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.

Leading journalists Maxine McKew, Ray Martin, Andrew Rule and Brisbane's Tony Koch talk about the pressure on reporters to censor themselves when reporting on black violence in Aboriginal communities.
