where internecine politics are the stuff of sensational headlines. RAG TALE chronicles a week in the life of a tabloid newspaper in contemporary London.

Inconceivable

Inconceivable Dr Jackson Charles Freeman (Colm Feore) takes ten patients per batch at his highly progressive and internationally acclaimed Las Vegas clinic. He cycles them efficiently to calendar match so they undergo more or less the same procedure at the same time. Nine months previous to the cycle under investigation at a Los Angeles Arbitration, the ART guru may wish he hadn't taken such a personal interest in one particular female patient when it emerges that the inconceivable seems to have occurred – it would appear from photographic evidence that he may have fathered every child conceived during that cycle.

Intervention

INTERVENTION offers a fly-on-the-wall bitter-sweet glimpse of what goes on behind closed doors when an eclectic group of people drawn from all walks of life find themselves under one roof for twenty-eight days with one thing in common – addiction. Those who are affected or influenced rather than being "under the influence," suffer the consequences of addiction just as much as the addict being treated. INTERVENTION exposes the reality of that crazy world where disorders of dysfunction - the "3-Ds" (drink, drugs and depression) are dealt with.

The Song of the Little Road

The Song of the Little Road Satyajit Ray's masterpiece the Apu Trilogy is widely considered one of the most important works in cinema history. In 1992, Ray was awarded the Lifetime Achievement Oscar. But when film-preservationist David Sheppard volunteered to go to Bengal, he found the original negatives in a terrible state. "It's hard to think of another world-class filmmaker", says Sheppard, "whose oeuvre hangs by such a thin thread!" The Song of the Little Road tells the story of how a master's body of work came so close to disintegration, and why Ray's films move audiences so deeply across time and cultural boundaries. Three icons – director Martin Scorsese, producer Ismail Merchant, and music composer Ravi Shankar – illustrate stirringly what makes a masterpiece.
