Acoustic Sounds from Africa
In tonight's programme, compelling performances from Baaba Maal and S. E. Rogie illustrate the extraordinary diversity of acoustic music from West Africa. In his native Senegal, Baaba Maal is the idol of the Poular-speaking Toucouleur population. Shortly before forming his electric band Dande Lenol (Voice of the Race) in 1985, he recorded a set of acoustic material with blind guitarist Mansour Seek . The two were recently reunited for one of the most stunning concerts of the year. S. E. Rogie , from Sierra Leone, is the leading exponent of Palm Wine Guitar music which evolved in the clubs and bars of West Africa in the late 1950s and typically deals with the more humorous aspects of love and life.

Gertrud was the last film to be directed by Carl Theodor Dreyer and is the culmination of his life's work, epitomising his meticulous and subtle analysis of the undercurrents of sexual relationships.
Since its release in 1965, the film has steadily gained in reputation. Unwilling to take second place in her husband's life, Gertrud seeks fulfilment in an affair with a wild young composer.
Based on the play by HJALMAR SODERBERG
Written and directed by CARL THEODOR DREYER
(A Danish film with English subtitles. First showing on British television. Black and white)

Johannes Meyer Astrid Holm.
The Master of the House, made in 1925, was the film that made Dreyer's name throughout Europe. A light-hearted essay on male selfishness, it features delightful performances from Astrid Holm as the devoted wife and mother and Johannes Meyer as the thoughtless domestic tyrant.
Screenplay by CARL THEODOR DREYER and SVEND RINDOM from the play by SVEND RINDOM
