The depiction of the NHS on TV shows how much we love it | Marcus Prince

10 May 2011 3:45 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

From the stuffed shirts of Doctor in the House to the anarchic humour of Green Wing, television continues to explore the bond between the NHS and the public, writes Marcus Prince

As this government is rapidly finding out, you mess with the NHS at your peril. As British as fish and chips, television producers have long been wise to exploiting the special place this institution holds in the affections of the nation. Was this perhaps why when ITV brought us Harley Street (2008), a series set among the high flyers of private medicine, the British public gave it the thumbs down. Doomed to fail precisely because it could not exploit the goodwill we extend to the NHS and the good doctors, nurses and surgeons who work within its ranks. To generations of the viewing public brought up on Casualty, practising medicine for profit was simply anathema.

The top 10 Oscars books | Peter Bradshaw

24 February 2011 9:02 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

From red-carpet thrillers to insider accounts, the Guardian's film critic hands out his gongs to the best Oscars literature out there

Partly because Academy Award madness is almost upon us, partly because like all former PhD students I love a good reading list, and partly out of sheer nerdiness, I have compiled an arbitrary list of the top 10 Oscar-related books. This has involved the incidental pleasure of hanging out in the Humanities One reading room of the British Library, and also in the library of the excellent and under-appreciated Cinema Museum in Kennington, south London.

1) Robert Osborne – 80 Years of the Oscar: The Official History of the Academy Awards (2009)

A hefty, celebratory, coffee-table slab of a book, packed with stats and pictures like a book about sport. Very much the approved, authorised version.

2) Mason Wiley and Damien Bona – Inside Oscar: The Unofficial History of the Academy Awards (1977)

Notionally "unofficial" but in »
