4. ROSE
Ron Prosser (West Sussex)
Sophie (Juliet McCrimmon) visits her grandmother, Rose (Pat Smith), now living in an old people's home in the country, but apparently unable to communicate. Sophie is soon to be married, so hopes that her grandmother might be able to be there. Sophie's mother has given her a memento from Rose's past ...

5. THE OLYMPIC MUSEUM
Richard Lewendon (Glos)
This is a fascinating documentary about the modern Olympic movement since 1896 and its creator, Pierre de Coubertin, and the Museum which has been built in Lausanne to house its archives. There is also footage of as much material as has been traced, both on film and on video, all of which is available to students, researchers, etc. This movie is the result of what must have been a phenomenal amount of research, both documentary and filmic, by the maker. The excellent commentary is by Alan Simpson.

6. PIANISSIMO
Mino Crocé and Guido Wilhelm (Italy)
This wonderful documentary (whose title is the musical term for 'very quietly') takes place in a home - originally founded and funded by the composer Verdi - for retired musicians. They still, apparently, practise and, on occasion, give performances to their colleagues - even going through unexpected traumas in the process! A fabulous collection of 'characters' - and several of them are in their nineties! 'Very quiet' they are NOT!!
