Telling stories that matter - Body Matters, a series of programmes on BBC One Wales looking at our relationships with our bodies. Connie Fisher won't go out without make-up. For her and many women in Wales, putting on her face is part of her daily routine. The average woman spends two years of her life putting on an estimated £12,000 worth of cosmetics. Connie asks why she and countless other women do it - and who they are doing it for. Is it to find a mate, is it insecurity or is it pressure from society? While Connie investigates women's commitment to make-up, a group of football boys find out how hard it is to put on the perfect mascara.
Reissue with the latest 24bit remastering. Features original cover artwork. Comes with a descripton in Japanese. A sublime little set all the way through – an early 60s date from the west coast scene – and one that was almost as important to that side of the country as the Verve bossa records were to New York! Bud Shank's in the lead on alto sax – no flute at all this time around – blowing sharp and soulfully, in a way that's even more deft than most of his other albums! But the equal star here is the young Clare Fischer – who plays piano in the group, and also contributed a host of original tunes to the set – fresh numbers that are way different than the usual "bossa-ized" standards, or American remakes of Brazilian classics. Ralph Pena is a key member of the group on bass – and Larry Bunker plays some vibes as well. Titles include "Joao", "Pensativa", "Samba Guapo", "Samba Da Borboleta", and "Que Mais?".
A fairy tale grounded in poignant reality, the magnificent, Manhattan-set The Fisher King, by Terry Gilliam, features Jeff Bridges and Robin Williams in two of their most brilliant roles. Bridges plays a former radio shock jock reconstructing his life after a scandal, and Williams is a homeless man on a quest for the Holy Grail—which he believes to be hidden somewhere on the Upper East Side. Unknowingly linked by their pasts, the two men aid each other on a fanciful journey to discovering their own humanity. This singular American odyssey features a witty script by Richard LaGravenese, evocative cinematography by Roger Pratt, and superb supporting performances by Amanda Plummer and an Oscar-winning Mercedes Ruehl, all harnessed by Gilliam into a compassionate, funny modern-day myth.
