              After serving his film apprenticeship his film apprenticeship at Pinewood Studios between 1946 and 1962, Paul Hitchcock left at the invitation of United Artists to work on five of their major productions until he was later head-hunted by Paramount Pictures to oversee their entire... international production arm. Subsequently as Head Of International Production for Warner Bros. for over twenty years, he oversaw scores of movies ranging from Gorillas In The Mist, Superman I & II, Batman (1989), Full Metal Jacket, Empire Of The Sun, Outland, Barry Lyndon, A Clockwork Orange, Firefox, Little Shop of Horrors to Greystoke. There were also films that never quite made it into production, such as David Lean's version of The Bounty and his ill-fated Nostromo, and a multi-million dollar biopic of Polish President Lech Wa sa which the studio believed would be the next Driving Miss Daisy. Later as an independent Producer and Executive Producer he helmed films such as First Knight, Mission Impossible I & II, The Saint, The Man in the Iron Mask, Phantom Of The Opera and Fred Claus. This is his inside story of these and many other Hollywood blockbusters! London-born Paul Hitchcock spent most of his childhood living near Pinewood Studios, and after a chance suggestion by one of his teachers to Paul's father, he joined the studio as a junior in their accounts department. Thus began a 50 plus year involvement in the movie business. Now semi-retired Paul lives in Berkshire with his wife Lidia and along with going to the movies, is a passionate golfer. Gareth Owen has authored and ghost-written 12 film-related books and biographies, including three with Sir Roger Moore. He is based at Pinewood Studios.

              Boron-based compounds have been utilized as ligands within transition metal complexes for many decades. The diversity of such compounds in terms of varying functional groups is truly exceptional. Boron compounds are of high interest due to the great potential to modify the substi...tuents around the boron center and to produce a broad range of structural motifs. The many different ways these compounds can coordinate or interact with transition metal centers is astonishing. Examples of transition metal complexes containing boron-based ligands include scorpionates, cluster-type borane- and carboranes, borates, and phosphine-stabilized borylene ligands. This Special Issue brings together a collection of articles focusing on recent developments in the aforementioned boron-based ligands. The articles reported in this book will provide the reader with an overview of the types of boron-based ligands which are currently being researched in groups around the world.
