13:00 Down to Earth (Film) 1947
Terpsichore, the Greek Muse of the Dance, persuades "Mr Jordan" to send her to Earth to help Broadway producer Danny Miller stage his musical about the Nine Muses. She succeeds in bringing refinements to the show and is, naturally, given the starring role. But unsurprisingly, Broadway audiences are not ready for refinement and the show flops. Miller insists on restoring his original jazzed-up treatment and an understandably miffed Terpsichore asks Jordan's permission to return to Parnassus. But when Miller reveals that the gangster who backed the show will kill him if it flops, she agrees to stay on. Writers Edward Blum and Don Hartman ingeniously came up with an enjoyable screenplay using characters created by Harry Segall in his play Heaven Can Wait, which was turned into a successful film of the same name in 1943. Directed by Alexander Blum.
15:00 You'll Never Get Rich (Film) 1941
This was the first of a pair of movies in which Columbia's bosses teamed up Fred Astaire and Rita Hayworth. The story concerns Broadway choreographer Bob Curtis who acts as fall guy for philandering producer Martin Courtland. He pretends to be the lover of the boss's chorus-girl squeezes whenever Mrs Courtland gets suspicious. Things get messy for Bob when he's asked to stand in for Martin with chorine Sheila Winthrop, who's secretly got a thing for her dance instructor - Bob. Caught out, Bob joins the army but when the old show comes to the camp to boost the troops' morale, he spots an opportunity to make it up with Sheila in Sidney Lanfield's classic musical.
16:45 The Siege at Red River (Film) 1954
Rudolph Mate's lavish, Technicolor Civil War action film stars Van Johnson as Confederate agent James Faraday, who steals a Gatling gun prototype from the Yankees easily enough. But smuggling it South through enemy territory proves decidedly tricky, especially with detective Frank Kelso on his back, treacherous scout Brett Manning double-crossing him, and with nurse Nora Curtis to protect.
18:35 Chariots of Fire (Film) 1981
Hugh Hudson's Oscar-winning film goes back to the 1924 Paris Olympics, where Cambridge student Harold Abrahams and devout Christian Scot Eric Liddell represented Britain on the track. Hudson's Oscar and BAFTA-laden tale of commitment, integrity and sacrifice follows their lives and loves before the two come together in Paris and as they compete at the Olympics, where Liddell must overcome issues arising from his religion.
21:00 Vera Drake (Film) 2004
Mike Leigh's Oscar-nominated and BAFTA Award-winning film stars Imelda Staunton in the title role as a working class wife and mother in post-war London who makes ends meet by cleaning for the upper-class as well as caring for her elderly mother and invalid neighbour. But she also helps girls "in trouble", from the daughters of her employers to the local women who cannot afford another mouth to feed. Although abortion is illegal, Vera sees it as a service rather than a money-making venture and her shock when one of her abortions goes wrong and she is arrested is believably palpable. With a supporting cast including Jim Broadbent, Phil Davis and Heather Craney, this is one of Leigh's most stunning, moving films.
23:25 Tell Me Something (Film) 1999
Yang Yoon-hyun's Korean thriller sees a serial killer terrorising Seoul. Their trademark is to dismember the body, but leave a part of their previous victim mixed in with the remains. Disgraced detective Cho is assigned the case and finds the clues leading him to museum curator Su Yeon, whose beauty blinds men to her mysterious path. Fans of Se7en and Basic Instinct may not find the plot totally original but the stylised violence and an unfamiliar Seoul more than compensate.
01:50 Twisted (Film) 1985
Ashley Judd plays Jessica Shepherd, a cop with a dark secret in her past, one that leads her to drink and one night stands. But when her bedfellows start turning up dead - victims of a serial killer - and she's assigned to the case, she begins to wonder if her drunken blackouts hide something more terrifying. Philip Kaufman's thriller also stars Samuel L Jackson, Andy Garcia and David Strathairn.
