Much of the location footage, filmed in the Arctic for this drama of Eskimo life, was lost in a plane crash. However, consistent with Ray's conception of cinema as a synthetic art apparent in his commitment to mise-en-scene, it was always intended that the important scenes would be filmed in a studio. Ray undertook considerable research into Eskimo life but as the groundwork on which a fiction, akin to a fable or morality play, was built. Despite the problem of dialogue that hovers between poetry (Ray's original intention) and pidgin, the first half is strong on quasi-documentary elements. The mundane fiction - Inuk's choice of a wife - is enlivened by moments drawing on the vitality of Eskimo life. Inuk is a loner amongst outsiders (in common with other Ray heroes) in a harsh utopia threatened by Western civilisation with its imposed laws and attendant technology represented by the trading post and the gun

This set, crackling with suspense and drama, includes ten of the most prominent examples of British filmmaking. Appointment with Venus: at the outbreak of WWII the British realize they can't prevent the invasion of the Channel Islands. However, someone realizes that a prize cow, Venus, is on the islands and the Nazis mustn't get hold of her. The wind cannot read: Love that was forbidden ... but could not be denied! Operation Amsterdam: during WWII, British commandos visit occupied Holland to keep a fortune in diamonds out of Nazi hands. Theirs is the glory: in 1944, British General Montgomery and his command were way north of the Allied line, and the Germans were holding them in that swampy position. The plan, put into operation on Sunday, September 14, 1944, was to drop two American Airborne divisions and the British First Airborne Division behind the German lines to capture the bridges which would open the way to the German plain. The day will dawn: horse race tipster and journalist Metcalf is picked for the job of foreign correspondent in Norway when Hitler invades Poland. Seven thunders: escaping British prisoners of war hide out in German occupied France. Unpublished story: journalists investigate German fifth columnists as London burns in the blitz.
