War, love and weirdness: A Matter of Life and Death – 70 years on
Space to play or pause, M to mute, left and right arrows to seek, up and down arrows for volume. How authorities are failing to protect women and children in mortal danger, and failing to prevent their partners' homicidal rage. One woman at deadly risk was virtually abandoned to her fate by authorities, who repeatedly failed or refused to act on her pleas for help. Why was so little done by police, prisons, parole services, the courts and child protection departments to stop her predictable, brutal murder? Another woman overlooked by authorities ultimately died in front of her two small children at the hands of her drunken former partner - he received just a short prison term for the crime.

A matter of bacterial life and death
Over 50 years ago, standard microbiological methods were established for determining whether bacterial cells were dead or alive. Recently there has been a flurry of reports suggesting that bacteria may exist in an eclipsed state, escaping detection by standard methods. Whether there really is such a state is of more than academic interest, considering the implications for public health. The ensuing debate has been unusually energetic for the normally cultured community of microbiologists.
With its melodrama, romance and end-of-war spectral visions, the Powell and Pressburger film baffled critics in But its strangeness makes it a masterpiece.

Это была мелочь, но все же изъян, отсутствие чистоты - не этого она ожидала от Танкадо, наносящего свой коронный удар. - Тут что-то не так, - наконец сказала. - Не думаю, что это ключ. Фонтейн глубоко вздохнул. Его темные глаза выжидающе смотрели на Сьюзан. - Мисс Флетчер, как вы полагаете, если это не ключ, то почему Танкадо обязательно хотел его отдать. Если он знал, что мы его ликвидируем, то естественно было бы ожидать, что он накажет нас, допустив исчезновение кольца.
