For quite some time i have been fascinated by the spectacular beauty of the 13th Century Roman Liturgy for Easter. AUgustin's (Philosopher and church teacher who lived during the transition from the Antique to the Middle Ages) words about the art of the Sequence, which at the time were refered to by the singers as a work of music, inspired me to undertake the attempt to produce a film, one which essentially reflects what Augusrin heard. Indeed what did je hear? A form of communiction which didn't ne cessitate the spoken word, but one in which one spirit to another was revealed. I have presented here a Visual Sequence to the musical sequence.

The Liver Birds is a British sitcom set in the city of Liverpool, in the north-west of England, which aired on BBC1 from 1969 to 1978, and again in 1996. It was created by Carla Lane and Myra Taylor. These two Liverpudlian writers had met at a local writers club and decided to pool their talents. Having been invited to London by Michael Mills and asked to write about two young women sharing a flat, Mills brought in sitcom expert Sydney Lotterby to work with the writing team. Lotterby had previously worked with Eric Sykes, Sheila Hancock and on The Likely Lads. Carla Lane in fact wrote most of the episodes, Taylor co-writing only the first two series. The pilot was shown as an episode of Comedy Playhouse, the BBC's breeding ground for sitcoms, in April 1969.
The Thorn Birds: The Missing Years is a CBS miniseries that aired in 1996. It is a "midquel" to the original miniseries, The Thorn Birds, that aired on ABC in 1983.

The Missing Years was generally panned by critics and fans of the original miniseries for being unfaithful to the book. Adding to the dismay was the fact only one actor, Richard Chamberlain, returned to reprise his role as Ralph de Bricassart from the original miniseries.
