Canvas looks again at some of the world's most famous paintings previously seen in the series "First Eleven".

"I am painting with the rapture of a Marseillais eating bouillabaisse, which won't surprise you when you hear that the subject is sunflowers," wrote Van Gogh to his brother in 1888. He painted several versions of this picture, to hang on his bedroom wall at Arles. Today thousands of reproductions hang in homes all over the world: yet in his own lifetime Van Gogh sold only one painting.

Paul Harris looks at Sunflowers and other well-known paintings by Van Gogh, not as objects of art history but as images which relate directly to our everyday experience.

The first of two films from Sweden's most famous director
Starring Max Von Sydow, Ingrid Thulin, Gunnar Bjornstrand, Naima Wifstrand

Is mesmerist and magician Dr Vogler a fraud? Three government officials try to prove he is but in the end they find themselves partially under his control. Ingmar Bergman's intriguing excursion into the occult brings Max Von Sydow and Gunnar Bjornstrand, two of Sweden's most famous actors, literally face to face.
Bibi Andersson, who plays Sara in The Face, co-stars next week with Harriet Andersson, Eva Dahlbeck and Jarl Kulle in Bergman's first film in colour, Now About These Women. This is a broad comedy about a music critic's unsuccessful attempts to interview a famous cellist.
