The final film by the great Anthony Mann (Winchester '73, El Cid) A Dandy in Aspic is a stylish and complex cold-war thriller starring Laurence Harvey (Room at the Top, The Manchurian Candidate) as a Russian double-agent working for British Intelligence who is assigned to track down and kill an unusual target. Falling between the outlandish exploits of James Bond and the dour realism of John le Carré's circus of spies , this paranoid thriller is a dark and refined affair, with a superb supporting cast headed by Mia Farrow (Rosemary s Baby, See No Evil) and Tom Courtenay (The Loneliness of the Long Distance Runner, Otley), wonderful cinematography by regular Powell and Pressburger cameraman Christopher Challis, and with a terrific score by Quincy Jones.

Bernard Manning was born in 1930 of Russian Jewish and Irish descent. He served in the Second World War. At one stage, just after the war, he was stationed at Spandau Prison Berlin, where he guarded the likes of Rudolph Hess. His show business career began in the 1950’s as a singer, before gradually introducing comedy in to his act. He first came to a wider public in the 1970’s in TV programmes such as ‘The Comedians’ and ‘The Wheeltappers and Shunters Social Club’. Pushing the boundaries of comedy beyond the norm, his humour was loved and disliked in equal measure. He swore and used adult language, which, be warned, appears on these recordings! It’s fair to say that his humour is considered very un-pc nowadays, but he always maintained that he was never targeted anyone in particular and his subject matter was scattered to anyone and everyone. He started and appeared for many years at his own club, The Embassy in Manchester, where some of this material was recorded. He died in 2007. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Bernard Manning.

Napoleon decisively defeated the Prussians in a fighting campaign that culminated at the Battle of Jena-Auerstedt on 14 October 1806. French forces under Napoleon occupied Prussia, pursuing the remnants of the shattered Prussian Army, and captured Berlin on October 25 1806, then moved all the way to East Prussia, Poland and the Russian frontier, where they fought an inconclusive battle against the Russians at Eylau in February 1807. Napoleon''s advance on the Russian frontier was briefly checked. Russian forces were crushed by Napoleon''s army at Friedland on June 14, 1807, and three days later Russia asked for a truce. By the Treaties of Tilsit in July 1807, France made peace with Russia and received half of Prussia''s territory, Jerome Bonaparte''s Kingdom of Westphalia, and the new Duchy of Warsaw. Napoleon was now master of all of western and central continental Europe, except for Spain, Portugal, Austria and several smaller countries.

Ernst Oppler (1867&#8211;1929) war ein namhafter impressionistischer Maler und Mitbegründer der Berliner Secession. Er zeichnete, radierte und malte Porträts, Interieurs und Landschaften &#8211; oft das Strandleben in holländischen Seebädern, worin er Max Liebermann ähnelte. Durch eine Vorstellung des Russischen Balletts für die Mitglieder der Secession 1909 wurde der Künstler zum begeisterten Chronisten des Bühnentanzes. Er zeichnete den Tanz nicht im Atelier, sondern bei Proben und Aufführungen in Berlin, Paris und London &#8211; mit beleuchtetem Zeichenstift. Ganz anders als Edgar Degas ging es Oppler nicht um namenlose, posierende Tänzerinnen, sondern um die Bewegung selbst, um die Ballette und die Stars der Ballets Russes wie Anna Pawlowa und Waslaw Nijinsky. Der opulent bebilderte und textlich fundierte Band erscheint zum 150. Geburtstag Ernst Opplers am 9. September 2017. Ernst Oppler was a renowned Impressionist painter and co-founder of the Berlin Secession. After attending a performance of the Russian Ballet in 1909, he became a fervent chronicler of stage dance. Unlike Edgar Degas, he was not interested in nameless, posing dancers, but rather in movement itself and the stars of the Ballets russes, such as Anna Pavlova and Vaslav Nijinsky. The richly illustrated volume will be published on the occasion of Oppler&#8217;s 150th birthday.
Berlin in den heissen Sommerwochen des Jahres 1961, kurz vor dem Mauerbau: Max Schmeling &#8211; desillusionierter Ex-Idealist, Ex-Drummer und Ex-Agent mit einem dunklen Geheimnis &#8211; betreibt im Westen der geteilten Stadt den Jazzclub »Leo&#8217;s Russian Tearoom«, in dem Musiker, Journalisten, Alt-Nazis und Geheimdienstler ein und aus gehen. Zwar hat Schmeling, der einst unter seinem Tarnnamen Günther Lüders in Moskau die interne Fahndungsliste des KGB anführte, längst mit seiner Vergangenheit abgeschlossen. Doch dann taucht überraschend seine ehemalige Geliebte, die Ballerina Katharina Roschenko, in der zum Zerreissen angespannten Stadt auf. Und plötzlich wiederholt sich, was er eigentlich hinter sich lassen wollte: Für Katharina, die Frau eines hohen KGB-Offiziers aus Moskau, setzt er nicht nur sein eigenes Leben, sondern auch das seiner Freunde aufs Spiel. Aber sind es wirklich seine Freunde? Wem kann er noch vertrauen, als er sich erneut zwischen den Fronten von KGB, CIA und BND wiederfindet &#8230;?
