Steven Spielberg says that science fiction is the greatest exercise for the brain, it stretches the belief that anything is possible. George Lucas, Ridley Scott and James Cameron talk about how science fiction films developed from the earlier naive films to today's sophisticated sci-fi thrillers, and how they have remained popular.

Episode Six takes viewers inside the daily operations of a popular tabloid newspaper.

The result is a forensic look at how this cheeky tabloid publication deliberately set out to grab the political agenda in the 2003 New South Wales election campaign.

Leading journalists Maxine McKew, Ray Martin, Andrew Rule and Brisbane's Tony Koch talk about the pressure on reporters to censor themselves when reporting on black violence in Aboriginal communities. Finally, we hear the stories of two journalists - one well known, one lesser known - who have struggled with the ethics of chequebook journalism.

In this episode we enter the tabloid world of early evening commercial current affairs programs and explore the impact of the race for ratings on what viewers see and hear.
A compelling look at the portrayal of World War II, this program reveals the myths, propaganda and the rise of realism in the war film. British wartime films were made as propaganda but also drew on a strong documentary tradition.
Episode Two considers the question: Does it matter whether journalists are objective in their interviews? We take the audience to the offices, control room and set of ABC TV's 7.30 Report with presenter Kerry O'Brien.

Romance is part of the attraction of the cinema, with its gorgeous stars and passionate on-screen (and off-screen) love affairs. This program looks not only at the famous romantic stars of classic Hollywood like Marilyn Monroe and later Sophia Loren and Brigitte Bardot, but it also looks at Hollywood's reflection of social attitudes towards sex, love and marriage and how they have changed over time. A comparison between the suppressed feelings of Brief Encounter, the sexual freedom of A Bout de Souffle and the sexual domesticity of Annie Hall provides a new and intriguing angle on the genre of romantic films. Features Dino de Laurentiis, Raoul Coutard, Bigas Luna and Nora Ephron.

The more violent heists of Hong Kong cinema became a source for Quentin Tarantino's Reservoir Dogs and this episode looks at the recent re-invention of gangster films. Features Jules Dassin, Takeshi Kitano, Claudia Cardinale, Mario Monicelli and James Harris.
