what if it goes wrong? but it didn't. it all went perfectly. that's one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind. back in a hotel lounge on the mull of kintyre, ken and marjorie watched on a tiny black—and—white tv. a big cheer went up, when we actually got the pictures through. it was absolutely mind—blowing to watch neil armstrong and buzz aldrin cavorting about on the moon. it was something that i thought, oh, i would have liked to have done as well. we had no idea there were a film crew there watching us. while cynthia watched the sky, a film crew was watching her and herfriend felicity — a moment in time which has been used
in countless films and documentaries around the world ever since. man landing on the moon, for me, is one of the most fantastic achievements of all time. and for you to be part of it, i'm just so proud you're part of that story. you've got that sort of look of awe and wonder in your eyes. we just thought it was unbelievable, what we were seeing. we never thought we would see a man on the moon. a man on the moon? never. just a reminder of tonight's headlines. a pay rise above inflation for hundreds of thousands of public sector workers. the chancellor philip hammond refuses to rule out trying to bring down a borisjohnson government if it pushes for a no—deal brexit. the man who raped and murdered a 13—year—old girl to stop her exposing him as an abuser has been jailed for life.

to take us through this week's cinema releases is mark kermode. hello. hi. expect this week. we have tell it to the bees. we have the lion king. isn't life or animation? and varda by agnes — a film maker looks back on her life and career. let's start with tell it to the bees, adapted from a book by fiona shy which i confess i have not read. i know you have seen the film. —— have not read the book. she find yourself homeless, and this returning dr, played by anna paquin, offers a house as a housekeeper. this kind of story is seen through the eyes of the young son. in the beginning, there is a voiceover of what did he seek and what did he not see? he becomes prickly fastening by
the fact, there is high of bees, and he's really interested in the way in which the bees live together in their society and he is told by anna paquin's character, you tell your secret to the bees, which is really title comes from. the bees sort of seemed to serve a larger role which is both mirroring and it some cases actually moving on the story. here's actually moving on the story. here's a clip. oi, oi! get off! oh, it's on me! get it off me! stay still. no. we mustn't.
what did you do to the bees? no, nothing, i, erm... so... and this is the 505. so... and this is the 50s. it is a period drama but he do think it still has some relevance, because it talks about some relevance, because it talks about somebody tough subjects. it talks about homophobia, it talks about domestic abuse. it is so it talks about domestic abuse. it is so upfront about them. there are a couple of scenes, they made me wince because they are kind of tough. my problem is this. i didn't that it's very well—intentioned and i think it's solidly played, i'm not entirely sure on the screen the be metaphor works, because up to a point, there is this idea of the discussion, you're telling the discussion, you're telling the discussion to the bees, the hive mind. there are moments, however, in which the bees to start to play an
active part in the narrative in which i did think this is falling apart... it was quite peculiar at that point. the metaphor was good in the beginning, but then it was like, i don't know where this is going. when actually became part of the story, it was less successful. that said to my thing its heart is the right place and i think it is at least striving to tell a story and an adventurous way. i would rather watch something trying to do something and fail then just simply play it safe. i think some of the performances are not quite as great as they perhaps ought to be, i think is probably due with actors wrestling with accents which are not their own. i kind of wanted to be... i wanted to be better x neck there are individual moments on macro —— their
very stern but... she is aggressive and we don't mess with her. the lion king. why? why is it being remade. explain. i think the most obvious reason, disney's live action remakes are making a tonne of money. in the case of this, this is kind of built as live—action. it is not live—action. it is animated. the whole thing is done in a virtual reality environment in which the cameras are moving around in virtual reality but it is all computer—generated. it is photorealistic. you can create a photorealistic. you can create a photo real version of an antelope or a line in, or a photo real version of an antelope or a line in, ora lion photo real version of an antelope or a line in, or a lion cup. the only thing is, they look like real animals but they are talking in singing, andi animals but they are talking in singing, and i have a slight conceptual problem with this. if you see a cartoon talking and singing, it is fine. you understand. if you see the stage production of the lion
king, your mind is filling the gaps. you cannot fault it technically. it is breathtaking. the environment is the best sort of realised environment on screen you can possibly imagine but it is...m environment on screen you can possibly imagine but it is... it is like a david attenborough documentary, they are all singing. it is just documentary, they are all singing. it isjust weird! i am personally an old fan of old animation. this is something very new and it is kind of ground—breaking. this is real cutting edge stuff, and is made by john favreau, who made thejungle book, which had a real human character. it is very strange. i am not convinced by it. people might think you would only like if you're obsessed with cinema! this is varda by agnes. is agnes varda's final for
him, looking at her extraordinary career. she is talking sometimes to an audience, sometimes she is talking to the camera, and so we get clips from her films. talking to the camera, and so we get clips from herfilms. we get encounters of people who remember working with her, and how tough she was. when you see the film, what comes across as a generosity of spirit and her enthusiasm for film, her enthusiasm for the medium and also her great love of beaches. and she says nothing about a beach is the opposite of a war, which is a phrase which wins me over. here's a clip.
it is so enchanting come and i did not actually expected to be enchanting, but there's something really... did you think it was going to be hard work and sort of?|j thought you would have to be sort of super knowledgeable about her work to get some thing out of it, and you don't have to become a because i am not. and she is delightful to listen to. it makes you, the robert de niro film, she says, it was a flop and i did not matter because i got robert de niro fora did not matter because i got robert de niro for a day x neck it is
inspiration and sharing —— i got robert de niro for a day! i love the fa ct robert de niro for a day! i love the fact she robert de niro for a day! i love the fa ct she loves robert de niro for a day! i love the fact she loves cinema but she loves the audience engaging with the cinema. she does these are installations, herfinalfilm, cinema. she does these are installations, her final film, and what you get from this is a portion of somebody, her enthusiasm, her intelligence, which can empathy for some and thought the film had great left in it. i thought it was really charming. it is a best all mac delight. best out? i really like only you. i thought she has done a greatjob of only you. i thought she has done a great job of telling only you. i thought she has done a greatjob of telling this story. the woman thinks their relationship is going to be out of balance, out of sync, but he is the one who thinks, isaac wishes start a family. what happens when something which is an idea turns into a demand? i think it is brilliant. i love the
