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.

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.
