Last of a series of eight prize-winning films from different parts of the world. The Mysterious Bee
Australian Phil Simon filmed the more unusual and mysterious aspects of the bees in his suburban garden. Spine-tingling sequences show him covered by some 12,000 bees and not getting stung to death.

Andrei Sakharov , considered by many 'the greatest physicist in the world', is a distinguished member of the Soviet Academy of Sciences. But his presence at protests against the treatment of colleagues and his opposition to the use of nuclear arms lead to his dismissal. Joining a group of Moscow dissidents and re-marrying to Yelena Bonner , his determination and persistence bring him trouble with the authorities and recognition in the West. This powerful film recreates the struggle of the celebrated Russian dissident who in 1980 was exiled with his wife to
Gorky, a city closed to foreign visitors.
