In 1933, the year the British Film Institute was founded, Charles Laughton collected an Oscar for his performance in The Private Life of Henry the Eighth. In 1983 Ben Kingsley received the same accolade for his part in another international success, Gandhi. With clips from films old and new, acclaimed and popular, Britain at the Pictures presents a celebration of over 50 years of the achievements of British film makers and the experiences of British filmgoers. Written by DAVID ROBINSON Narrated by Sir Richard Attenborough

For Voices and Instruments
A television recording from the Henry Wood Promenade Concert on 23 July of the European premiere of Sir Michael Tippett 's latest work.
Words written and compiled by the composer
The major factor precipitating Tippett toward writing The Mask of Time was the humane vision and imaginative breadth of Jacob Bronowski 's television series The Ascent of Man. The Times called the piece: 'A huge audacious paradox ... a penetrating vision ... sometimes vague and allusive, but always coherent -of alarming richness and depth'. Before the performance Sir Michael talks about the sources and influences of his work with his biographer and assistant Meirion Bowen , who has written '... The Mask of Time is a composition by someone with a profound vision of what is inevitably destroyed and what might survive. It is also a manifestation of musical mastery in its variety of techniques and integrity of language.' with Faye Robinson (soprano)
Felicity Palmer (mezzo-soprano) Jon Garrison (tenor) John Cheek (bass) BBC Singers
BBC Symphony Orchestra leader BELA DEKANY conducted by Andrew Davis
The performance begins at approximately 8.55 pm
(During the interval Sir Michael Tippett continues his talk with Meirion Bowen )

The feature film starring Julie Harris Claire Bloom , Russ Tamblyn
Three mysterious deaths have left Hill House , an old mansion near Boston, shrouded in an aura of evil. Richard Markway decides to open up the 'haunted house' after 80 years and goes there with a team of helpers, including the sceptical Luke and Theo who has extrasensory powers. But when the group assembles the haunting and terror begin again. This remarkable and spine-chilling film is one of the best essays in the supernatural ever put on screen.
