In this 2014 comedy, the christening of Marcos's second son will reunite the two friends after a separation of six years. The reencounter with Hanna will revive the flame of desire in Martin. His son, Pablo, also finds satisfaction in a hippy commune near the town where he grew up. Everything races inevitably towards the day of the ceremony: mothers who arrive unexpectedly from Spain, sons who turn up with their Swiss girlfriends, priests who sing flamenco, a Spanish banker who is trying to hide money in Zurich. The peaceful, everyday harmony of the little Swiss town is endangered by the new invasion of Spaniards.

Abel is the directorial debut from actor Diego Luna and it tells the story of a troubled ten-year-old child with an undefined personality disorder who takes on the role of his absent father within the family unit. Taking place over one week, when the child''s mother takes her son home from the local hospital in order to try and save him from being transferred to a psychiatric home in Mexico City, the film is a touching meditation on the trials of parenthood and the healing power of compassion. Abel's small, damaged family indulge his patriarchal fantasy and for a moment it seems that things might improve for them all, at least until the children's genuine father reappears on the scene and pushes the film to its nail-biting denouement.

Judith has been fortunate to coincide her travels with some of the many festivals around the world. She is also interested in learning about different beliefs. Throughout the world and for millennia, religious ceremonies and festivals have helped people deal with unexplained aspects of the natural world, and to cope with life's hardships. They also, very importantly, bring communities together. Using mostly her own photographs Judith will share her experiences of Nyepi in Bali, Oberammergau in Austria, the date fair in Morocco, and Diwali in India. She will also share a little of the religious practices of the Sikhs of India, the Amish of the USA, and the life of Buddha.

Judith Amey takes us to Irkutsk, a major city in Siberia with a fascinating history. A place of exile for intellectuals, artists, and nobles who revolted against Tsar Nicholas I in the early 19th century. Their influence is still very palpable in the city's architecture and aesthetics. It is close to Lake Baikal, the largest, deepest, and oldest freshwater lake in the world; home to more than 1,700 species of plants and animals, Next we visit Harbin, the biggest city in Northeast China, is now home to one of the four biggest ice and snow festivals in the world. You will marvel at the world record-sized snow sculptures, as well as ice buildings, palaces, monuments, and statues some 50 metres tall.

The North African Kingdom of Morocco is at the intersection of Europe and Africa, a gateway to two millennia of history. It is a world of colour, diversity and wonder, with rich traditions and heritage very much alive. At the crossroads of the Western world and the Islamic world, it is African, but European; influenced by many cultures but tolerant and true to its own ethos. The Romans, Phoenicians, French, and the British, have left their mark and yet Morocco keeps its own Berber language, music and lifestyle. Hear the stories of Moulay Ismail - the Bloodthirsty, Mohammad V who led his country to independence in 1955, and the woman who founded the oldest university in the world in 859.
