This is a remarkable portrait of a great writer. It explores how Graham Greene's life both inspired great writing and drove him to attempt suicide. He was a British spy, a doubting Catholic, and a manic-depressive who wrote critically acclaimed bestselling novels, including The Quiet American, Brighton Rock, The End of the Affair, and The Third Man. This documentary weaves Greene's novels and movies into the story of his life: the struggle between good and evil, love and betrayal; it reveals an extraordinary man who travelled the globe to escape the boredom of ordinary existence and became a writer addicted to danger. This film is an unforgettable journey in search of Graham Greene's most elusive character: himself.

Prospero, Duke of Milan, usurped and exiled by his own brother, holds sway over an enchanted island.

When Prospero raises a storm to wreck this perfidious brother and his confederates on the island, his long contemplated revenge at last seems within reach.

Recorded live from the Shakespeare Globe Theatre. Peter Simple as Nathan Amzi, Sir Hugh Evans as Gareth Armstrong, Abraham Slender as William Belchambers and directed by Dominic Dromgoole. Imagining that Mistress Ford and Mistress Page have each fallen for him, the fat knight Sir John Falstaff decides to seduce them both, as much for their husbands' money as for their personal charms. Wise to the old rogue's tricks, the women turn the tables on him with a series of humiliating assignations and a very damp, extremely smelly laundry basket. Featuring many characters from Henry IV Parts I and II, Shakespeare's brilliantly constructed farce, which gave birth to a tradition that reaches down to the modern TV sitcom, returns to delight the audience.

In the third in a trilogy of films adapting the enduringly popular masterpiece The Hobbit, by JRR Tolkien, this brings to an epic conclusion the adventures of Bilbo Baggins, Thorin Oakenshield and the company of dwarves. Having reclaimed their homeland from the Dragon Smaug, the company has unwittingly unleashed a deadly force into the world. Enraged, Smaug rains his fiery wrath down upon the defenceless men, women and children of Lake-town. Obsessed above all else with his reclaimed treasure, Thorin sacrifices friendship and honour to hoard it as Bilbo's frantic attempts to make him see reason drive the Hobbit towards a desperate and dangerous choice. But there are even greater dangers ahead. Unseen by any but the Wizard Gandalf, the great enemy Sauron has sent forth legions of Orcs in a stealth attack upon the Lonely Mountain. As darkness converges on their escalating conflict, the races of Dwarves, Elves and Men must decide - unite or be destroyed. Bilbo finds himself fighting for his life and the lives of his friends in the epic Battle of the Five Armies, as the future of Middle-earth hangs in the balance.
