Sally Potter’s latest film is an evocative and beautifully-shot portrait of post-war Britain, as seen through the eyes of Elle Fanning’s impressionable young teenager. She plays Ginger, who finds herself increasingly estranged from her mother (Christina Hendricks) a drawn further into the world of her pacifist and anti-nuclear activist father (Alessandro Nivola). However, her friendship with the fiery Rosa (Alice Englert) is severely tested by his unconventional lifestyle. The result is an intelligent examination of political and personal responsibility.

Me playing the organ at St George's Roman Catholic Cathedral in Southwark, London. St George's Cathedral originally contained an instrument built by Bishop (rebuilt by Henry Willis) but like many places, suffered severe damage during the blitz on London during World War Two and so the present instrument was built by the famous John Compton Organ Company Ltd in 1958. The organ is built in true Compton format using the extension principal with 19 ranks of pipes installed in 2 enclosed chambers located east of the south transept. However, the patent 32ft polyphonic bass is unenclosed as is a fantastic Tuba! The drawstop console is located behind a screen at the very front of the cathedral below the east window. Each swell box has 2 sets of shutters directing the sound into either the chancel and nave but there are also drawstops to allow these to be controlled seperately. It is said that when originally installed, tonal finishing had to be done during the night due to the noise of trains running nearby! The organ received an overhaul in 2000 and apart from a few tonal changes, remains very much original and is a superb example of a large instrument built by Compton in the post war years. The specification reads: PEDAL Sub Bass 32' Sub Bass 16' Contra Bass 16' Open Metal 16' Contra Viola 16' Bourdon 16' Principal 8' Octave 8' Stopped Octave 8' Geigen 4' Octave Flute 4' Octavin 2' Mixture IV Harmonics 32' Bombarde 16' Posaune 16' Hautboy 16' Posaune 8' Clarion 4' CHOIR Double Dulciana 16' Open Diapason 8' Gemshorn 8' Stopped Diapason 8' Dulciana 8' Vox Angelica 8' Principal 4' Stopped Flute 4' Dulcet 4' Nazard 2.2/3' Dulcet Fifteenth 2' Flautino 2' Tierce 1.3/5' Sifflote 1' Acuta II Clarinet 8' Contra Posaune 16' Posaune 8' Tuba 8' Tuba Clarion 4' Tremulant GREAT Double Diapason 16' Bourdon 16' First Diapason 8' Second Diapason 8' Third Diapason 8' Hohl Flute 8' Stopped Diapason 8' Octave 4' Principal 4' Open Flute 4' Twelfth 2.2/3' Fifteenth 2' Fourniture IV Cymbale III Contra Posaune 16' Posaune 8' Clarion 4' SWELL Contra Viola 16' Geigen Diapason 8' Viola da Gamba 8' Voix Celeste 8' Harmonic Flute 8' Geigen Octave 4' Viola 4' Harmonic Flute 4' Nazard 2.2/3' Fifteenth 2' Piccolo 2' Cymbale III Contra Hautboy 16' Trumpet 8' Hautboy 8' Clarion 4' Tremulant COUPLERS Choir to Pedal Great to Pedal Swell to Pedal Swell Octave to Pedal Swell to Choir Choir to Great Swell to Great SHUTTER DRAWSTOPS Chancel Shutters On Nave Shutters On ACCESSORIES 8 double touch thumb pistons to Choir and Pedal 8 double touch thumb pistons to Great and Pedal duplicated by toe pistons 8 double touch thumb pistons to Swell and Pedal duplicated by toe pistons 4 general thumb pistons 3 reversible thumb pistons 1 reversible to piston - Great to Pedal Pedal combinations to Great pistons 2 balanced expression pedals with indicators 10 ventil switches 1 general cancel thumb piston Voltmeter For my first video im playing the hymn 'Hail the day that sees him rise' to the tune 'Ascension'. There is no mistaking the unenclosed Tuba can be heard doing the 'Alleluia' at the end of each line! Many thanks to the Cathedral staff for allowing me access to this magnificent Compton organ.

Me playing the organ at South Harrow Baptist Church, Middlesex. South Harrow Baptist Church was opened in 1935 and although a pipe organ was planned, this project was delayed as a result of the second world war and so a reed organ was used until the present instrument was built by the John Compton Organ Ltd and opened with a recital by Dr George Thalben Ball on 30th April 1949. This is believed to be Comptons first new pipe organ installation in the post war years. The organ is built using the extension principal with the pipework, including the Compton patent 32ft polyphonic bass, contained in a fully enclosed chamber speaking through ornamental grilles. In 1977 a Vox Angelica rank was added by local organ builder Keith Bance. A Rohr Flute rank has also been added. In 2005 the organ was given an overhaul and new solid state action fitted as well as a complete rewire. The specification reads: PEDAL Sub Bass 32' Sub Bass 16' Octave 8' Flute 8' Flute 4' Trombone 16' Trumpet 8' Great to Pedal Swell to Pedal GREAT Bourdon 16' Open Diapason 8' Rohr Flute 8' Salicional 8' Octave 4' Stopped Flute 4' Salicet 4' Twelfth 2.2/3' Fifteenth 2' Trumpet 8' SWELL Contra Salicional 16' Hohl Flute 8' Salicional 8' Vox Angelica 8' Flute 4' Salicet 4' Nazard 2.2/3' Piccolo 2' Tierce 1.3/5' Cymbale III Trombone 16' Trumpet 8' Clarion 4' Tremulant ACCESSORIES 4 double touch thumb pistons to Great and Pedal 4 double touch thumb pistons to Swell and Pedal 4 toe pistons to Pedal 1 canceller thumb piston - Great to Pedal 1 canceller thumb piston - Swell to Pedal 1 balanced expression pedal - organ 1 balanced expression pedal - crescendo Double touch canceller to each department For this first video im playing the hymn 'O Jesus Christ, grow thou in me' to the tune 'Westminster New' which shows off the main sounds on the organ for accompanying congregational hymn singing. Many thanks to organist David Steward for allowing me access to this wonderful Compton organ.

