Life Cinematic: Sir Sam Mendes

Stars of the cinema pick their favourite movie scenes.

We’re launching a new series exploring the art of the ‘perfect film’. ‘Picture Perfect’ will be a deep exploration of the craft of filmmaking with key names from in front of and behind the camera picking their favourite scenes from the history of cinema.

In each programme, leading directors and actors will select what they consider to be definitive examples of classic movie scenes – from the perfect long shot to a faultless car chase.

We’ll also be producing a series of “channel takeovers” with big film names curating favourite TV programmes and films from the archive.

The new Somethin’ Else programmes are a central part of the BBC’s new regular commitment to film programming across the year.
