Juliet Stevenson, the Patron of LAM Action, talks about the charity and the rare condition for which it provides support and research.
As a sequel to their ‘Grown Men’ version of 2014, Anthony and Ben Holden introduce a selection of poems which haunt and move a throng of eminent women, who explain their choices before reading the poems themselves. Hosted by Kate Mosse, with Imtiaz Dharker, Mariella Frostrup, Jude Kelly, Maureen Lipman, Edna O’Brien, Vanessa Redgrave, Elif Shafak and Juliet Stevenson. From Amnesty: Writing poetry – and responding to it – happens because people care. It’s our capacity for caring that underpins why we have human rights. Poems That Make Grown Women Cry is emblematic not just of the human struggle to make a difference, but of ongoing efforts for gender equality. It is a celebration of poetry's age-old power to kindle aspirations to truth, justice and freedom. Someone who very much wanted to contribute to this anthology but couldn’t is Chelsea Manning, an American soldier and whistleblower. She is serving a 35-year sentence in military prison for leaking classified US government documents to the WikiLeaks website, publicly revealing that the US army, the CIA and Iraqi and Afghan forces committed human rights violations. We want Chelsea to walk free. Please take action for Chelsea at https://www.amnesty.org.uk/iar https://www.amnesty.org.uk/
Deadly Impact - 1984 - VHS trailer starring Bo Svenson and Fred Williamson
Starring Robert Webb ("Peep Show", "That Mitchell and Webb Look"), Rufus Hound ("Celebrity Juice", "Argumental") and Lucy Punch (Bad Teacher, You Will Meet A Tall Dark Stranger), THE WEDDING VIDEO is a comedy set in the cut throat world of English society weddings. THE WEDDING VIDEO is directed by Nigel Cole (Made in Dagenham, Calendar Girls), written by Tim Firth (Confessions of a Shopaholic, Calendar Girls), and produced by James Gay -- Rees (Senna, Exit Through the Giftshop). Raif (Hound), a shambolic oaf with a unique sense of humour, is asked to be his brother Tim's (Webb) best man when he marries Saskia (Punch). To Raif's surprise, he finds his once-bohemian brother is marrying into Cheshire's most socially aspirant family. Saskia's grandmother, Patricia (Miriam Margolyes) would give Hyacinth Bucket a run for her money and mum Alex (Harriet Walker) has successfully married into life in the 'Cheshire Set' -- the English 'Beverley Hills'. Raif's present to the happy couple will be a video of their wedding. His film is our film -- the final edited version with music, live action, interviews - the works. Amidst the chaos of planning their big day and fending off unwanted help the couple begins to wonder 'whose wedding is it anyway?'
