 26 June 2012: 

Film Noir duo Clute and Edwards Out of the Past take a deep and meaningful look at The Killing, directed by Stanley Kubrick - and it's compared with Quentin Tarantino’s Reservoir Dogs – in the filming techniques, plot and narrative construction. Kubrick's careful composition of every shot shows his deep sympathy for noir tradition but to it he adds a non-linear narrative and omniscient voice-over and inventive sound design which guide the viewer through the non-linear tale. Is the most powerful force in this noir universe one of self-determination or fate?

And our cognitive abilities are further stimulated with the BBC's History of the Brain, Episode 7 is subtitled Mind the Gap and focuses on how the microscope allowed neurologists to detail the structure of brain cells. Sigmund Freud had hoped his gold chloride staining method would revolutionise brain research but in fact Camillo Golgi's La Reazione Nero ilver nitrate technique enabled brain scientists to see the cell composition more clearly.

And ending with a nice trip out on the boat - and doesn't she look great! Libby Purves from Yachting Monthly tells us how not to fret about mishaps.

24 April 2012:

Out of the Past film Noir reviewers Clute and Edwards discuss The Killers. Hemingway's 1927 short story is little more than a pretext and the film really asks the fundamental post-WWII question: in a world where every man bears scars from the fight, how and why does he keep fighting? Director Robert Siodmak's answer is seemingly the one given by Albert Camus in his essay The Myth of Sisyphus: At the moment a man accepts the burden of his existence ... he is greater than his destiny. Hear how Out of the Past relate this classic film noir to Greek philosophy and myth.

After which we pay a visit to the busy cabinets of Museum Victoria, as Dr Andi Horvath goes to watch an assortment of bees doing their thing around the comb.

27 March 2012:

Our favourite purveyors of film Noir - Clute and Edwards from Out of the Past - get to work on the underpinnings to Billy Wilder's 1950 masterwork Sunset Boulevard. There are mysterious deaths; a doomed male protagonist, and a femme fatale. Actually, it's more than noir - it's a self-conscious staging of the crime that is Hollywood.

After which we're off to Museum Victoria for a guided look at their rare books collection - and branching out to carefully tended apple trees - many varieties in one - with Radio New Zealand's This Way Up.

21 February 2012:

We're with the beguiling film genre of Noir, and one of the most prestigious of the genre - The Maltese Falcon. Noir reviewers Clute and Edwards discuss its literary genesis and plot development, as well as characterisation and innovative camera work. Also today we venture inside The Memory Palace with Nate DiMeo, who sets stories to music - and then we're at The Melbourne Planetarium, for a chat about the moon.
