Ewan Stewart (born 8 August 1957) is a Scottish film, television and stage actor. Stewart was born Andrew Ewan Stewart in Glasgow, and is the son of the late Scottish entertainer Andy Stewart. His mother Sheila is still alive and lives in Arbroath, Scotland. Stewart was educated at Edinburgh's Clifton Hall School and Merchiston Castle School from 1966-1974. He left Scotland to move to London in 1975 and started working in theatres as well as studying drama. Stewart's first television appearance was in an advertisement for Scottish "Bluebell" matches.

"Visionary director Nicolas Winding Refn's brutal and highly metaphorical early medieval epic. One-Eye (Mads Mikkelsen), a mute warrior of formidable strength, has been held prisoner by the chieftain Barde for years. A spectacularly brutal and efficient killer, One-Eye is dispatched by Barde to fight for money and land in increasingly ferocious hand-to-hand conflicts. Shown kindness only by Are (Maarten Steven), the young boy who tends him, and knowing there is a greater calling on his life, One-Eye escapes, taking Are with him. On their flight, One-Eye and Are meet a group of Viking Christians, 'God's own soldiers' on pilgrimage to the Holy Land. Joining together, each embarks on a journey into their own personal heart of darkness. On one level One-Eye's mission to find his destiny is rendered with explicit and violent physicality, but director Winding Refn also employs the beauty and strangeness of the natural world to create an impression of the quietness and stillness of his inner self. This journey itself is highly metaphorical: whether traveling toward a new Jerusalem, the New World or into the arms of Valhalla itself, Winding Refn creates an outstanding sense of time, place and emotion. With beautiful atmospheric visuals and a hauntingly evocative electronic score, Valhalla Rising has echoes of the doomed voyages of Aguirre, Wrath of God or Apocalypse Now but, as we have come to expect with Winding Refn's work, this is a true original.

Titanic is a 1997 American epic romantic disaster film directed, written, co-produced, co-edited and partly financed by James Cameron. A fictionalized account of the sinking of the RMS Titanic, it stars Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet as members of different social classes who fall in love aboard the ship during its ill-fated maiden voyage. Cameron's inspiration for the film was predicated on his fascination with shipwrecks; he wanted to convey the emotional message of the tragedy and felt that a love story interspersed with the human loss would be essential to achieving this. Production on the film began in 1995, when Cameron shot footage of the actual Titanic wreck. The modern scenes were shot on board the Akademik Mstislav Keldysh, which Cameron had used as a base when filming the wreck. A reconstruction of the Titanic built at Playas de Rosarito in Baja California, scale models, and computer-generated imagery were used to recreate the sinking. The film was partially funded by Paramount Pictures and 20th Century Fox, and, at the time, was the most expensive film ever made, with an estimated budget of $200 million.

Stella Does Tricks is a 1996 film about a young Glaswegian girl Stella, played by Kelly Macdonald, working as a prostitute in London. The film was the first feature film directed by Coky Giedroyc, inspired her previous work making documentaries about homeless people in Glasgow, Manchester, and London, and provided Macdonald with her first film role after Trainspotting. The film has been described as "an uncompromisingly feminist text, in which the Baby Doll turns Avenger", and by Lawrence van Gelder of the New York Times as a "bleak, perceptive portrait of the prostitute as a young girl torn between the need for genuine love and a career of sexual exploitation". Despite the film centering around the lives of female prostitutes, the only nudity in the film is male nudity. The screenplay was written by the novelist A. L. Kennedy, and draws in part on one of her earlier stories, Friday Payday. Cinematography was by frequent Ken Loach collaborator Barry Ackroyd.

The longest-running primetime series in the history of television, it has a historically long run, beginning during 1951 and continuing into 2014. From 1954 onward, all of its productions have been shown in color, although color television video productions were extremely rare in 1954. Many television movies have been shown on the program since its debut, though the program began with live telecasts of dramas and then changed to videotaped productions before finally changing to filmed ones.nThe series has received eighty Emmy Awards, twenty-four Christopher Awards, eleven Peabody Awards, nine Golden Globes, and four Humanitas Prizes. Once a common practice in American television, it is the last remaining television program where the title includes the name of its sponsor. Unlike other long-running TV series still on the air, it differs in that it broadcasts only occasionally and not on a weekly broadcast programming schedule.

For the Hillerman episodes, the American flag was worked into this opening title sequence.nOne of Mystery!'s early successes was Rumpole of the Bailey. Other noted successes include The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes starring Jeremy Brett in the title role, Inspector Morse with John Thaw, Brother Cadfael starring Derek Jacobi, and Prime Suspect starring Helen Mirren. The last one proved so popular that the series was moved to Masterpiece Theatre for higher ratings.

The series was broadcast on BBC between 1991 and 1993. In all, 20 episodes were produced across three series, and one feature length special, set in and filmed in France.nIt focused on the life and exploits of Detective Sergeant Freddie Spender who was often chosen to carry out more daring police cases. With his criminal sidekick Stick, Spender was one of the more remarkable TV detectives of the 1990s. The series featured a large amount of back story for the main characters with many episodes dealing with Spender's domestic life, his family and circumstances. Some of the storylines were surprisingly dark; one episode featured the death of Spender's wife at the hands of a ruthless gangster, another on the kidnap of one of his daughters. No further series were produced after the special, despite the popularity of the show, and it being a smash hit for the BBC in terms of ratings.nFord provided a Ford Sierra Sapphire RS Cosworth for each series.
