The TT 80 Years On
It's a paradox that the world's most dangerous race track should also be the one to have survived the longest. The Isle of Man has been on the international motorcycle racing calendar since 1907, and has claimed 141 lives, but support for it is as fanatical now as at any time in its history. The Isle of Man government plays some part in this by making sure its number one tourist attraction doesn't run into any financial barriers. But, strangely in this modern age, money alone is not the lure here. In no other motor sport arena is the pursuit of the perfect performance so elusive as on the 37 and three-quarter-mile Isle of Man mountain course.... and for the specialist road-racer, that is an attraction that exceeds all others.

A series of six programmes about 'the fathers of Europe'. Presented by Frank Delaney 3: A Pagan Trinity
'Exceedingly given to religious superstition' was how Julius Caesar described the Celts. Certainly their pagan worship and ritual practices are the stuff of legend. They believed in an otherworld of peace, joy and eternal youth. They found their gods and goddesses in the natural world. They worshipped the severed head and their Druids conducted strange sacrifices in sacred groves.
When the Christians arrived there was amalgamation as well as conversion. Film editors

'Dear Nick....How much fan mail do you get? Too much I expect. You obviously can't answer them all so what happens to them? In the bin? I think I deserve something more than to be thrown away among the cigarette ends, beer cans, and bills. Love Cheryl.'
A film which looks behind the millions of fan letters sent to pop stars to show what a disturbing and often frightening form of obsession this can be.
