Cosmopolitan Medieval Bled Tour is a personalized 2 hours walking tour in the full late medieval - early rennaisance knight appearance (with single handed sword, hunnic bow and arrows) on the lake shore ob Bled (on its eastern part), where view over the most of the sights is concentrated. These are: stunning mountain ranges, fairy tale image of the church on the island close enough to provide spectacular silhouette, medieval Castle looming on the cliff directly above the lake. Since I am taking part in the Bled Castle Medieval Performance Group, I am also expert on medieval history and culture, knights and castles.Beside of presenting elements of stunning natural and cultural sights, myths and legends, Bled was also the place of major historical events during the first and the second World War, summer residence of Yugoslav royal family and residence of communist president Josip Broz Tito,where he was forging the worlds third block of non-aligned countries during the Cold War period.
Noel Coward's celebration of the strength and humour of the British working class in times of crisis struck a resounding impact with viewing audiences when first released, and still does to this day. Chronicling the trials and tribulations of the Gibbons family from the end of World War One, Coward's anthem to British resilience became the most successful film of 1944. This Happy Breed was David Lean's first credit as a solo director and was the first in a succession of worldwide hits for him and his distinctive visual style. Both Robert Newton and Celia Johnson preside over the ups and downs of their family with great humour and patience, ably supported by John Mills and Stanley Holloway. This is a High Definition digital restoration from the original film elements.

The BFI presents three films by Japanese master director Yasujiro Ozu. Melodrama is not a word usually associated with Ozu's quietly poetic oeuvre but his post-war Early Spring (1956) and Tokyo Twilight (1957) combine darker elements with his idiosyncratic style to create powerful dramas. Also available for the first time on DVD in the UK is Ozu's rare silent Woman of Tokyo (1933), a tragic tale of misunderstood sacrifice. Extra features: Newly commissioned score for Woman of Tokyo by Ed Hughes Comprehensive booklet with newly commissioned essays and extensive film credits
