Hotel du Lac is an impeccably produced BBC television adaptation of Anita Brookner's Booker Prize-winning novel. Middle-aged writer Edith Hope has fled London and romantic disappointment to find sanctuary at a luxury hotel on a Swiss Lake, but finding no escape from her loneliness must eventually face her past. Edith is played with compassion by Anna Massey, her intellect and wit acting as a defence against her own failings, and support comes from a superb cast including Denholm Elliott, Googie Withers, Julia McKenzie, Patricia Hodge, Irene Handl and Barry Foster. Brookner's apparently slight but multi-layered tale is skilfully crafted by writer Christopher Hampton, who has with such films as Dangerous Liaisons (1988) and The Quiet American (2002) become a master of literary adaptation. Giles Foster's direction focuses on bringing the best from his cast, rather than attempting any sort of cinematic sweep, and Carl Davis' eloquent theme music makes the introspection all the more touching. Ultimately, though, it is Anna Massey's insightful central performance which makes Hotel du Lac such a memorable slice of television. On the DVD:Hotel du Lac is presented in the original TV broadcast 4:3 ratio with a very poor, extremely grainy and soft picture. The sound is reasonable mono, clear and free from distortion though lacking in dynamic range. The only extra, though one well worth having, is a serious and highly informative commentary from Giles, Hampton and producer Sue Birtwistle. --Gary S Dalkin

...The Great British Seaside resorts are not quite as popular as they were some decades ago; however, we have enjoyed numerous short British holiday breaks. Many holiday abroad because they love the sunshine; we (oddly enough) holiday in the UK because we like the changing seasons. A lot of the run of the mill hotels offering budget breaks and bargain weekends offer a decent service for a very...
Advantages: clean great location Disadvantages: night club opposite
...I decided I wanted to go away for the school half term. I had found a holiday park with a really good offer but ummed and arred and lost out on the deal.
So we decided to go for York. I searched the internet for a B & B and got a sale for Hampton By Hilton. We paid £299 for 4 nights for 2 adults and two children, which I thought was quite good. It advertised being two minutes away from the train...
Advantages: Great show, well presented, helping to rid our streets of awful offenders. Disadvantages: Some of the reconstructions are very upsetting and it's because they're all true :(
...Crimewatch UK is a BBC programme which is on roughly once a month and aims to bring light to the public criminals who are wanted and crimes that have been committed as well as making people aware again of events that may have happened a number of years ago and where the culprits have still not been found.
There have been a number of presenters over the years and one of them was Jill Dando who...
