The World's Newest Island
On 14 November 1963 Surtur, the Fire Giant, erupted out of the North Atlantic; this was the spectacular birth of Surtsey, an island off Iceland's southern coast.
At first nothing lived on its molten landscape, but as it cooled an invasion of life began. Here was a unique opportunity for scientists to observe an island community of animals and plants in creation, and record the processes of colonisation which have been going on ever since life began on earth.

Written and directed by SATYAJIT RAY
In a small village in Bengal, a would-be writer and his wife eke out a bare existence and raise their children, Durga and Apu. An added burden is an aged relative. In the unchanging, centuries-old world of rural India, the children grow up.
Pather Panchali - the first part of a trilogy - was mostly shot on location, with non-professional actors. Satyajit Ray won from them performances of total integrity. The film's most striking quality is its universality - the family would be much the same and just as familiar if they lived in the Home Counties or Lancashire.
