          London's National Gallery, one of the world's foremost art institutions, is itself portrayed as a brilliant work of art in this, Frederick Wiseman's 39th documentary and counting. Wiseman listens raptly as a panoply of docents decode the great canvases of Da Vinci, Rembrandt, and... Turner; he visits with the museum's restorers as they use magnifying glasses, tiny eye-droppers, scalpels, and Q-tips to repair an infinitesimal chip; he attends administrative meetings in which senior executives do (polite) battle with younger ones who want the museum to become less stodgy and more welcoming to a larger cross-section of the public. But most of all, we experience the joy of spending time with the aforementioned masters as well as Vermeer and Caravaggio, Titian and Velzquez, Pissarro and Rubens, and listen to the connoisseurs who discourse upon the aesthetic, historical, religious and psychological underpinnings of these masterpieces.

          We all know about the late Queen Mum one of Britains most instantly recognisable figures. But few have even heard of the Queens mother-in-law, Princess Alice. And yet, the life story of Prince Philips mother almost defies belief. A great granddaughter of Queen Victoria, Prince Ph...ilips mother married into the Greek royal family only to see the Greek monarchy overthrown by revolution. Fleeing into exile, she suffered a severe nervous breakdown. She was locked away in mental hospitals and subjected to experimental treatments by psychiatrists including Sigmund Freud himself. The trauma had a shattering effect on Princess Alices marriage and led to a fractured childhood for her only son Prince Philip. Philips mother eventually fought her way back from mental illness, and became an unlikely hero of World War Two risking her life to hide a Jewish family from the Nazis. When her son married the future Queen Elizabeth in 1948, Alice turned down the option of a cosy royal life. Instead she chose to dedicate herself to working with the poor in Greece, gave away all her possessions and even founded her own religious order. Featuring exclusive interviews with family members and previously unseen archive footage, this film sheds new light on one of the royal familys most remarkable but little known personalities.

          Yotam Ottolenghi has transformed how we cook, eat and view Mediterranean food. Growing up in Jerusalem at the crossroads of conflicting cultures he developed a passion and a creative restlessness that inspired him to innovate and challenge traditional cooking conventions. Now, on... a journey that will take him from the sun soaked island of Corsica to the unrivalled beauty of Crete, Yotam travels to the jewels of the Mediterranean that have captured his imagination since childhood. And with cinematic camerawork and stunning food photography we go with him. In this series, Yotam will explore how the islands of the Mediterranean that have been invaded and traded through East and West have absorbed and adapted the foods of the many civilizations, empires and nations that have crossed their shores creating dishes that, although bearing testament to the history of the isles, are also extraordinarily local and unique. He will begin his journey exploring the wild, rugged beauty of Sardinia and Corsica, before heading down towards the Balearics and the almond covered isle of Mallorca, then on towards the complex island of Crete. Across the series Yotam will meet cutting edge chefs and local food heroes; experience the remarkable repertoire of food on the islands; and pick new and exciting flavours to blend with traditional and timeless classics. Beautifully photographed mouthwatering meals will be one of the benchmarks of the series. But this isnt just a succession of stunning recipes; we decode history on a plate. As well as a cultural and culinary exploration, this is also a personal journey of inspiration for him, providing the impetus for new flavours in his own recipes. Episode 1 - CORSICA Yotam travels to the stunning French island of Corsica, where he discovers how the lush green landscape, called the maquis, flavours and infuses the food, from charcuterie and olive oil to cheese and honey. He prepares a roasted fish with aromatic Corsican olive oil; Swiss chard and her

          All Governments Lie: Truth, Deception, and the Legacy of I.F. Stone is a theatrical documentary created by a team of Emmy Award-winning filmmakers, who subscribed to I. F. Stones newsletter in their teens. I. F. Stones Weekly inspired us then, and compels us now to tell the story... of a new wave of independent, investigative, adversarial journalists following in Stones footsteps. We hope this film will inspire the next generation of independent journalists, many of whom are now in college, to carry on I.F. Stones legacy of speaking truth to power. This film will change the way you look at the mainstream media or MSM. Giant media conglomerates are increasingly reluctant to investigate or criticize government policies particularly on defense, security and intelligence issues. They are ceding responsibility for holding governments and corporations accountable to the independent journalists and filmmakers who risk their careers, their freedom and their lives in war zones to expose the truth.With government deception rampant, and intrusion of state surveillance into private life never more egregious, independent voices like Glenn Greenwald, Jeremy Scahill, and Amy Goodman are crucially important. All three are inspired by the iconoclastic rebel journalist named I. F. Stone, whose fearless, independent reporting from 1953 to 1971 filled a tiny 4-page newsletter which he wrote, published, and carried to the mailbox every week. Stone is little known today, but All Governments Lie will reveal the profound influence hes had on contemporary independent journalists like Greenwald, Scahill, Goodman and others.
