Watch out for Orson Welles in a marvellous cameo as Cardinal Wolsey. The film won 6 Oscars. find out more...

Although teetering at times dangerously close to Ken Russell, the visual daring and pure imagination of every image leave it as an elegiac farewell to an find out more...

Claudius (Jacobi) is Tiberius Claudius Nero Germanicus, grandson of Mark Antony, who bears witness to the ruthless ambition, shocking debauchery and murderous intrigue of his remarkable family. For the most part he escapes their evil scheming by virtue of a stutter and limp that mark him as a fool. A remarkable, ground-breaking series, with towering per find out more...

Tearjerking drama based on the young Ernest Hemingway's real life romance, the inspiration for his classic "A Farewell To Arms". As an 18-year-old soldier in WW1, love is the last thing on his mind, until a near-fatal injury puts his life in the hands of a beautiful, older nurse. Superb performances. find out more...

Epic, made for TV, serialisation of the life of Christ stretching to a bum-numbing six hours and featuring an impressively star-spangled cast. Aesthetically spectacular and emotionally gutsy enough to entertain even the most cynical of non-believers. Continued on 7813. find out more...
