Saturday Night at the Movies is, I imagine, the longest running movie program in the nation, perhaps in the world. I have been involved with the series for 15 years. It has been an unequivocal pleasure and an honour to be part of such an incredible show. I remain in awe of Elwy Yost and the people who came before me; I remain in awe of the many people who worked alongside me.

Dangerous Games.

Spartacus is a sword and sandal epic about the uprising of slaves fighting for their freedom against a cruel system. It's a searing human drama that rises above spectacle, but what else would you expect from director Stanley Kubrick?  A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum is also about a slave striving for freedom, but this slave, Pseudolus, would rather con than fight, and its less about an uprising than it is uproarious PLUS its a musical - but what else would you expect from the classic writings of Titus Maccius Plautus?
