A TIMELESS tale of an adorable fawn and his forest pals, or the death of childhood innocence? Either way, and nearly 75 years on, Disney classic Bambi packs as powerful a punch as it ever has. The Walt Disney Company bewitched generations of children and children-at-heart with its pioneering animated film, released in August 1942, about a wide-eyed young deer and his doting mom. But the shocking image of young Bambi curled up next to the doe after she is slain by hunters has become as iconic as any scene in cinema history, credited with opening up taboo conversations about death and helping youngsters cope with bereavement. It also kindled former Beatle Paul McCartney's interest in animal rights and has served as the template for every harrowing Disney death since, from Mufasa in The Lion King to Hiro's brother Tadashi in Big Hero 6. "You're creating a sense of what life was like for these animals in the forest and loss was part of it," production designer Paul Felix told journalists at Walt Disney Animation Studios in Burbank, California.

Human intrigue is mixed with climate change in this tale by the author of The Bees “Where is the fiction about climate change?” Amitav Ghosh asked in these pages last year . It’s a good question: glance at most publisherscatalogues and you would never know that humanity was facing the greatest challenge of its existence. Laline Paull’s two novels to date have brought humanity and narrative to the changes already under way on Earth – and unlike most environmentally conscious fiction, they’re intended for a mainstream audience. Her Baileys shortlisted 2014 debut The Bees followed the life of a single lowly bee; its anthropomorphised bee characters smiled and wept and shouted in joy, enchanting critics and readers with their richness and warmth. Her second novel, The Ice , focuses on human intrigue in the warming Arctic: in its opening pages, a glacier calves to reveal a body, several years dead, and the novel plays out as an inquest into this death.

The Solomon Islands were a long way from the nightlife and dating scenes he knew at Harvard, New York, Cape Cod and London. On one South Pacific night so dark you could hardly see your hand, with Jack at the helm at idle speed, an enemy destroyer came out of nowhere and rammed his PT-109, splitting it in two, instantly killing two of his crew. The rest paddled floating wreckage to shore, Jack separately towing the most injured of them as he swam for three-and-a half miles to a deserted island beach. The story of how they survived the wreckage and stranding would eventually establish JFKs reputation as a war hero, a reputation he would carry with him all the way to the White House. But its easy to see how, while his work to save his crew in the aftermath was without doubt heroic, the tale on the whole was open to interpretation. After all, he had been at the helm when the boat drifted into the path of an enemy ship.

It is a tale of two parties and to pass those parties are taking this election campaign and proposing to lead the UK along. Will voters look at.

To paraphrase Charles Dickens, let's call it a tale of two series coming to a close, with the third and final season of Bloodline launching on Netflix late tonight, and the third and final season of Kingdom debuting on AT&T's Audience on May 31. And, let's be clear, you should make sure both get a proper send-off. Though the former has been planned for a while and the latter saw the plug pulled suddenly only last month, the respective conclusions of both the Todd A...

While it's true that the human brain does operate in incredible and, sometimes, mysterious ways, more often than not, months, years, or even decades of thought and experimentation are necessary to reach truly revolutionary scientific conclusions. Now, did Einstein come up with the inklings of the general theory of relativity while at work? Most likely. Did Constantin Fahlberg discover saccharin because he forgot to wash his hands? Maybe. What's important isn't whether or not these things happened exactly as history tells them, but rather that people get interested in science. The story of saccharin's discovery might not seem that appealing to some audiences, but the tale of a scientist with dirty hands tasting everything in his lab until he found the mysterious source of sweetness might be. While science is, of course, super exciting to scientists, it is crucial that everyone get involved and interested.

A house with a story THE cellar is flooded and Chris Ranalli worries about snakes. From the safety of the back door, he points out the sturdy walls—two feet thick, as if to withstand Mediterranean earthquakes—and the elegantly vaulted ceilings. “They lived in the top two storeys and made wine in the basement,” explains Mr Ranalli, who now tends the 100-year-old vineyard adjacent to the house. The view from the road is anomalous: framed by Catawba trees, the façade combines northern Italian architecture and Ozark stone, seeming to belong as much to the Apennines as Arkansas. This house tells a story that is both familiar and extraordinary, as the exploits of immigrants to America tend to be. It is a tale of struggle and success, of awful but commonplace suffering, villainy and heroes, including a dauntless priest who, like a latter-day Moses, led his flock to a new life in the mountains. It epitomises the variety behind the strip-mall, fast-food sameness... Continue reading

The Wizard of Lies , brilliantly written by Sam Levinson, Sam Baum, and John Burnham Schwartz, is based on New York Times reporter Diana Henriquesbook (she also plays herself in the movie), and is structured using her prison-house interviews with Madoff as the framework of a series of intense flashbacks which present the sorry tale in revealing fragments; a similar structure to the one used in Avalon . The film poster for Avalon. Levinson’s presentation focuses on the most basic human elements of the story which reminds us of the Avalon immigrants and their own complex dealings with the American economic system and the pluralistic social universe of their new homeland. After many decades of engagement with America, Jews like Madoff felt entitled to game the system in a way that displayed a shocking lack of basic moral values. Exploitation became the key to Madoff’s scheme to enrich himself by bilking the unsuspecting investors.
