Episode 5 of 6
In the closing days of 1999, British film producer David Puttnam, with broadcaster and author Brian Sibley, presented a major series for Radio 2 to mark the first one hundred years of popular film.
Since its initial broadcast, some contributors have moved on to pastures new, others have left us for the great movie studio in the sky; but what they had to say is still relevant to the story of cinema.
Next week, David and Brian will be bringing the story right up to date. But for now, sit back, dim the lights and open the popcorn because our main feature is about to begin.
This programme considers the British film industry. Contributors include: Sir Dirk Bogarde, Michael Winner, Michael Caine, Richard Attenborough, Richard Curtis and James Bond director Michael Apted.
