Bells. Over the centuries there have been many hundreds of bell foundries in this country; today there are only two. The
Whitechapel Bell Foundry has made some of the most famous bells in the world, including the Liberty Bell in America and Big Ben in London. Today's film shows how a bell is made, from moulding to casting and tuning, and features several of the craftsmen who make up this small firm which has been in existence for over 500 years.

Six Artists on Drawing
Roy Marsden works with a variety of media, combining rubbings, paint spray and line to produce his images. His series of pictures, called About the House, explores the shapes and surfaces of the home he has created for himself in Wales. They evoke an atmosphere that is sometimes comfortably nostalgic, sometimes menacingly alienated, revealing more of the artist's emotional relationship with his home and his past than he had originally intended.
