Elvis And The Uss Arizona

Sunday 3 July 5:30 PM

Elvis And The USS Arizona tells the surprising story of how one of music’s biggest icons helped to establish a USS Arizona memorial in Pearl Harbour. In the late 1950s, the USS Arizona Memorial Commission was struggling to raise money for a permanent memorial to honor the 1,177 crewmen who lost their lives aboard the battleship on December 7, 1941. After a successful fundraising push, momentum had slowed, and though construction on the approved design was underway, only half of the necessary funds had been raised.

Recently honorably discharged from the U.S. Army and headed to Hawaii to begin filming Blue Hawaii, Elvis was presented by his manager to the idea of a benefit concert to support the memorial fund. He agreed without hesitation and on March 25, 1961, performed to a sold-out crowd at the Bloch arena on the naval base. Elvis’ concert would draw public attention to the plight and help galvanize efforts to finish the USS Arizona Memorial as it still stands today.

Napoleon: In The Name Of Art

Sunday 3 July 7:30 PM

While suffering the anguish of exile on the remote island of St. Helena, before his death, we read in his memoirs that Napoleon thought posterity would admire him not only for his battles, but for bringing culture and beauty to the people, for creating the state school system and the modern idea of a universal museum, owned by everyone, open to the common people.

It’s from this aspect of his life that NAPOLEON: IN THE NAME OF ART was born, a documentary featuring the Oscar® winner Jeremy Irons as a very special guide, produced by 3D Produzioni and Nexo Digital with the support of Intesa Sanpaolo Bank and Gallerie d’Italia. Based on a subject by Didi Gnocchi, who signed the screenplay with Matteo Moneta, NAPOLEON: IN THE NAME OF ART is directed by Giovanni Piscaglia with the original soundtrack of the composer and pianist Remo Anzovino.

Gone Fishing With Mortimer & Whitehouse

Saturday 23 July 8:30 PM 2 episodes

Lifelong friends and comedic royalty Paul Whitehouse and Bob Mortimer have more in common than just their love of laughter - on a more serious note, they have both suffered complex heart disease. Paul is an experienced fisherman, Bob a complete novice. Paul thought a tour of the country’s finest fishing spots might help Bob’s recovery, and along the way maybe they would learn something about each other. In this funny and poignant six-part series, we eavesdrop on their expedition as they reconnect with each other and share their personal experiences of life, while testing the parameters of true friendship. They also fish, and talk nonsense. A lot.\n\nOn soggy riverbanks, they candidly discuss everything from show business to solitude, relationships and romance, while trying to catch some of the most significant species of fish in the country. This is as much an insight into the hearts and minds of two of the UK’s best-loved comics as it is about capturing the extreme exhilaration and occasional monotony of one of the most popular pastimes in the UK.

Ep1 : While in Norfolk fishing for tench, Bob tries to impress Paul with his childhood fishing rod - and fails. They share nostalgia for their younger years and reveal how they recently came face to face with their own mortality. After a brief respite in a local brewery, they reluctantly camp down in yurts before fishing again the next day where the elusive tench seems to evade them until the very last minute.

Ep 2: Paul and Bob fish for the mighty barbel in Hay-on-Wye. Passing a graveyard, they muse about the future and chat to a local vicar about death, and their own funerals.
