starring Robert Young Randolph Scott The year is 1861: Western Union is constructing the Omaha-Salt Lake City stretch of what is to be the first transcontinental telegraph system in the US. Opposition to the telegraph comes not only from Sioux
Indians but also from a group of renegade Southerners. This ZANE GREY story, a strictly traditional western, was directed by Fritz Lang , the greatest of the European directors who made the transition to Hollywood in the 1930s.

Bobby Charlton's background was football - his brother Jack signed for Leeds, while Bobby became a 'Busby Babe' at Manchester United. Then tragedy, as eight of his fellow 'babes' were killed in the Munich air disaster 30 years ago. Those who survived had a bond - a will to avenge the fates - and to see Manchester United rise again. For Charlton the challenge at United culminated in the European Cup competition in 1968, while his England goal was '1966 and all that'.

The first of the Ealing comedies to be made in colour is set in the charming village of Titfield, which is linked to the nearest town,
Mallingford, by a single-track railway of more social than economic importance.
Unfortunately, a government decision to nationalise the railways closes the line. The outraged residents, led by the vicar, are determined that the rail service be restored, but the newly founded bus company is equally determined that it will remain axed.

Michael Ignatieff introduces one of the most striking documentaries ever made. The Sorrow and the Pity tells a remarkable story of France under the Occupation. The French and the Germans, politicians, generals, collaborators, private soldiers and the Maquis, recount their experiences with astonishing frankness. The picture that emerges is very far from the popular image of wartime France.
Part 1: The Collapse covers the early years of the war and the setting up of the Vichy regime.

Each season Arena invites a distinguished figure in the arts to direct a film. This year's guest director is John Byrne, painter and author of Tutti Frutti. In this diverse and inventive autobiography, Byrne travels from his youth, through his art school years to the period of his stage and TV plays, and on to his death sometime in the future.
With him is Robbie Coltrane as himself and as a shamus invented by Byrne, who discovers there are as many aspects to the author as there are actors playing him.

Adapted by its author from his award-winning play, this richly compelling work is set in wartime Britain. Albert Finney stars as a grandiloquent and boorish actor-manager having trouble keeping his company on the road. Tom Courtenay repeats his original stage success as the long-suffering, outrageously camp 'dresser' and assistant to the great man. The film was chosen as the Royal Film in 1984 and received considerable critical acclaim at home and abroad for its comic and compassionate view of life offstage.

Time Is All You've Got Another opportunity to see this much-acclaimed Oscar-winning portrait of jazz bandleader and clarinettist
Artie Shaw. At the age of 74, Shaw reflects on his much varied career, his eight marriages, his ambitions as a novelist, his war service and the strains which twice led to him walking out on his band at the height of their popularity, calling his fans morons.
Using rarely seen archive film and contributions from band members and friends, Brigitte Berman 's film provides a unique insight into a man variously described as an idealist, a romantic, impractical and - above all - a genius.
Written, produced and directed by BRIGITTE BERMAN
