*Film 1: Miles Davis: Birth of Cool image

*Film 1: Miles Davis: Birth of Cool (15)

Miles Davis: horn player, bandleader, innovator. Elegant, intellectual, vain. Callous, conflicted, controversial. Magnificent, mercurial. Genius. The very embodiment of cool. The man with a sound so beautiful it could break your heart. The central theme of Miles Davis's life was his restless determination to break boundaries and live life on his own terms. It made him a star. For the people who loved him most, it also made him incredibly difficult to live with.


Again and again, in music and in life, Miles broke with convention—and when he thought his work came to represent a new convention, he changed it again. Miles's bold disregard for tradition, his clarity of vision, his relentless drive, and constant thirst for new experiences made him an inspiring collaborator to fellow musicians and a cultural icon to generations of listeners. It made him an innovator in music—from bebop to “cool jazz,” modern quintets, orchestral music, jazz fusion, rock ’n’ roll, and even hip-hop. Featuring never-before-seen archival footage, studio outtakes, and rare photos, Miles Davis: Birth of the Cool tells the story of a truly singular talent and unpacks the man behind the horn.

*Film 1: Shadowing The Third Man

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

Film 1: Judy (12A)

Winter 1968 and showbiz legend Judy Garland arrives in Swinging London to perform in a sell-out run at The Talk of the Town. It is 30 years since she shot to global stardom in The Wizard of Oz, but if her voice has weakened, its dramatic intensity has only grown. As she prepares for the show, battles with management, charms musicians, and reminisces with friends and adoring fans, her wit and warmth shine through.


Even her dreams of romance seem undimmed as she embarks on a courtship with Mickey Deans, her soon-to-be fifth husband. And yet Judy is fragile.  After working for 45 of her 47 years, she is exhausted; haunted by memories of a childhood lost to Hollywood; and gripped by a desire to be back home with her kids.


Featuring some of her best-known songs, the film celebrates the voice, the capacity for love and the sheer pizzazz of “the world’s greatest entertainer”.

The completed film is a remarkably coherent account of the novel and successfully balances the larger backdrop - the seismic changes affecting the South at the time of the American Civil War with the more intimate story of Scarlett O'Hara (Leigh), a petulant belle wrecking havoc on the lives of others"

Hansard; noun

The official report of all parliamentary debates.


See two-time Olivier Award winners, Lindsay Duncan (Birdman, About Time) and Alex Jennings (The Lady in the Van, The Queen), in this brand-new play by Simon Wood, broadcast live from the National Theatre in London.


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.

Human Nature image

Human Nature

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.

Rolling Stone - Life and Death of Brian Jones image

Rolling Stone - Life and Death of Brian Jones (15)

Premiere

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.

The director’s fabled ‘touch’, here at its lightest, contributes to what is arguably Hollywood’s most exquisitely romantic depiction of the old central Europe. Perfect seasonal fare.

As the glinting steel and mirror-glass skyscrapers of London’s financial hub edge ever closer, the area surrounding Hoxton Street has been transformed by ‘luxury’ redevelopments and sky-high property prices. This traditional East London street, less than a mile from the City of London, has become the last bastion of the areas disadvantaged – a concentration of the aged, poor and dispossessed. Following its inhabitants over a four-year period, Zed Nelson’s debut feature-length documentary charts the toxic collision of gentrification, austerity and the nation’s slide into Brexit.
