C. P. Snow (1905-1980)
'I often write about people who, using the camp phrase, are part of the Establishment. But many of the characters I m most interested in are not figures of that kind.'
C. P. Snow's major series of 11 novels Strangers and Brothers - a subtle and ambitious exploration of Britain's professional classes over 50 years- has been adapted as a major new BBC series.
Snow's career began in science, and took him, via radar research in World War n, into government - the 'corridors of power', and the House of Lords. His novels examine the so-called Establishment from within its own borders - yet Snow, the son of a clerk, always felt himself to be an outsider - a position he thought essential for a writer.
The programme combines excerpts from the drama series with assessments of C. P. Snow from
Lord Wilson , Sir Patrick Nairne Sir Bernard Lovell Sir John Plumb and the novelist Susan Hill

The feature film starring Charles Bronson and Jan Michael Vincent.
Arthur Bishop is a professional killer: in underworld jargon 'a mechanic'. Methodically, almost artistically, he murders people for money - always working alone. Until, that is, he becomes involved with the son of a friend and now a victim. In the handsome and athletic Steve, Bishop sees a reflection of his own determination and ruthlessness. It is, however, a relationship that invites danger and death.
