As the Church of England gets ready to elect a new
Archbishop of Canterbury, many consider the Establishment Church both impotent and archaic. Will the liberalism of the 80s continue to be a viable policy?

Public Eye asks: what sort of national church do we need in the 90s?

The Ten Commandments of Krzysztof Kieslowski
Krzysztof Kieslowski is the foremost director to have emerged in Poland since Andrzej Wadja. His two most recent features,
A Short Film about Killing and A Short Film about
Love, shocked western audiences and critics with their pessimism and brutality. Shot during the final months of communist rule they are actually two in an extraordinary cycle of films made for Polish television. Each uses one of the Ten Commandments to explore the morality of Polish society - their subjects range from suicide to stamp-collecting, from incest to home computers. Arena talks to Kieslowski about these parables of contemporary life and his role as a modern-day Moses. Director Adam Low
Series editors Anthony Wall and Nigel Finch
