Joe and Sarah Marriot is a pair of European campers who have pitched their tent for a little R & R at a campsite in France. Miranda Richardson stars in Andrew Davies' glorious comedy about a group of Brits on holiday in France, and the sexual and emotional tensions simmering just below the surface.

The other families that have come to the site on holiday provide great comedy and plenty of people watching for the "perfect" Marriots. Of course, you'd expect hilarity from characters dubbed the Fitness Family, Mr. and Mrs. Topless, Fatty Granada, and the In-the-Trades. But the Marriots' enjoyment of observing the outside world turns inward when the entrance of Early Bird, a free-spirited female, shakes up their little nest.

A fondly remembered documentary-drama, and an example of the sort of superb production that was regularly transmitted on TV

Shoot to Kill is a four-hour drama documentary reconstruction of the events that led to the 1984–86 Stalker Inquiry into the shooting of six terrorist suspects in Northern Ireland in 1982 by a specialist unit of the Royal Ulster Constabulary (RUC), allegedly without warning (the so-called shoot-to-kill policy); the organised fabrication of false accounts of the events; and the difficulties created for the inquiry team in their investigation. 

The film, written by Michael Eaton and directed by Peter Kosminsky, was made for tv, and screened in two parts over successive nights in June 1990. However, the programme was not broadcast in Northern Ireland itself, a precaution that Ulster Television said reflected legal advice that it might prejudice future inquests on the deceased, which had been suspended. 

The programme was made with the co-operation of John Thorburn, Stalker's deputy with day-to-day responsibility on the inquiry, and was said to reveal significant new information about the underlying events and how the inquiry had progressed. 

Shoot to Kill was widely applauded by critics. It won the 1990 award for Best Single Drama from both the Royal Television Society and the Broadcasting Press Guild, and a nomination in that category for a BAFTA Award. The score was written by Rachel Portman.

A sequence of 25-minute programmes used to teach students the Open University course on Shakespeare that ran for 12 years. The programmes are: 

RECONSTRUCTING THE BANKSIDE THEATRES 

Professor Glynne Wickham looks at the latest proposals to reconstruct Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre near its original site in Southwark, examining the historical evidence for the construction of theatres in Shakespeare’s time, and discussing the effect of modern alterations to these designs on the authenticity of the project. Professor Wickham is then assisted by actor Robert Powell in examining the possible theatrical effects which could have been achieved in Shakespeare’s day, as well as getting an actor’s point of view of the problems presented by the original stage. The question of cost is discussed with the project’s organiser, Sam Wanamaker. 

THE TEMPEST, ACT IV 

"This presentation of Act IV--the Masque scene--of The Tempest provides the variety of drama suggested by the text: different kinds of speech and action, dance, music, song, pictorial effect; depth of thought, beauty, fright, and fun. The act shows two parts of the magical triumph of Prospero--the betrothal of Ferdinand and Miranda, and the defeat and punishment of Caliban, Stephano, and Trinculo." 

Presented by Brian Stone.

HENRY IV, PARTS ONE AND TWO: WORKSHOP ONE 

"... In this programme, director John Russell-Brown asks Timothy West (Falstaff) and Michael Thomas (Prince Hal) to try out some of [the] crucial scenes, and asks them to explore the ways in which the ebullient humor casts light on the darkest historical elements of the play." 

Cast 
Timothy West 
Michael Thomas 
David Ryall 
Miriam Karlin 

ANTONY AND CLEOPATRA WORKSHOP 

"... In this programme, director John Russell-Brown concentrates on one ... short scene, in which Antony (James Laurenson) takes his leave of Cleopatra (Gillian Barge) before going into battle with Caesar. Running alongside the moving poetry of farewell is the need to deal with the "business" of the text -- in this case, the donning of a suit of armoUr..."

TWELFTH NIGHT WORKSHOP 

"... a group of experienced Shakespearean actors first read through, and then rehearse, Act II, scene 3, one of the funniest scenes in the play. This rehearsal culminates in a runthrough of the scene, showing how the discoveries of the workshop are brought into the play."

