Abstract: Perhaps his most famous film, 'La Dolce Vita' slices into the decadent amoral core of Roman society with 'Fellini's' trademark attention to detail and spectacular photography. Marcello Mastroianni plays a gossip columnist ('the term 'paparazzi' derives from a character in the film') who aspires to be a more serious writer but knows he will never be, because like society, he is fascinated by the decadent hedonistic pursuits which are seemingly everywhere. The Vatican was appalled by the film, but the public adored it relishing the images 'Fellini' fed them, most notably perhaps the now infamous scene of 'Mastroianni 'and 'Anita Ekberg' frolicking in the Trevi Fountain. This is a spectacular morality play which has lost none of it's relevance in today's celebrity obsessed world. 'La Dolce Vita' won the Canne Palm d'Or in 1960, the 1962 Oscar for Best Costume Design as well as picking up nominations for Best Director, Best Screenplay and Best Art Direction.

Abstract: A ballet originally choreographed in 1890. Good fairies bestow gifts on the infant princess Aurora, but the uninvited evil fairy, Carabosse, arrives and puts a curse on the child - one day she will prick her finger on a spindle and die. The Lilac Fairy then moderates this to a promise that she will merely fall into a deep sleep for 100 years and be awakened by a prince's kiss. At the princess's 16th birthday celebration, a disguised Carabosse gives her a bouquet with a spindle hidden, and Aurora pricks her finger. The Lilac Fairy puts the whole kingdom to sleep along with Aurora. One hundred years later, Prince Florimund falls in love with the Lilac Fairy's image of Aurora, and battles Carabosse's creatures and other obstacles to reach the princess and break the spell. Finally, the entire court assembles for the wedding celebration.

Abstract: Michael Palin undertakes his most challenging journey yet in this BBC travel series, across the Himalayas, the greatest mountain range on earth, made up of a virtually unbroken wall of rock stretching 1800 miles from the borders of Afghanistan to south-west China. Along his journey Michael Palin encounters extremes of wealth and poverty, altitude and freezing cold, and meets, amongst many others, the Dalai Lama, the Bhutanese Royal Family and the once-feared head hunting tribe of the Konyak. His travels take him through Afghanistan, across India to the feared 'Death Zone' near the base of Mount Everest, and then on to the Bhutanese capital before finally arriving in the Bay of Bengal.
