S33E05 - Ingrid Bergman in Her Own Words Air Date: 26 March 2018 21:45 -

Sorry, but right now we don't have any sources for this episode.

Widely regarded as one of the greatest actresses of the 20th century, Ingrid Bergman's talent was matched only by her incandescent screen presence. From her infamous performance as Ilsa in Casablanca, to her work with directors Alfred Hitchcock and Roberto Rossellini, her performances won her Oscars, Emmys and Golden Globes, as well as a place in Hollywood history.

Ingrid Bergman in her Own Words is a captivating documentary which paints a portrait of her life away from the film and the theatre. Combining access to Bergman's archives of home movie footage, private diaries and letters, read by Oscar-winning Swedish actress Alicia Vikander, with contributions from her children, including Isabella Rossellini, director Stig Bjorkman reveals Bergman's journey from Swedish schoolgirl to Hollywood icon, in a life lived to the full.

S33E06 - Habaneros: You Say You Want a Revolution? Part One Air Date: 21 April 2018 20:00 -

Sorry, but right now we don't have any sources for this episode.

Raul Castro has recently stepped down as president of Cuba, almost 60 years after his brother Fidel and a small band of bearded cigar-smoking guerrillas entered the capital Havana and changed the lives of theirpeople forever.

Using extraordinary and previously unseen archive footage, and shot over the past three years, Julien Temple's two-part film captures the mood of Havana and its people - the Habaneros - at a pivotal moment in time. They share their experience of life in this extraordinary city - the highs and lows, the exhilaration and the suffering. It's a rollercoaster ride from Spanish colony to republic to revolution to the precarious present. Fidel is dead, Obama's hand of friendship is withdrawn and as the US blockade continues to strangle the economy, Havana is literally falling apart.

S33E07 - Habaneros: You Say You Want a Revolution? Part Two Air Date: 22 April 2018 20:00 -

Sorry, but right now we don't have any sources for this episode.

Almost sixty years on, Castro's Cuban revolution continues to split world opinion as decisively as it did when that small band of bearded guerrillas first entered Havana.

In the second part of Julien Temple's film we hear from the citizens of this extraordinary city how these young revolutionaries put their dreams into practice. With access to remarkable archive footage, we see how they set about building a brave new socialist world on America's doorstep. Now with Obama gone, Trump in the White House, Fidel dead and his brother Raul stepping down from the presidency, Havana too is about to step into the unknown.

S34E01 - Rupert Everett: Born to be Wilde Air Date: 20 May 2018 21:30 -

Sorry, but right now we don't have any sources for this episode.

The story of Rupert Everett's ten-year quest to write, direct and star in his own film about the tragic last years of his hero Oscar Wilde, the great Irish writer imprisoned for loving another man. imagine... joins Everett five years on, halfway through his epic journey. The programme follows Everett from his onstage triumph playing Oscar in the West End, through numerous false starts and setbacks. As the years go by there are highs and lows, peppy optimism and lunatic serendipity.

S34E02 - Orhan Pamuk: A Strange Mind Air Date: 27 May 2018 21:30 -

Sorry, but right now we don't have any sources for this episode.

Turkey's best-known writer, the Nobel Prize-winning Orhan Pamuk, glories in his city of Istanbul, which in his lifetime has grown from two to fifteen million people. Despite political controversy which nearly forced him into exile, he continues to live in the city which feeds his novels. They evoke the lost world of his own eccentric family, explore Turkey's rich Ottoman past and engage with its teeming troubled present.

Poised between east and west, it is at once modern and traditional, secular and religious. An obsessive, outspoken and engaging man, Pamuk paces through the backstreets of Istanbul, showing Alan Yentob the places which have inspired his work - the Ottoman palace recreated in his best-selling murder mystery My Name Is Red, the burgeoning building sites and high rises which are the surprising setting for his recent books, and his extraordinary Museum of Innocence - a novel and a real museum in one.
