This film is a true inspiration. The level of patience and care that has gone into capturing these stunning images in the frozen wastes of the Antarctic, way back in the early days of cinematography - 1912, is amazing.

Genre: Documentary

Part of the thrill watching Herbert Ponting's extraordinary record of Captain Scott's doomed race to the South Pole is knowing that its original audiences must have been watching at least some of these sights on film for the first time: killer whales, their dorsal fins menacing up from the sea; querulous penguins; fearsome crystal cliffs of ice. Ponting was the expedition's official photographer, and the BFI has spent years beautifully restoring his footage – which he edited into this silent feature film in 1924.

They say it can be seen from space. They say it over two thousand years, and it protects the northern border of China for six thousand miles. The entire world considers it a symbol of China. That these words - the truth, and that - a legend? What does this gigantic structure has to say about their builder? And what is her true story?

Louis Armstrong's tenure as second cornetist to the great King Oliver is one of jazz history's legendary apprenticeships, on par with the one Miles Davis served with Charlie Parker or Stephane Grappelli's with Django Reinhardt. Sadly, only a handful of recordings survive from this formative period in Armstrong's career. This LP features 18 of King Oliver's 1923 recordings with Armstrong, as well as a bonus appendix consisting of seven tracks recorded in 1924 by the Red Onion Jazz Babies under Armstrong's sole leadership (and featuring, on one number, a very young Alberta Hunter). The performances are as red-hot as you'd expect, and include two King Oliver and Jelly Roll Morton duets.
