The cocaine trade of the 70s and 80s had an indelible impact on Miami turning the once sleepy retirement community into one of the world's most glamorous and nefarious cities. In "Cocaine Cowboys" we hear from some of the dealers, killers et al about the effect Colombia's Medellin cartel's $20 billion business had on the city. In particular we hear about Griselda Blanco, the Godmother of the business, a vicious psychopath whose feats helped turn Miami into the murder capital of North America. find out more...

In a turbulent era of apartheid in South Africa, race riots in England and civil unrest in the Caribbean, the West Indian cricketers, led by the enigmatic Viv Richards, struck a wonderfully defiant blow at white prejudice and endeared themselves to the hearts of a generation; regardless of skin colour, nationality, culture, or indeed even a previous love of the ‘game’. Their gifts on the grounds, combined with a fearless spirit are a joy to behold in this excellent documentary. find out more...

In 1970, a young farmer named Michael Eavis opened his 150-acre farm to 1,500 people who paid one pound each to watch a handful of pop and folk stars perform all weekend long, and the Glastonbury Festival was born. Julien Temple has spent the past few years collecting footage from every single Glastonbury Festival, ranging from outtakes from the film Nicolas Roeg made about the 1971 event to amateur home videos collected from the attendees themselves.

Filmed in 1986 at a Maryland concert arena parking lot before a heavy metal show, this is an unvarnished, fascinating and Spinal Tap..esque anthropological study of American metal heads in their mid-'80s glory. A shed load of extras make up for the feature's 25 minute running time (though the bit with one now middle aged participant's exhaustive explanation of his record collection comes close to a cure for insomnia). find out more...

In 1965 Yash Pal Suri left India for the UK and on his arrival in England he bought two Super-8 cameras, two projectors and two reel to reel recorders. One set of equipment he sent to his family in India, the other he kept for himself and for 40 years he used it to share his new life abroad with those back home - images of snow, miniskirted ladies dancing bare-legged, the first trip to an English supermarket - his taped thoughts and observations.

When "I Think We're Alone Now" made 16-year-old Tiffany an overnight sensation in 1987, her future looked bright. Then her career pretty much stalled. Not that Jeff, 53, or Kelly, 34, care: the former believes Tiffany is his saviour, the latter that they are destined to be together. Both are clearly stalkers, but neither realises it: Jeff because he has Asperger's, intersex Kelly because he/she is deluded and desperate. Sad, and somewhat disturbing viewing, this remains a compelling piece of wor find out more...
