Television: Today's Pick - Hetty Wainthropp Investigates
Friday 28 November 1997
War Walks (8pm BBC2) Richard Holmes's party trick this week is to play a mounted dragoon as he visits the battlefield of Naseby - scene of the Royalists' Civil War defeat in 1645. Like Hastings and Bosworth, it seems to have been a fine thing, this time turning on Prince Rupert's rash decision to go off looking for booty when it all seemed in the bag. That and some superior cavalry tactics from a certain Oliver Cromwell.
The Film - 8 1/2 (1.25am C5) Was Federico Fellini a passing fashion? Maybe it's time to check out his famous autobiographical phantasmagoria from 1963, with Marcello Mastroianni as the movie director around whom the "circus" of cinema (a rather conventional metaphor) swirls. Mastroianni is at a health resort to find a treatment for an unspecified illness. He is fed up with his mistress (Sandra Milo), can't find the inspiration for a production he's about to start, and is hounded by would-be stars.
