[Starring] Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers in the musical The Story of Vernon and Irene Castle

In the memorable years between 1911 and 1918, the dancing of Vernon and Irene Castle captured the hearts of everyone. In later years the equally famous dancing partnership of Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers was to do the same; and this musical biography of the Castles is perhaps the most tuneful and tender of the films that they made together.

Variations on a Mechanical Theme
An investigation into mechanical instruments from the musical box to the automatic orchestra.

In The Rhondda
Life in the Welsh mining valleys as seen by English painter George Chapman.
'Chapman's sympathy was in every canvas and model of his that we saw, as Wilfrid Owen's pity for the soldier was in his poetry.' (The Listener)
