Wat ik mij altijd afvraag hoe het documentaire makers lukt bv in oerwouden bepaalde diersoorten van dichtbij te filmen? Soms denk je dat ze er bovenop zitten of misschien flink inzoomen of zelfs met een afstandbediening de camera bedienen want als mens weet je dat wilde dieren zowel boven als ondergronds niet op nieuwsgierige mensen zitten te wachten.
quote:Imagine... Simon and Garfunkel: The harmony game
Arts series. In Jennifer Lebeau's film, Simon and Garfunkel: The Harmony Game, Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel talk openly and eloquently about an extraordinarily creative period in their career - the making of Bridge Over Troubled Water. The story behind what was to become their final album has long been shrouded in rock and roll mythology and is told in gripping detail in these rare interviews. Archive footage is used to reveal technical breakthroughs and the emotional feelings the two artists had for each other.
Morgen om 22:00 uur deel 2.quote:Arena broadcasts the UK television premiere of Martin Scorsese's portrait of the late George Harrison.
Scorsese traces Harrison's life from his beginnings in Liverpool to becoming a world-famous musician, philanthropist and filmmaker, weaving together interviews with George and his closest friends, photographs and archive footage including live performances - much of it previously unseen.
The result is a rare glimpse into the mind of one of the most talented artists of his generation.
Part one looks at George's early years in The Beatles - from their first gigs in Hamburg and the beginning of Beatlemania, through to his psychedelic phase and involvement in religion and Indian music.
The programme includes contributions from Sir Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, Yoko Ono, Eric Clapton, Sir George Martin and Phil Spector.
Leuk muziekavondje (achtergrond event.)quote:Recorded for the 40th anniversary of Abbey Road, the Beatles' final album, a journey through the classic and curious covers in the BBC archives.

Plus, a few 'magical' moments from Candy Flip, the Korean Kittens and Su Pollard.
Erg interessant; mooie beelden ook uit de begin tijdperk van het massale vliegen, wat eigenlijk ook weer wat minder is...quote:Documentary telling the story of how Pan American World Airways kickstarted the Jet Age and shrank the globe. Real-life 'Pan Am girls' recall a high-life of luxury and glamour; rubbing shoulders with celebrity passengers, international romances and having to wear the now infamous girdle. Stars of the Jet Age such as Robert Vaughn and Mary Quant remember the food, fashion and girls that made them regular Pan Am passengers.
Pan Am's success was largely due to its visionary founder Juan Trippe, who transformed a small mail carrier into a global airline, pioneered flights for the masses and helped create the Boeing 747 jumbo jet. Honor Blackman narrates the story of how Pan Am conquered the skies and left a legacy of affordable travel and a much smaller world.
