Fleeing a shotgun wedding, the happy-go-lucky Fanfan is persuaded to join the army of Louis XV by the recruiting officer's daughter. She tells him that his destiny is to marry the king's daughter. His acts of derring-do bring him love and honour. He promptly rescues the king's daughter and Madame Pompadour from coach robbers and wins the princess's hand in marriage. Honour is his too when he almost single-handedly defeats the Austrian army, by which stage all his dreams have come true. In French with English subtitles.

Disability Programmes Unit. A Cry in the Cosmos
When people power forced the collapse of the Berlin Wall in November 1989, a steamroller of change was launched in eastern Europe. Since then many of the early hopes and expectations have crumbled; racist attacks on refugees, foreign "guest workers" and disabled people have led to fears of a resurgence of the radical right. But many in the disability movement warn that the threat from the liberal left under the guise of euthanasia and assisted suicide is just as real as the threat of the neo Nazis.
