Six Films of Early Exploration
Introduced from the Royal Geographical Society by Duncan Carse 2 : Across Darkest Africa (1924)
This historic film is a record of the first motorised crossing of the African continent by the French Citroen Expedition of 1924. The vehicles were specially fitted with caterpillar half-tracks, and eight of these Citroen Specials laboured their way 13,000 miles across Africa from Algeria to Mozambique. The journey took over eight months, and started with a crossing of the Sahara.
On its way, the expedition was greeted by a horde of 3,000 horse-men and dromedary riders. After crossing Lake Chad and the country of the plate-lipped women, the explorers went big-game hunting for elephant, lion and hippopotamus. They floated the cars across rivers on pontoons made of canoes lashed together; visited the pygmies in their forest stronghold; and finally forced their way across hundreds of miles of trackless swamps and savannah to reach
The pith-helmeted explorers, the labouring vehicles, and the country and people of Africa in the 1920s are all vividly captured in this film of one of the greatest early mechanised expeditions. Narrator PIERRE VALMER

Reflections by Margot Fonteyn A series of six programmes 4:The Romantic Balletwith Roland Petit
Marguerite Porter , Yoke Morishita Ivan Nagy , Mette Hsnningen Flemming Ryberg
Royal Danish Ballet Orchestra of the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden conductor Ashley Lawrence
In 1832 the most famous ballerina in the world was Marie Taglioni. One of the first to dance on the tips of her toes, she epitomised the Romantic Age.
MARGOT FONTEYN traces the story of the Romantic ballet and its greatest exponents. By mid-century, however, there were new styles - the waltz, the can-can, the music-hall in its prime. It was left to the Russians to revive the romantic age in 1909 when they brought to Paris their own version of Les Sylphides. The programme includes part of this famous ballet, danced in its original setting by MARGOT FONTEYN, MARGUERITE PORTER, YOKO MORISHITA and IVAN NAGY.
