Chris' Film Club: Heat

We're bringing you a week of Michael Mann films, starting with his 1995 crime epic Heat. Al Pacino and Robert De Niro are a cop and criminal respectively, who go up against each other in a battle of brains and brawn. Val Kilmer, Ashley Judd, Tom Sizemore, Jon Voigt and Hank Azaria are just some of the excellent cast that make this film work.

Phil, Kate & Amisha with Future Source @Futuresourcer

Today's guests were Phil, Kate and Amisha from Future Source, who are part of a team of 14 visiting Moshi in Tanzania to help in multiple projects such as putting together Schools and visiting Orphanages.

In preparation for the expedition in February next year Future Source is hosting multiple fundraisers, including sponsored walks and a quiz night.

The Radio Verulam Film Guide: 9th October 2015

The show tonight was plagued with technical gremlins. Sadly these weren't metaphorical gremlins, they were actual Technical Gremlins, and they made Danny, Simon and Chris' afternoon a misery All the while that Simon and Danny were trying to do the Film Guide, Chris was desperately trying to get rid of them. Now, the dashing and rugged Chris is a pacifist, so didn't want to kill the gremlins. Instead he tried to catch them under a glass tumbler and chuck them out of the window. Chris managed this a couple of times, before being overpowered and tied to his chair.

This left Simon and Danny exposed to the full onslaught of the gremlins. Danny cowered behind his iPad and cried like a recently redundant onion slicer. Simon on the other hand, found himself revered as a god by the gremlins, who worship him because of his gremlin-like stature and intense body odour.

Ok, that was a lie, but Simon was in the studio to talk about the UK box office, new releases in the cinema, and his pick of films on TV for the coming week.
