Becket by Peter Glenville( visu )

Despite differences in rank and background, King Henry II and Thomas Becket are lifelong friends. The King is in constant conflict with the Church, which refuses to contribute financing to his wars in France, and jealously guards the tax-free status granted it by previous monarchs. When the Archbishop of Canterbury dies, Henry has a brilliant idea: rather than another pious cleric loyal to Rome, he will appoint his old friend, Thomas Becket--technically a deacon--to the post. Unfortunately, Becket takes the job seriously, holding devotion to God and the Church above his loyalty to the throne, or the person of its inhabitant. In opposition to Henry, he proves abler than his predecessors do, and the clash of two powerful personalities leads to destruction

There is a Cornish legend about a fisherman called Tom Bawcock and his cat Mowzer. Mowzer tells the story of one winter when the Great Storm-Cat came snarling and leaping at the harbor walls, so that no boat could go out to fish. With Christmas coming, and no food left in Mousehole, Tom and Mowzer set out in their boat to try and save the village. As they sail into the mountainous seas, Mowzer begins to sing like a siren. Her lullaby charms the Great Storm-Cat, who stops his raging and listens to her song, so that Tom can catch enough fish to feed the entire village. Ever since that day, the people of Mousehole have celebrated Christmas with a Festival of Lights, where they feast and sing in memory of brave Tom Bawcock."--Container
