Introduced by Angela Allen and Anthony Wall
This Arena documentary reveals the many parallels between the on and off-screen action. Narrated by John Hurt, the film follows members of the original crew - Guy Hamilton (assistant director) and Angela Allen (script) - as they take us to the original locations in Vienna, and let us relive the on-set dramas and improvisations that make The Third Man so authentic and so compelling.
The documentary pioneers projectionism, an innovative technique developed by director Fred Baker, projecting scenes from the feature directly onto the locations where they were filmed. They take the viewer deep inside the original images to meld Vienna with Greeneland, the heart of Graham Greene’s moral universe.
Executive Producer – Anthony Wall

The London Australian Film Society are dusting off their santa hats and cracking open the bottles of bubbly for a Christmas film, Aussie style.
Christmas time in Australia – a time for sunshine, family gatherings, prezzies, barbeques, peace and love, right? Well, not so much for this family….
It’s been a tough year for Joey. Not only is he coping with the loss of his father, he hates everything about his life – especially his mum’s simperingly nice new boyfriend and sadistic son who life’s intent is to make Joey’s an utter misery.
But when he has to share a shed during the Christmas family gathering with his flatulent great-grandfather, who’s fresh out of prison, he knows this is going to be the WORST CHRISTMAS EVER.
But things often don’t turn out the way you expect. And stinky old Albert has a few tricks up his sleeve.
If you love the Australian classic, The Castle (1997), this bonkers film is definitely for you!

It’s a summer’s morning in 1988 and Tory politician Robin Hesketh has returned home to the idyllic Cotswold house he shares with his wife of 30 years, Diana. But all is not as blissful as it seems. Diana has a stinking hangover, a fox is destroying the garden, and secrets are being dug up all over the place. As the day draws on, what starts as gentle ribbing and the familiar rhythms of marital scrapping quickly turns to blood-sport.
Don’t miss this witty and devastating portrait of the governing class, directed by Simon Godwin (NT Live: Antony & Cleopatra, Twelfth Night) and part of National Theatre Live’s 10th birthday season.
One of the most significant scientific breakthroughs in history, the discovery of CRISPR has made it possible to manipulate human DNA, paving the path to a future of great possibilities. The implications of this could mean the eradication of disease or, more controversially, the possibility of genetically pre-programmed children.
Breaking away from scientific jargon, Human Nature pieces together a complex account of bio-research for the layperson as compelling as a work of science-fiction. But whether the gene-editing powers of CRISPR (described as "a word processor for DNA") are used for good or evil, they’re reshaping the world as we know it. As we push past the boundaries of what it means to be human, Adam Bolt’s stunning work of science journalism reaches out to scientists, engineers, and people whose lives could benefit from CRISPR technology, and offers a wide-ranging look at the pros and cons of designing our futures.

Matthew Warchus directs Andrew Scott (Sherlock, Fleabag) in Noël Coward’s provocative comedy Present Laughter.
As he prepares to embark on an overseas tour, star actor Garry Essendine’s colourful life is in danger of spiralling out of control. Engulfed by an escalating identity crisis as his many and various relationships compete for his attention, Garry’s few remaining days at home are a chaotic whirlwind of love, sex, panic and soul-searching.
Captured live from The Old Vic in London, Present Laughter is a giddy and surprisingly modern reflection on fame, desire and loneliness.
Followed by a Q&A with Danny Garcia, Nick Reynolds, Simon Wells and Chris Salewicz
The first documentary to be produced about the founder and original leader of The Rolling Stones.
In the mid '60s, Brian Jones emerged as 'the face' and poster boy of the Bohemian Swingin’ London scene, topping the charts with The Rolling Stones and dating model/actress Anita Pallenberg.
However, his excessive lifestyle and his reputation as ' the original bad boy of Rock & Roll' was to cost him dearly. As the scene descended into the acid ridden year of 1967 so did Brian. Targeted by the authorities and media, he spiralled out of control losing both Anita and the respect of the Stones. Two years later, Brian was found at the bottom of his swimming pool, the verdict: death by misadventure.
During the last 50 years many theories have emerged, claiming that Brian was murdered and that it was covered up at high level, as this film discovers - the evidence for this is extremely compelling.
