Coming to Hollywood as a celebrated boy genius featuring a spectacular career arc in New York including his "War of the Worlds" radio hoax, Orson Welles is stymied on the subject for his first film. After a dinner party at Hearst Castle, during which he has a verbal altercation with Hearst, Welles decides to do a movie about Hearst. It takes him some time to convince co-writer Herman Mankiewicz and the studio, but Welles eventually gets the script and the green light, keeping the subject very hush-hush with the press.

Being Human is a British supernatural drama television series. It was created and written by Toby Whithouse and is currently broadcast on BBC Three. The show blends elements of flatshare comedy and horror drama. It originally starred Aidan Turner as Mitchell (a vampire), Russell Tovey as George (a werewolf) and Lenora Crichlow as Annie (a ghost)—all of whom are sharing accommodation and attempting as best as they can to live a "normal" life and blend in with the ordinary humans around them. During the show's second series, Sinead Keenan became part of the main cast. The first two series were set in in Totterdown, Bristol, and the third series relocated to Barry, Wales. On 13 March 2011, series creator Toby Whithouse announced that Turner had left the show and that new characters would be introduced.
The series is one of the most popular shows on BBC’s iPlayer. The second series premiered on BBC Three on 10 January 2010. The third series premiered on 23 January 2011. The day following the series 3 finale, the BBC announced a fourth series would premiere on the BBC in 2012.

Set in the same hospital as its sister series, this show follows the everyday lives, professional and personal, of the doctors, nurses and patients who find themselves, for various reasons, in the wards of Holby City General Hospital.
