Movie Moments episode on passion

 

In this Movie Moments episode, Carol Pollard asks us to consider the different ways in which the characters in the movie demonstrate their passion. Harold Abrahams devotes himself to his training, but his determination to prove himself means that he sometimes excludes others. Eric Liddell runs to honour those around him, and to worship God. Watching what happens to Harold and Eric as they each achieve their goals, we're given pause for thought. As we run the race of life, does our passion cause us to look inwards, or outwards?

Reel to Real video on trust

 

In this Reel to Real episode Lord David Puttnam (Chariots of Fire producer), and Cameron Saunders (Managing Director of 20th Century Fox UK) share their personal perspectives on trust. With illustrations from the movie they apply their experiences in the film industry to those we all share in ordinary life. They consider what it means to trust in our own vision, in those around us and, ultimately a greater purpose - a higher calling. In these uncertain times, where should we be placing our trust?

Reel to Real video on dedication

 

Chariots of Fire ends with a brief statement about Eric Liddell's later life. We learn that he turned his back on fame and fortune in order to go to China as a missionary, where he subsequently died. But what's the full story behind these intriguing snippets? This Reel to Real video features interviews with Robert Rendall, the Chief Executive of the Eric Liddell Centre, and with Stephen Metcalf, who as a 14 year old boy was interned along with Eric in a prison camp. They help to unpack Eric's story, revealing the enduring theme of dedication to God and to others that was evident throughout his life. Who or what are we dedicated to, and how do we demonstrate this dedication through our lives?
