This documentary explores the fascinating world of US television showrunners and the creative forces aligned around them. These are the people responsible for creating, writing and overseeing every element of production on one of the United State's biggest exports - television drama and comedy series. Often described as the most complex job in the entertainment business, a showrunner is the chief writer/producer on a TV series and, in most instances, the show's creator. Battling daily between art and commerce, showrunners manage every aspect of a TV show's development and production; creative, financial and logistical. Featuring interviews with the showrunners behind Lost, Boardwalk Empire, The Big Bang Theory, The Good Wife, Sons of Anarchy, Spartacus, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Battlestar Galactica, Person of Interest and Revenge.

The 1975 television series The Naked Civil Servant transformed the life of its creator - fifty-something part-time life model and novelist Quentin Crisp. The story about his life as a homosexual growing up in wartime Britain made Quentin a household name. However, having finally gained the celebrity he craved, he is shunned. So he accepts an invitation to speak in New York. With his flamboyant style, rapier sharp wit, and honest, but seemingly perverse world view he's an instant hit, and New York proves to be Quentin's natural home.

Welsh-born Peter Greenaway is best known for his filmmaking during the 1980s and 90s, directing visually sumptuous films such as The Cook, The Thief, His Wife And Her Lover, Belly of an Architect and A Zed and Two Noughts. His films have polarised viewers, garnering international accolades and audience walk-outs. A fearless visionary and provocateur, he rejected narrative storytelling in favour of his trademark exploration of sex and death. Visiting Australia as the keynote speaker for the 2008 Australian International Documentary Conference, Greenaway spoke to Virginia Trioli about his body of work, and also what he's been up to since his last major feature film release in Australia.

This episode covers not only what a shot list is, how it should look, and whom to give it to, but also how to imbue camera instructions with emotion and personal investment. Extensive case studies from Lost and Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. demonstrate the way personal experience can and should affect everything from lens choice to camera placement.

Benedict Cumberbatch portrays Vincent Van Gogh to perfection in this powerful and critically acclaimed docudrama. Based on years of painstaking research, with every single word of dialogue sourced from his original writings, this is the artist's story, in his own words. For 18 years from 1872, Van Gogh chronicled his eventful life through some 900 letters to his younger brother Theo. The correspondence documents in vivid detail his travels and various occupations in the Netherlands, Belgium, England and France. Also explored, is his obsessive religious zeal, his artistic calling, the evolution of his skills, the way he used art and literature to discover and define himself, and the periods of mental instability and depression that plagued him during the years preceding his suicide. Now, this film weaves together the painter's recorded experiences into a compelling story. What emerges is a complex portrait of a sophisticated, civilised and yet tormented man.

When Hollywood came to be viewed as a place of the dammed and sinful, Will Hayes, a republican and Presbyterian, non-smoker, non-drinker, but wired to power in Washington and Wall Street, implemented the Hayes code which has been in force until the early 60s when it formally ended and was replaced by a rating system which rather warns than forbids. Ironically the enforcement of the code came as a challenge to script writers and directors and one can say that Hollywood's most creative era was due to it.

This film is based on the true story of Walter Keane who was one of the most successful painters of the 1950s and early 1960s. The artist earned staggering notoriety by revolutionising the commercialisation and accessibility of popular art with his enigmatic paintings of waifs with big eyes. The truth would eventually be discovered though: Keane's art was actually not created by him at all, but by his wife, Margaret. The Keanes, it seemed, had been living a lie that had grown to gigantic proportions. This film centres on Margaret's awakening as an artist, the phenomenal success of her paintings, and her tumultuous relationship with her husband, who was catapulted to international fame while taking credit for her work.

Returning to Rome from a war against the Goths, the general Titus Andronicus brings with him the queen Tamora and her three sons as prisoners of war. Titus' sacrifice of Tamora's eldest son to appease the ghosts of his dead sons, and his decision to refuse to accept the title of emperor, initiates a terrible cycle of mutilation, rape and murder. And all the while, at the centre of the nightmare, there moves the villainous, self-delighting Aaron. Grotesquely violent and daringly experimental, Titus was the smash hit of Shakespeare's early career, and is written with a ghoulish energy he was never to repeat elsewhere.
