The Trail Blazers
Films of early exploration introduced from the Royal
Geographical Society by the pioneer polar explorer, Duncan Carse Under the Sea by Photosphere (1914)
'Down came the divers leaving a trail of silvery bubbles and, before the window of our photosphere, under the eye of the clicking camera, they dived and swam. Soon we had shot the first motion pictures ever taken under the sea. I was filled with elation ..." The words of John Williamson , self-styled 'Originator of Undersea
Photography'. Williamson had lowered his specially-cast four-ton steel photosphere into the clear waters of the Bahamas. Here, despite many near-disasters, he successfully filmed the fish and the corals, the wrecks and the sharks.

Jerry Lee Lewis doesn't sound like anybody else - the voice, the piano and the on-stage antics make an unforgettable combination. He plays and sings today exactly as he did when he made his first records in the 1950s. Since then he has kept his reputation for wildness, eccentricity and the ability to hold an audience spellbound. Arena captured him in concert and on top form. Producer ALAN YENTOB
Director ANTHONY WALL (R) (Postponed from 7 September)

A two-part adaptation of the novel by E.F. Benson dramatised by Thomas Ellice.

Spend some time in the company of the guests at "Wentworth" - all taking the waters except for the Colonel and Miss Howard, who has some leisure for the beginnings of a late romance. Gossip, bicycle rides, rounds of golf, bridge in the evenings and preparations for the charity concert all make time pass most pleasantly - don't they?
