In the ongoing war against hypocrisy, conservatism, political correctness, and prejudice,it was always the comedian who led the first wave of attack. Rather than using risqué jokes and four-letter words simply to get a rise out of an audience, the most audacious comedians – from pioneers like Mae West and Moms Mabley to 60s and 70s bad boys like Lenny Bruce, Richard Pryor and George Carlin – invoked what the First Amendment of the American Constitution calls ‘freedom of speech’ to bring the biggest and most dangerous laughs to the American public.

For 50 years Harold Pinter was at the centre of theatrical life not just in his home country of Britain, but all over the world. It is hard to over-estimate the impact of his work. Not only a remarkable playwright with one of the most illustrious careers in contemporary theatre, Pinter's career also encompassed acting, poetry and political activism as a vociferous critic of American and British foreign policy. He also won the Nobel prize for literature. His 29 plays are continually produced with undimmed enthusiasm by school students and great directors and actors alike. In this hour-long program director Harry Burton invited Pinter to participate in a master class with actors and some observers. The film is an attempt to capture something of the collaborative spirit that made working with him a very special experience.

Claudio loves Hero and Hero Claudio and nothing seems capable of tearing them apart. Claudio's friend Benedick loves Beatrice and Beatrice Benedick, but (because neither will admit it) nothing seems capable of bringing them together. Only the intrigues of a resentful prince force Benedick to prove his love for Beatrice - by killing his best friend. Driven along by a romance all the more charming for being unacknowledged, Much Ado About Nothing is a miracle of comic and dramatic suspense and gives us, in the bantering Beatrice and Benedick, two of Shakespeare's wittiest, most lovable pair of lovers.

Three years in the making, American: The Bill Hicks Story brings the tale of one of modern culture's most iconic heroes to the big screen. Much more than a comedian, Bill Hicks was and still is an inspiration to millions. His timeless comedy tackled the contradictions of America and modern life head on. But his unique gift was to tease apart the essence of religion, the dangers of unbridled government power and the double standards inherent in much of modern society, using nothing but his hilarious ideas and the uncompromising observational style that continues to resonate with successive generations.

Award-winning documentary In The Company of Actors is a behind-the-scenes look at the creation of the New York production of Andrew Upton's modern Hedda Gabler starring Cate Blanchett, Hugo Weaving, Aden Young, Justine Clark and director Robyn Nevin.

It is not a place into which the public is often, if ever, invited. Until now.

The People Speak is a documentary that celebrates and encourages the influence seemingly powerless people can effect when they rally for their cause through the spoken word and its dramatic delivery. It is a thematic history of dissent and protest as captured by the words people have used when they felt the need to be heard. The form is simple: fine actors take to a clean, leanly designed stage to delivery rousing monologues derived from letters, songs, poems, speeches and manifestos.

Self-denial is in fashion at the court of Navarre where the young King and three of his courtiers solemnly forswear all pleasures in favour of serious study. But the Princess of France and her all-too-lovely entourage have other ideas and it isn't long before young love, with it's glad eyes, hesitations and embarrassments, has broken every self-imposed rule of the all-male 'academy'. Shakespeare's boisterous send-up of all those who try to turn their back on life, is a festive parade of every weapon in the youthful playwright's comic arsenal: from excruciating cross-purposes and impersonations, to drunkenness, bust-ups and pratfalls. Even more, it is a joyful banquet of language, groaning with puns, rhymes, bizarre syntax, grotesque coinages and parodies.
