heroes, to the days when Britons held the world's land speed record almost unchallenged. Nonagenarian Sammy Davis, a former motor racer and journalist, recalls those heroes. He was at school with Sir Malcolm Campbell - and Campbell's daughter Jean Wales has more personal memories of her brother Donald.
with Anne Jackson, Patrick O'Neal.
Suburban housewife Victoria Layton feels that her routine life and staid marriage are making her boring and unattractive. Discovering that her husband occasionally procures 100-dollar call-girls for a famous movie star, she decides to enjoy herself and increase her pocket money - with both moving and richly comic results.
Walter Matthau gives a masterly performance as the women-weary 'movie star' and stage actress Anne Jackson makes one of her all-too-rare screen appearances as the adventurous American wife.
