In this deeply symbolic and visually lush film, as far as Tashbash is concerned, he's just a malcontent, a fairly ordinary hell-raiser who has gotten into trouble with the law in the past. Sure, he hates the village headman who is a toady to the region's oppressive landlord, and he dislikes the fact that everyone looks to the headman for help because they have no place else to turn, but he's just an ordinary guy and has no solutions for his fellow villagers. However, after one of them has a vision in which Tashbash is shown to be a manifestation of one of their more important local saints, the villagers unite as one in seeking him out for help with the upcoming visit of the landlord to collect rents which they can't pay. Their adulation and reverence is so persistent that eventually even Tashbash becomes a believer.

Coppers is a British fly-on-the-wall documentary television series broadcast on Channel 4, about policing in the United Kingdom. First broadcast on 1 November 2010, the series followed the day to day lives of police officers from four territorial police forces around the country, covering various activities: custody suite operations, road unit policing, 999 response, night time policing and riot control. A second series began on 9 January 2012 at 9pm and ran for 8 episodes.
Top Coppers follows the adventures of cops John Mahogany and Mitch Rust, as they attempt to rid the fictional world of Justice City from its deranged criminal underworld. The universe and its characters are derived from the conventions of American and British cop shows of the Seventies and Eighties, from Starsky & Hutch to The Professionals, but is set in no specific time or country. With big, silly characters and hilarious stories, Top Coppers is filled with familiar tropes and references from the police and action genres, as well as drawing on relatable British situations, problems and relationships.

This is a TV special/documentary in which David Copperfield is interviewed in his Magic Warehouse by his girlfriend, the German supermodel Claudia Schiffer, about his career as an illusionist, speaking primarily of the most famous illusions and escapes performed over a period of about 15 years. The illusions shown are taken from 8 TV specials between The Magic of David Copperfield IV: The Vanishing Airplane (1981) andThe Magic of David Copperfield XV: Fires of Passion (1993) and are 12: "Train Car Vanish" (1991), "Amazon Ritual" (aka "Burning Rope Escape" and "Fires Of Passion") (1993), "Graffiti Wall" (1992), "Cocoon" (aka "Passion's Prison") (1993), "Lear Jet Vanish" (1981), "Death Saw" (1988), "Brazilian Water Levitation" (1991), "Statue Of Liberty Disappears" (1983), "Touch The Magic - Destinations Of Flight" (1992), "Walking Through The Great Wall Of China" (1986), "Building Implosion" (1989) and "Flying" (1992). However several illusions are reedited in audio and video to be shorter, even by several minutes, removing first the respective explanations. Moreover, 5 short montages without either dialogues or sound effects are shown along the steps of the interview, and each of them, accompanied by a different song or instrumental music, shows various other illusions only in the related significant phases, and further are just mentioned for few seconds. This TV special/documentary is the only one also officially released on VHS and DVD-Video, but with the title "DAVID COPPERFIELD - ILLUSION", printed on the cover and also shown before the beginning of the special. Released in 2000 as SPECIAL COLLECTOR'S EDITION, this home video release presents further differences from the original version aired on CBS in 1994: it also shows 3 illusions taken from The Magic of David Copperfield XVI: Unexplained Forces (1995): "Grandpa's Four Aces", "Barclay House" and "Snow", and presents different closing credits. The release on DVD-Video presents a main menu that allows instant access to 13 illusions and to the extras, which include the choice of language between the original English audio and a Spanish dubbing, and an optional audio commentary by Copperfield himself, which accompanies the entire documentary.
