National Theatre Live
Thursday 16th May
7.00 p.m. £11/£10
James Graham's biting, energetic and critically-acclaimed new play strips back politics down to the practical realities of those behind the scenes who roll up their sleeves, and on occasion bend the rules to manoeuvre a diverse and conflicting chorus of MPs withing the Mother of all Parliments.
It's 1974 and the corridors of Westminster ring with the sound of infighting and backbiting as Britain's political parties battle to change the future of the nation, whatever it takes. In this hung parliament, the ruling holds on by a thread. Votes are won and lost by one, fist fights erupt in the bars and ill MPs are hauled in to cast their votes. It's a time when a staggering number of politicians die, and age-old traditions and allegiances are thrown aside in the struggle for power.

Andre Rieu's 2013 Maastricht Concert
Affectionally known as "The King of Waltz", André performs a series of concerts in his home town of Maastricht, in The Netherlands every year. The concerts are performed in front of thousands of fans and are set amongst the beautiful medieval backdrop of his beautiful home town of Maastricht. As always, André is joined by his famous Johann Strauss Orchestra, his Soprano's, Tenors and some very special guests. The Maastricht concerts are André's most popular concerts of the year with his most dedicated fans flying from all over the world to see this incredible event live. The Maastricht concerts are so special and so unique with the atmosphere in the town square heightened by both the enormous crowds and the many restaurants lining the square, who all take part in this magnificent event.
When asked if André had a message for his fans around the world, he said: “If you can’t join us in Maastricht, we will come to you. It is going to be a magical event with some very special guests. Come and enjoy the music on the big screen in the comfort of your local cinema." 2013 is shaping up to be his biggest and most spectacular concert ever to be screened in cinemas.
As always, the broadcast will feature CinemaLive host, Charlotte Hawkins, who will introduce the show as well as conduct an interview with André the moment he steps off stage, exclusively for cinema audiences.
The concert will be approximately 180 minutes and include a 15 minute interval. Spoken parts are in English.
