The Hunt for Moby-Dick, 2009, BBC Arena Film (84 mins)

6.15, Friday 4 November

Travelling in the footsteps of Ishmael, the narrator of Moby Dick, Philip Hoare visits the whaling ports of New England searching for the truth behind the story and draws an eerie parallel between Captain Ahab’s crazed pursuit of the great white whale and today’s war on terror. He enters a world haunted by a bloody and violent past, and, in the three mile-deep waters of the Atlantic, has his own encounter with the legendary sperm whale.
