revealed by Lady Wedgwood The last in a series of explorations into the hidden meanings of five paintings The Ambassadors by Hans Holbein
In this painting brilliant realism and a rich texture of symbols compete for admiration. The ambassadors are flanked by a still-life whose iconography reveals their hopes and fears. The symbolism points to doubts behind their self-confident stance and leads to the central political crisis of their day - the divorce of Henry VHI from Catherine of Aragon.

Derek Malcolm introduces two autobiographical films by Italy's Federico Fellini.
(The Layabouts) starring Franco Fabrizi Leonora Ruffo
Franco Interlenghi Fausto, leader of a group of young layabouts, is forced into a shotgun wedding and into a boring job. Shirking his unwanted responsibilities, Fausto clings to the role of Casanova and wide-boy. Although Fellini left his hometown Rimini as a teenager, his portrait of the aimless young men who stayed on is closely modelled on his own experiences.
