Today starring Orson Welles
Considered by the associate producer as 'the greatest experimental
American film ever made under the Hollywood studio system', this imaginative version of Macbeth was filmed by Welles in the space of three weeks. Accounting for the liberties he had taken with Shakespeare's text, Welles called it 'a kind of violently sketched charcoal drawing of a great play'.
Screenplay by ORSON WELLES from the play by WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE Produced and directed by ORSON WELLES

A holy father:
One hundred and fifty years ago, on 31 August, 1835, a railway bill ended its tortuous journey through Parliament, and the Great Western Railway was bom. Anthony Burton follows in the footsteps of Isambard Kingdom Brunel to tell of the 'Little Giant' and 'The finest work in England'.
Ray Gosling wanders off the tracks and through six counties between London and Bristol to discover why the Great Western was said to be 'of a piece' with the territory it served. The young Queen Victoria, Oscar Wilde, Sir John Betjeman, the 'Young Gentleman of Eton' and a modern-day musical, all play a part in this
Great Western Journey. Produced by Barry Bevins BBC Manchester (R)

The Yeomen of the Guard is the oldest Royal bodyguard in existence, this year celebrating 500 years of unbroken service to the Kings and Queens of England.
At the Battle of Bosworth
Field in 1485 they fought for Henry Tudor , who decreed that from then on the Guard would 'uphold the dignity and grandeur of the English Crown for all time'.
Not to be confused with the Beefeaters at the Tower of London who wear a similar uniform, the Queen's bodyguard, although still drawn from the ranks of fighting soldiers, is, these days, purely ceremonial, accompanying the Monarch on all great State occasions.
The film follows the Guard in its anniversary year, from searching the cellars before the State Opening of Parliament, to escorting The Queen at the Royal Maundy Service, the Garter
Ceremony, garden parties, an investiture, and finally their anniversary parade at Buckingham Palace.
