Wait for Me

In 1985, a young man from a well-to-do family took a bicycle trip across southern Europe, wandered into Bangladesh, traveled through India, and vanished while hiking in the rugged foothills of the Himalayas. He was never seen or heard from again.

“Wait For Me” is the story of a mother?s spiritual and emotional search for her son?a ceaseless emotional trek, propelled by an unconditional love and an unwavering belief that he may still be alive.

?Death Of A Princess?

It was perhaps the most controversial film in the history of public television — the story of Saudi?Princess Misha’al bint Fahd?who was publicly executed for committing adultery.

Death of a Princess, a modest British television documentary, turned out to be?the most expensive film ever made. It cost perhaps a billion pounds and this was in 1980 when that kind of money could buy your three or four aircraft carriers. The piece, made for British television, tells the story of a nineteen-year-old Saudi girl, Misha?al who seduces a Saudi teen, has three weeks of, relations, and who was then shot in a carpark in an?ad hoc?execution, moments before the boy was dispatched with a sword (in what seems to have been a deliberately botched beheading).

So why should a film which was made in 1980, with production values that were very much late 1970s, and a soundtrack from Vangelis, have cost so much? Well, it cost so much for the very simple reason that it led to one of the biggest diplomatic spats?since the Second World War. The Saudi government had an?epileptic hissy fit?expelled the British ambassador and ?took measures?. When the documentary arrived in the United States the Saudis bullied Mobil?into running ads against the screening, on PBS, of the film and so it went on in Australia, the Netherlands? Of course, the Saudi stance just added to the documentary?s notoriety and ultimately to its success.
