First of a two-part documentary to celebrate Elstree's 75th anniversary.
Presented by David Puttnam. Best known today as the home of EastEnders, Elstree once boasted six film studios, which made it the biggest production centre outside
Hollywood. It was here that Alfred Hitchcock ,
Charles Laughton , Audrey Hepburn and many others launched their careers; where the first British sound picture was recorded; where The Private Life of Henry VIII made cinema history; and where hundreds of popular films have since come to life, among them The Dam
Busters, Moby Dick , 2001 and Star Wars. And it all began, 75 years ago, on the site of Albert Square....

Ever since its noisy birth out of the primitive fuzzboxes of the 1960s, heavy metal music has been maligned and misunderstood by public and critics alike. But, to its millions of fans worldwide, heavy metal is the only form of popular music with any integrity, the true keeper of the eternal flame of rock 'n' roll. This is an exploration of the music in all its aspects, from its origins in the blues to the Black Country and beyond, with the aid of a truly unbeatable line-up including Jimmy Page, Ozzy Osbourne , Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath, Motorhead, Guns 'n' Roses, Iron Maiden, Deep Purple, Metallica, Megadeth, Slayer, Jimi Hendrix, Kiss, David Lee Roth and Napalm Death.
Plus an oblique look at heavy metal's event of the year; Castle Donington, where the fans gather as devotedly as pilgrims to Canterbury.
with Peter Snow and Donald MacCormick with international reports by DAVID SELLS.
CHARLES WHEELER , GAVIN ESLER and JULIAN O'HALLORAN.
Max Cady is out! After sight years in prison all he wants is revenge on Sam Bowden , the small-town lawyer who got him convicted. Revenge at any cost, the more violent the better.
