A forgotten king of comedy Radio Times Guide to TV Comedy Reigning supreme for almost a decade as ITV's biggest comedian, Arthur Haynes was one of the most influential and popular comics that television has ever seen. His shows remained firmly in the top ten until his untimely death in 1966 robbed the world of a comedy genius. Lack of repeats ensured that subsequent generations were denied Haynes' comedic brilliance - until now. Featuring wickedly funny scripts from Alf Garnett creator Johnny Speight, they invariably drew on the familiar class antagonism which he would hone to perfection on Till Death Us Do Part. Haynes' robust working-class delivery was inspired - never more so than in the character of Hobo Haynes, a belligerent, heavily decorated tramp fond of recounting tales of patriotic bravery whilst being 'up to me neck in muck and bullets'.

Stephen King was once famously quoted as saying, I have seen the future of horror...his name is Clive Barker. That future was realised in 1987 with the release of Barker's directorial debut Hellraiser. Based on his own novella The Hellbound Heart, Barker's Hellraiser sees Larry (Andrew Robinson) and his wife Julia (Clare Higgins) move into their new home, unaware that something evil lurks beneath the floorboards of the dilapidated house - something that wants human blood... Introducing the world to the iconic Pinhead and his sadistic band of Cenobites, Hellraiser became an instant genre classic upon release and remains one of the most frighteningly original visions in horror.

A deserted street below Table Mountain. A six-year-old ballerina waits alone for her mother. Then an unmarked car approaches, and she is gone. With no trace of why she’s been abducted, suspicion falls on her divorced father, Captain Riedwaan. Powerless, he watches helplessly as the search for his daughter is called off. In desperation, Riedwaan turns to investigative journalist Dr Clare Hart, whose TV documentary about Cape Town’s missing young girls has made her something of a local celebrity. Clare has seen how aspiring gangsters in the Cape Flats ghetto prove their worth by tormenting children. And she knows that the odds of a victim’s survival worsen with each passing minute. 1.

Learn about the idea that everyone has 15 Minutes of Fame with iMinds insightful audio knowledge series. Commenting on the increasingly fleeting nature of celebrity, in 1968 artist Andy Warhol quipped: “In the future, everyone will be world-famous for 15 minutes”. In a twenty first-century world of reality TV and YouTube, it appears Warhol’s prediction has come true. The changing nature of celebrity over time is an interesting backdrop to today’s short-lived fame. In the Middle Ages, only the monarchy and high aristocracy could claim to have anything like what we would call fame today. But with the absence of mass communication, most people did not even know what the king looked like. The imprint of his head on coins did not need to bear any likeness to reality because representation of power was seen as more important than any recognition in appearance.
