Season 1988, Episode 01 Woody Guthrie

Jan 8, 1988

Woody Guthrie Jan 8, 1988 Woody Guthrie was born into a family made rich by the Oklahoma oil boom. But by the time he was eight years old, his mother was in an insane asylum and his father had lost every penny. His personal life was a catalogue of tragedy and disease, yet he had a vision that inspired two generations of Americans. The dustiest of the Dust Bowlers, Guthrie made his own life into a myth. He appointed himself spokesman for the poor and oppressed and through his songs turned their life into his own.This classic film is full of the songs of Woody Guthrie and contains rare footage of him performing. Guthrie's story is told in his own words and includes extended interviews with friends and family.

The Dandy-Beano Story Jan 15, 1988 Arena presents, on the occasion of their 50th anniversaries, a tribute to those great British institutions, the Beano and the Dandy.In their pages, the Softie has fought an unending losing battle against the likes of Dennis the Menace and Minnie the Minx, and the cow pie and the slap-up feed remain the just rewards for good behaviour.Arena visits Dundee in Scotland, where the current editors give their rendition of 'The Lost Highway' to the strumming of the Beano guitar. The film also includes such stalwart fans as the acerbic Steve Bell on the sources of his inspiration, Joan Armatrading, who not only wrote a song about the Beano but actually guest-starred in a strip, and leading young fogey A. N. Wilson on his admiration for Desperate Dan.
