Tonight's film in a season of outstanding feature films of the last ten years stars Carroll Baker, Ian Bannen, Denholm Elliott, Peter Van Eyck

The mutual contempt of five men confined in a remote desert pumping station turns to open hatred when an attractive woman arrives on the scene unexpectedly.
Produced in 1962 as a joint British-West German production, Station 6 Sahara features fine performances from Ian Bannen as a coarse Scot and Denholm Elliott as an ex-British officer. Carroll Baker of Baby Doll fame plays the girl who changes all their lives very dramatically. A taut script by Bryan Forbes and Brian Clemens and determined direction by Seth Holt turn this exciting story into an original and intelligent film.

Marlborough is a country town about 80 miles from 'swinging' London. It's a place where on the surface little seems to have changed for hundreds of years.
How do people who live in places like Marlborough spend their leisure? What do they think of today's 'permissive' society? Do their sons and daughters envy those who live in larger and more fashionable places?
This film asks these questions and gets some surprising answers.
