Recorded live from Shakespeare's Globe Theatre. The Tudor Court is locked in a power struggle between its nobles and the Machiavellian Cardinal Wolsey, the King's first minister and the most conspicuous symbol of Catholic power in the land. Wolsey's ambition knows no bounds and when his chief ally, Queen Katherine, interferes in the King's romance with Anne Bullen, he brings gigantic ruin upon himself, the Queen and centuries of English obedience to Rome. Famous in its own day as Shakespeare's most sumptuous and spectacular play, Henry VIII is a gorgeous pageant of masques and royal ceremony; a blaze of fireworks, cannon fire, red satin and cloth of gold. But within the passages of grandeur works the mind of the mature Shakespeare: psychological and political insight, language of great depth and power and, in the figures of Wolsey and Katherine, two of his most vivid and memorable characters.

The three of them find themselves ranged against Frollo's cruelty and his attempts to destroy the home of the gypsies, the Court of Miracles.

This is the tragic story of a married aristocrat/socialite and her affair with the affluent Count Vronsky. The story starts when she arrives in the midst of a family broken up by her brother's unbridled womanizing - something that prefigures her own later situation, though she would experience less tolerance by others. A bachelor, Vronsky is eager to marry her if she would agree to leave her husband Alexei Karenin, a government official, but she is vulnerable to the pressures of Russian social norms, her own insecurities, and Karenin's indecision. Although Vronsky and Anna go to Italy, where they can be together, they have trouble making friends. Back in Russia, she is shunned, becoming further isolated and anxious, while Vronsky pursues his social life. Despite Vronsky's reassurances, she grows increasingly possessive and paranoid about his imagined infidelity, fearing loss of control. Music by Rodion Shchedrin and choreography by Alexei Ratmansky.

At the very core of the craft of directing is working with actors. Central to the Bobby Roth method of directing is to prepare as extensively as possible in preparation in order to be available to the actors during production. During production, time is especially precious, and actors require great attention and sensitivity to deliver their best performances. In this double-episode, we take an extended look at the question Bobby is most frequently asked by students and young film makers: how do you get actors to do what you want? Interviews with more than twenty leading actors shed a diverse array of insights into what is expected of directors and the best strategies for building productive working relationships with them.

Jennifer welcomes book lovers to a special movable feast, as we follow some restless writers, On The Road. From Marco Polo's reports from the mysterious East, Mark Twain's adventures right here in Australia, through to Che Guevara's formative wanderings across South America, travel literature has a long, proud history. Books like Elizabeth Gilbert's Eat Pray Love - and writers like Bill Bryson - regularly top the bestseller lists, yet there are those who consider the genre a shot duck.

The restoration of the English monarchy in 1660 marked the beginning of a new era not only for English society but also for English culture. In drama, art and music, the century following the accession of King Charles II was a magnificent age, and in poetry, the era produced some the country's greatest ever men of verse. Drawing on contemporary events for subject matter and the classical past for inspiration, John Dryden, Alexander Pope and Samuel Johnson defined the poetic spirit of the time. These men were the greatest poets of the English Augustan Age.
