Night and Day

To celebrate Arena's 40th anniversary, a new film made entirely from its own archive, evoking the one experience common to all - the 24-hour cycle from dawn to dusk to dawn again.

In 2015, Arena celebrates its 40th anniversary, which makes it the longest-running arts documentary strand in the world. To mark the occasion, it presents Night and Day, a new film made entirely from Arena's own unique archive. For four decades, Arena has addressed the arts and culture of the world, high and low - from TS Eliot to Amy Winehouse. The Arena archive is a treasure trove that provides a history of the last hundred years.

Featuring the Beatles, the Rolling Stones, Jack Nicholson and a host of other stars, Night and Day evokes the one experience common to everything on the planet - the 24-hour cycle from dawn to dusk to dawn again. Bringing the past into the present - 24 hours in 90 minutes in 40 years of Arena.
