We didn't exactly believe your story, Miss O'Shaughnessy, we believed your two hundred dollars...

Tomorrow at three o'clock make a date with Bogie at Prohibition Bar. A rare screening of John Huston's Maltese Falcon is the perfect way to while away a lazy Sunday afternoon. Bogart is on top form as private eye Sam Spade. The dialogue crackles from beginning to end as our laconic hero charts a way through Dashiell Hammett's labyrinthine plot. Sydney Greenstreet gives an Academy Award nominated debut film performance as Kasper Gutman alongside Peter Lorre's slimeball Joel Cairo as Mary Astor ill-advisedly toys with our man Bogie. 3:00pm, free admission. Please keep the bar ticking over (Prohibtion 33 Pale Ale recommended) and you're welcome to take along your own nibbles. 


Today, Saturday, be sure to tune to Radio 3's J to Z at 5:00pm. The Danish Radio Big Band will be heard in a concert performance with guest soloist John Scofield. And back to Sunday, home from Prohibition Bar, logon to Mike Dixon's Jazz Time programme (6:00pm) on Aycliffe Radio (www.ayclifferadio.co.uk).
