Film presenter Antonia Quirke speaks to key crew members working on the film and drama series that are defining modern entertainment.

In this episode Antonia meets a trio of fearless women that perform life-threatening stunts for the camera, as they break through windows, run through fires, hang from planes, crash cars and jump off buildings often in bikinis and tight clothing.

On three closed and top-secret film sets Antonia observes a dangerous stunt being performed, she meets one co-ordinator as she choreographs a traumatic battle scene and watches another stuntwoman, who doubled for Kate Winslet on Titanic, supervise a dramatic fall.

Determined and skilled, the women in this programme explain the skills both physical and mental required and disclose the social obstacles they have had to overcome and we discover their work is very much at the heart of what makes a film dramatic.

Producer: Stephen Garner.