Me playing the organ at Jewin Chapel, London - a few minutes walk from Barbican underground station and also very close to the venue of 'Summer in the City' - a huge event taking place the same day I was here which sees literally 1000s of youtubers attending. Ironically, I had brought advanced train tickets with a view to going along but then realising that this wasnt for me and the tickets being non-refundable, I arranged to do what I enjoy doing most - playing Compton organs and here was my first visit of the day. As a result I decided to call this my 'summer in the city organ crawl'. The present church was built in 1961 after the original church, along with most of the area, was destroyed during the blitz in world war two. The organ installed was built by the famous John Compton Organ Company Ltd and was one of the last large complete instruments to be built by Compton before they sold off the pipe organ division and concentrated on building electronic organs. The organ is built on the extension principal using a total of 8 ranks of pipes housed in 2 fully enclosed chambers which speak into the church via a beautifully designed ornamental grille and dummy pipe facade at the front of the church. The organ is an excellent example of a post war Compton instrument and remains completely original. The specification reads: PEDAL Sub Bass 32' Open Bass 16' Sub Bass 16' Echo Bass 16' Bass Flute 8' Octave 8' Quint 5.1/3' Flute 4' Octave Flute 2' Cornet III Trombone 16' Trumpet 8' Clarion 4' Choir to Pedal Great to Pedal Swell to Pedal CHOIR Rohr Flute 8' Salicional 8' Vox Angelica 8' Klein Flote 4' Nazard 2.2/3' Doublette 2' Tierce 1.3/5' Larigot 1.1/3' Sifflote 1 Swell to Choir GREAT Sub Diapason 16' First Diapason 8' Second Diapason 8' Rohr Flute 8' Salicional 8' Principal 4' Stopped Flute 4' Twelfth 2.2/3' Fifteenth 2' Mixture III Choir to Great Swell to Great SWELL Contra Viola 16' Viola 8' Open Flute 8' Octave Viola 4' Open Flute 4' Nazard 2.2/3' Piccolo 2' Cymbale III Trombone 16' Trumpet 8' Clarion 4' Tremulant ACCESSORIES 6 double touch thumb pistons to Choir and Pedal 6 double touch thumb pistons to Great and Pedal 6 double touch thumb pistons to Swell and Pedal 4 toe pistons to Pedal and Great 4 toe pistons to Pedal and Swell 1 canceller thumb piston - Choir to Pedal 1 canceller thumb piston - Great to Pedal 1 canceller thumb piston - Swell to Pedal 1 reversible toe piston - Great to Pedal 1 balanced expression pedal - Great/Choir 1 balanced expression pedal - Swell 1 balanced expression pedal - crescendo Being in a Welsh presbyterian church and wanting something to demonstrate the power of this instrument resulted in the obvious choice of hymn - "Guide me, O thou great Jehovah' to the tune "Cwm Rhondda". Due to the recent extreme weather patterns, the Trumpet was out of tune so please excuse that. Many thanks to the church officials for allowing me to play this magnificent Compton organ and of course a big thank you to my subscribers and followers - your support and encouragement means a lot.

Call of Duty: Ghosts hits shelves today, but it's the new commercial that has everyone talking! Sexy actress Megan Fox is the first ever woman to appear in an ad for the game. The trailer features four friends fighting their way through a post-war Las Vegas and Megan appears as a super sexy sharpshooter that ensures everyone escapes alive.

Kim Ki-duk's 2001 film "Address Unknown" presents a political allegory of modern Korea by referencing post-war trauma through local characters set in a U.S. military base town in rural area near the border with N.Korea in 1970. The physical and emotional scars of past violence reveal current victimisation re-enacting social injustice. Cold War militarism and the U.S. presence shatter the lives of three young people and the community as they internalise the destruction of their lives.

Musically, much of The <b>Final Cut</b> has little connection with the familiar <b>Pink Floyd</b> sound, featuring little in the way of synthesisers or extended instrumental passages and with many of the arrangements focused around acoustic instruments such as acoustic guitars, piano, brass, string quartets and full orchestrations, although the album does also feature some heavier, hard rock songs which have arrangements and an overall sound similar to many tracks on The Wall. The <b>Final Cut</b> was <b>Pink</b> ...

The late Johnny Cash was one of the most influential figures in American music in the post war period. He managed to combine elements of folk, rock 'n' roll and country, which together with his distinctive voice and guitar style, created an instantly recognisable sound. 1994 was to prove to be Cash's only appearance at the Montreux Festival. The "Man In Black" had just released his acclaimed American Recordings album and his European tour took in Montreux on July 5. This track is taken from the Eagle Vision DVD "Live at Montreux".
