No Direction Home - Bob Dylan Part 2 Sep 27, 2005 Martin Scorsese delicately balances Dylan's internal world with signpost images from the external as he follows the newsworthy phenomenon of a 23-year-old star laden with expectations - from the old left to become a political activist, and from the media to articulate the concerns of America's youth. But Dylan was already on the move, finding a new musical vocabulary with which to capture the complexity of a seismic cultural shift, injecting a heightened sense of poetry into his writing and committing the crime of adding electricity to his music. By 1966 Dylan's personal world had become a never-ending journey of touring and press conferences - with no direction home.

Hank Williams - Honky Tonk Blues Feb 5, 2005 From Elvis to Norah Jones , Hank Williams 's songs have been recorded more often than those of any other country music writer. Dirt-poor and rail-thin, he blazed out of Alabama in the late 1940s with the fervour of a man whose days were numbered. By 25 he was country's first superstar - but four years later he was gone; an icon yet an enigma even to those who thought they knew him best. With family and friends, Arena examines the real Hank Williams.
