In the winter of 1820, the New England whaling ship Essex was assaulted by something no one could believe: a whale of mammoth size and will, and an almost human sense of vengeance. The real-life maritime disaster would inspire Herman Melville's Moby-Dick. But that told only half the story. "In the Heart of the Sea" reveals the encounter's harrowing aftermath, as the ship's surviving crew is pushed to their limits and forced to do the unthinkable to stay alive. Braving storms, starvation, panic and despair, the men will call into question their deepest beliefs, from the value of their lives to the morality of their trade, as their captain searches for direction on the open sea and his first mate still seeks to bring the great whale down.

The television series A Dance To The Music Of Time tells the story of two Englishmen navigating the wild cultural changes of English society between the 1920s and the post-war years. The series chronicles the decades-long friendship of Kenneth Widmerpool (Simon Russel Beale) and Nicholas Jenkins (James Purefoy) and each man's struggles with romance, adultery, war, marriage, divorce, and career ambition during some of England's most tumultuous years of the twentieth century. Claire Skinner, Emma Fielding, and Miranda Richardson play the women involved with Widmerpool and Jenkins. Gillian Barge plays Mrs. Erdleigh and Nicholas Jones plays Bob Duport. The plot begins in a school in the 1920s where Kenneth Widmerpool, a target for ridicule from schoolmates, meets Nicholas Jenkins, a philandering womanizer. The story flashes forward into the thirties where the two friends deal with problems in their marriages while experimenting with wild living in Britain's rising bohemian culture. All the while the dark clouds of war loom as Hitler's Nazi regime begins to gain power in Germany. Emmy-winner Christopher Moraff shares the director's chair with Alvin Rakoff. The Emmy-winning screenwriter for the series, Hugh Whitemore, is known for his expertise in English history and adds a knowledgeable depth to A Dance To The Music Of Time.
