There Will be No Leave Today (Russian: Сегодня увольнения не будет…) is a 1959 student film by the Russian film directors Andrei Tarkovsky and Aleksandr Gordon. Based on a real postwar incident the film is about an army unit trying to dispose unexploded bombs to save a small town.

Mit dem „Brief über die Kriegsschwindler“ bedankte sich Boris Vian im Mai 1959 wenige Wochen vor seinem Tod für den Abdruck seines Stücks „Der Nachmittag der Generäle“ in den „Dossiers“ des Collège de Pataphysique.

… Man möge mir glauben: an dem Tag, an dem niemand mehr aus dem Krieg zurückkehrt, ist er endlich richtig geführt worden. An diesem Tag wird man feststellen, daß alle bisher gescheiterten Versuche das Werk von Witzbolden gewesen sind. An diesem Tag wird man feststellen, daß ein Krieg genügt, um die Vorurteile zu beseitigen, die dieser Vernichtungsart anhaften. Von diesem Tag an wird es für immer unnötig sein, von neuem zu beginnen.- irrationale.net

Four major jazz albums were made, each a high watermark for the artists and a powerful reflection of the times. Each opened up dramatic new possibilities for jazz which continue to be felt Miles Davis Kind of Blue Dave Brubeck, Time Out Charles Mingus, Mingus Ah Um; and Ornette Coleman, The Shape of Jazz to Come.

Rarely seen archive performances help vibrantly bring the era to life and explore what made these albums vital both in 1959 and the 50 years since. The programme contains interviews with Lou Reed, Dave Brubeck, Ornette Coleman, Charlie Haden, Herbie Hancock, Joe Morello (Brubecks drummer) and Jimmy Cobb (the only surviving member of Miles band) along with a host of jazz movers and shakers from the 50s and beyond.

At various points in his life he considered himself a liberal, a socialist, and a pacifist, but he also admitted that he had never been any of these in any profound sense. He was born in Monmouthshire, into one of the most prominent aristocratic families in Britain.
