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.

Take one pair of estranged twin brothers (both called Antipholus), and one pair of estranged twin servants (both called Dromio), keep them in ignorance of each other and throw them into a city with a reputation for sorcery, and you have all the ingredients for theatrical chaos. One Antipholus is astonished by his foreign hospitality; the other enraged by the hostility of his home town. The Dromios, caught between the two, are soundly beaten for obeying all the wrong orders. Basing his plot on a farce by Plautus, Shakespeare caps the mayhem of his Roman original to build up a hectic tale of violent cross-purposes, furious slapstick and social nightmare.

The heist has been the centre of many of the greatest and varied films in cinematic history. This episode examines this popular genre from Stanley Kubrick's The Killing, influenced by classic film noir but retold in documentary style, to Jules Dassin's Rififi, featuring a classic heist sequence, to 1960s stylish caper films such as The Italian Job and Topkapi. 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.

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.