HAMLET: WORKSHOPS ONE AND TWO 

1) "...The program investigates the question of Hamlet's character as director John Russell-Brown takes actor David Yelland through various interpretations of the role, working on some of Hamlet's key speeches and interactions with other characters and trying out various ways of presenting this complex character." 
2) "This program expands on the idea of Hamlet's character to bring the prince into dramatic relationship with other characters. The program looks at how far such interactions modify or support issues of character resolved in the first workshop, and how the actor playing this complex role relates the meaning of the famous soliloquies to the dynamic, political moments of the play."

KING LEAR: WORKSHOPS ONE AND TWO 

1) "... In this programme, director John Russell-Brown takes actor Julian Glover through Act II, scene 4, as far as to the storm scene. The central issue is Lear's madness; how can an actor convey it and at the same time be aware of the "reason in madness" so central to the meaning of the play? Answers to this can come only through detailed enactment and discussion of certain crucial moments." 
2) "... The program looks in detail at Act IV, scene 6, the storm scene, and at Lear's poignant re-encounter with the blind Gloucester, played by Basil Henson." 

Presented by Graham Martin. 

Cast 
Julian Glover 
Basil Henson 
James Laurenson

MEASURE FOR MEASURE: WORKSHOPS ONE AND TWO 

1) "... This programme concentrates on Act II, scene 2, in which Isabella (Jenny Agutter) comes to plead with Angelo (Michael Thomas) for her brother's life. Director John Brown asks what, and how much, each character can be said to reveal of themselves here. Through this highly focused rehearsal, it becomes possible to discover an Isabella far more passionate and far more complex than sometimes portrayed." 
2) "In Act III, scene 1, Isabella comes to tell her brother Claudio (David Yelland) that he must die, since she will not forfeit her chastity to save him. The emotional focus of this great scene is intense, and its poetry extremely complex and compressed. By working carefully through its most difficult moments, director John Russell-Brown examines the extent to which actors can convey this emotion through gestures and language."

Sunset Beach, the one-hour daytime drama from Aaron Spelling, premiered January 6, 1997. It was both Spelling's first daytime venture and the first new serial to hit the television airwaves in eight years. The show has developed a solid fan base that Soap Opera Digest called "remarkable for a newcomer" and it didn't take long for the show to become a cult hit here in The UK. Set in a small coastal California community, Sunset Beach made its mark on television by combining traditional daytime drama storytelling with the natural beauty of Southern California's beach locations and was supported by a talented and ethnically-diverse cast. TV Guide noted that "Sunset Beach had become a cult hit with growth potential" for the daytime serial viewer. This fact had become particularly true with teen viewers who enjoyed Sunset's suspenseful and quirky storylines like "Terror Island," a take-off on the popular Scream movies. Also popular was the storyline "Shock Wave," highly publicized earthquakes followed by a treacherous tsunami which caused mayhem at the beach. Sunset Beach also blended real-life news into its storyline, such as the Presidential scandals. Sunset Beach featured some of the most recognizable and popular stars on television as well as the hottest newcomers to daytime. They portrayed core family members and friends living in Sunset Beach who came from all walks of life-rich, poor, heroes, villains, lovers, friends and enemies. Families such as the Richards, the Deschanels, the Torres and the Cummings, were all interwoven, often coming together at the funky blues/rock club, The Deep, or at the cyber coffeehouse, Java Web. They worked as police officers, lifeguards, reporters, waiters, lawyers and restaurant owners.

A TV schools version of the play by William Shakespeare, filmed in the studio and on location in Venice. Originally broadcast in five episodes in the `Middle English' series. This DVD features both the original 5-part serial AND ALSO the 80-minute compilation. Both are subtly different edits, each featuring material not found in the other. 

The movie features Haydn Gwynne as Portia, Bob Peck as Shylock, Paul McGann as Bassanio, and Benjamin Whitrow as Antonio. The costumes are credible according to the time period, and the acting is outstanding. Bob Peck as Shylock and Haydn Gwynne as Portia offer particularly interesting performances. Antonio and Bassanio appear to have deep love for one another in the play; however, their relationship never appears to be anything more than strictly friendship-based because of Bassanio’s passionate performance for Portia.

Ashley Artus ... Launcelot 
Caroline Catz ... Jessica 
Haydn Gwynne ... Portia 
Victoria Hamilton ... Nerissa 
Scott Handy ... Lorenzo 
Paul McGann ... Bassanio
