Steamrolling Old Ireland

Hunter's Hotel 3

This is an urgent appeal to all those of you who love the Ireland of old, the land  of people who smiled and had time, sat around a fire sorting out the problems of the world, had hearty food in surroundings that hadn’t changed for many years.

The Nutritionist: Winter Blues

Light 1 - Hans Thoursie

The Social Network

Timberlake and Eisenberg in The Social Network

Very recent history makes its way onto the big screen with The Social Network, documenting the birth of Facebook. Too soon? Not at all. Good? Too good to be true, in fact.



Taylor Swift

The Swift rise of Taylor, Inc.

Taylor Swift is known for many things: her chart-topping hits, a long list of ex-boyfriends among them. Now, she's carving out a name for herself as a multi-million dollar powerhouse.
