A 13-part history of the United States written, narrated by Alistair Cooke 6: Gone West
From a cave in Kentucky once occupied by Daniel Boone to the California of the Gold Rush; ALISTAIR COOKE follows the route of the early pioneers.

An 11-part television history of Britain at work in the 20th century. 8: Scientific Change
Though the risk of poison gas, acid spills and explosions was always present, pay was high in the chemical industry and there were few disputes. Chemical workers tell a human success story, as well as a technical and commercial one. The out-dated Victorian heavy chemical industry managed to modernise itself after 1914. Strong new companies were formed and caught up with Germany and America. What was their secret?

(La prise du pouvoir par Louis XIV) The feature film by ROBERTO ROSSELLINI starring Jean-Marie Patte Raymond Jourdan
The great Cardinal Mazarin , the power behind the French throne, is dying. His final advice to young play-boy King Louis XIV is to take over the reins of the government himself. Louis sets about his personal revolution with unexpected skill and resolution. Rossellini's compelling study of political manipulation - as relevant today as in the 17th century - was hailed as a masterpiece when shown in London last year.
