'To the wakeful, to the hopeful, walking the beach, stirring the pool, come imaginations of the strangest kind; of flesh turned to atoms and driven before the wind.'
(VIRGINIA WOOLF, 1882-1941)
Virginia Woolf is regarded by many as one of the century's greatest English novelists. This film was made 12 years ago, when many who knew her were still alive: the painter Duncan Grant , novelist Elizabeth Bowen and critic Raymond Mortimer. Others who survive and contribute to this celebration of her life and work include Lord David Cecil and her biographer and nephew Quentin Bell. Narrator GAVIN MILLAR

The Horse from the Gods
An Indian is interrupted at his prayers by a great saddled beast moving slowly towards him out of the rising sun. This is the beginning of a dramatised version of how an American Indian sees his first horse, is terrified by it and then learns to ride it.
It is 1541. Until this date no horse had been seen in North America. Then the Spanish Conquistadores brought them in their search for fabled gold and in doing so revolutionised the life of the Indian, and indeed of the whole continent.

Tonight starring Lee Marvin, Gene Hackman
