Howards End: 'Only connect'. This famous command is the catalyst which brings together two very different Edwardian families - the one passionate and progressive, the other hidebound by wealth and social status - with irreversible and devastating consequences. A dying woman's impulsive wish marks a turning point in the relationship between the cosmopolitan Schlegel sisters, Margaret and Helen, and the wealthy Wilcox family when Ruth Wilcox bequeaths her idyllic country house, Howards End, to Margaret. Convinced that he is acting in the best interests of his family, the patriarchal Henry Wilcox destroys his wife's 'unofficial' will. But, as the lonely, repressed Henry falls in love with Margaret, and Helen's wilful attacks on class and convention strike at the very heart of the Wilcox family, fate decrees that Henry must pay dearly for his deceit. Emma Thompson, Anthony Hopkins, Vanessa Redgrave and Helena Bonham Carter star in this acclaimed Merchant Ivory adaptation of E.M.Forster's Howards End, one of the greatest novels of the century.
Muhammed Ali - King Of The World: He called himself 'The Greatest' - and it was a description he merited. Cassius Clay (renamed Muhammad Ali after his controversial conversion to Islam) was, quite simply, the greatest boxer of the twentieth century, a sportsman who overcame the traumas of his childhood to make his mark in the ring through an awesome combination of showmanship and superb technical grace. Climaxing in his crucial 1964 world title fight against Sonny Liston, King Of The World traces Ali's meteoric rise to fame through the story of his early years - his struggle against racial prejudice, his friendship with black activist Malcolm X, his determination to take on the reigning giants of the boxing world and be 'The Greatest'. King Of The World is a must for both boxing fans and lovers of compelling true life drama - an unforgettable portrait of a sporting legend.
James Dean - Race With Destiny: The gripping story of James Dean's rise to fame, his romantic entanglements and his fatal desire for fast cars that led to his untimely death.
Bloodlines: On the night of 7th November 1974, Lord Lucan mysteriously disappeared following the murder of his children's nanny. Was it murder by mistake? This film follows the discoveries of tenacious reporters.
Molokai: Hawaii, 1872. The British and American's compete for influence and power in the Pacific island of Hawaii. Off the cost of Hawaii is Molokai, a small island, where lepers are abondoned in exile. It is a society based on the survival of the fittest. Molokai is out of control with food scarce or non-existent and children being led into prostitution and slavery. The responsibility for the leper's welfare rests with Molokai's Chief Administrator and Hawaii's Prime Minister, Bishop and Chief Priest who realise that action is required before the Molokai scandal weakens Hawaii's power with America and England. This is the true story of how Father Damien shames the cynical establishment into action and brings compassion and dignity to Molokai, against all the odds.
