In 1992, the people of Canada had to vote "Yes" or "No" to a new constitution. For the first time in their political history, the Aboriginal people became part of the political process. This film - directed by Gil Cardinal , himself a Metis (half Cree, half French Canadian) - follows Ovide Mercredi , a charismatic and eloquent Cree Indian , as he travels across the country cajoling, explaining and sometimes confronting those who refuse to recognise the rights of his people in a reformed Canadian constitution. Series editor Andre Singer An AFP/Great Plains production for BBCtv
The Private Eye annual awards come to television for the first time. From the most unnecessary sex shown on TV (nominees are The Camomile Lawn, A Time to Dance and Linford Christie 's 100m win) and worst prediction of the year (Norman Lamont for "We're staying in the ERM",
Neil Kinnock for "I will be prime minister" or any Peter Snow election prediction?), to the most irritating advert of the year (the Gold Blend couple v J R Hartley), the race is on to pick up a coveted Bofty award. Angus Deayton hosts the ceremony and the star presenters include Ian Hislop , Peter Cook , Michael Palin , Harry Enfield , Richard Ingrams , Griff Rhys Jones, Paul Merton ,
Rory Bremner and John Sessions. Director Janet FraserCrook

Hearts of Darkness: a Film-Maker's Apocalypse
In the making of his movie Apocalypse
Now, Francis Ford
Coppola was supported through appalling trials and tribulations by his vision. Beset by typhoons, wars, heart attacks, nervous breakdowns and drugs, he emerged with a masterpiece. This documentary includes interviews with the major protagonists, the observations of Eleanor Coppola and some of her own revealing film footage. Directors Fax Bahr and George Hickenlooper

In 1965 Marlon Brando was flown to New York to promote his new movie, Morituri. For one day he was subjected to an endless stream of interviews. Albert and David Maysles , the celebrated documentarists, filmed the events and reveal the great actor at his most charming, intelligent - and unconventional.
Tennessee Williams 's story of the disastrous relationship between fading Southern belle Blanche Du Bois and her brutish brother-in-law Stanley Kowalski had won a Pulitzer
Prize as a Broadway play. Elia Kazan 's film version won five
Oscars including Best Actress for Vivien Leigh 's moving performance as Blanche.
As Stanley Kowalski , the role he had created on Broadway, Marlon Brando became the biggest star in Hollywood and his extraordinary, powerful performance introduced a new style of acting that was to influence a generation - both on and off the screen.
