Becket by Peter Glenville( visu )
2 editions published between 1964 and 2007 in English and held by 1,495 libraries worldwide
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

That kind of girl ( visu )
3 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 4 libraries worldwide
In 1960s London, a beautiful continental au pair finds herself wrestling with the affections of an earnest peace-protester, a dashing young toff and a roguish older man. But fun and freedom turn to shame and despair when she finds that her naivety has put her lovers, and their partners - including the well-meaning Janet (played by Big Zapper's Linda Marlowe, in her first role) - at risk. Stylishly shot in crisp black and white, and set against a backdrop of smoky jazz clubs, "Ban the Bomb" marches, and evocative London locations, this finely tuned cautionary tale was the directorial debut of Gerry O'Hara
Doctor Who. the original BBC television soundtrack ( Sound Recording )
1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 3 libraries worldwide
"The TARDIS materialises in Paris in 1572, a time of great danger and religious strife. Whilst the Doctor pays a visit to a famous apothecary, Carles Preslin, Steven is befriended by a group of Protestants who come from the household of Admiral de Coligny. Meanwhile the Catholic Queen Mother, Catherine de Medici, aided by the hated dignitary the Abbot of Amboise, is hatching a plot to kill all French Protestants--starting with de Coligny. Worryingly for Steven, the Abbot bears an uncanny resemblance to the Doctor. And when the plot fails and the Abbot is condemned to death, he is even more alarmed. Was that the Doctor being killed? Or does the Abbot just look like him?"

2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 3 libraries worldwide
Permissive: When Suzy arrives in London to visit an old school friend, she is unwittingly plunged into the ruthless world of the 'groupie'. Fueled by sex, drugs and jealousy, her new lifestyle fosters in her a cold, cynical instinct for survival. But tragedy is never far away. With its effective blend of gritty location work, brooding flash-forward devices, and a soundtrack by cult acid folk and prog rock legends Comus, Forever More- who also star- and Titus Groan, Permissive is a dark British counter-cultural artefact that's shot through with grim authenticity
