Vienna, 1949. Still ravaged by the ravages of the second World War, the once beautiful city is bruised and battered but still standing, hints of her former glory still present even as the Americans, British, French, and Soviets portion her up.

This is the stage for the Third Man, British Noir excellence which has been ranked as variously, "the greatest British film of all time" and "the second best British film ever" ... so it's really good!

We explore the twisty world of Harry Lime and chums and along the way learn a little bit about what it was like to make a film in the true golden age of cinema.
