In their unremitting worldwide quest to ensure that puritan values are observed wherever they have influence, the Americans occupying Japan outlawed the famous Yoshiwara District in Tokyo, where prostitution had been legal for many hundreds of years. However, long before that international disaster, a fire destroyed most of the district in 1911. This lavishly produced film explores the career of a young girl who was sold into prostitution in 1908 up to the time of the fire in 1911. In the story of this historical drama, which is punctuated by a few softcore sex scenes, the girl goes through many emotional ups and downs, as do the other prostitutes. The customs of that closed society are re-created in loving detail, and the girl is shown choosing her honorable calling over the option of marriage as the film ends.

Andrew Graham-Dixon explores the ancient Christian practice of preserving holy relics and the largely forgotten art form that went with it, the reliquary. Fragments of bone or fabric placed inside a bejewelled shrine, a sculpted golden head or even a life-sized silver hand were, and still are, objects of religious devotion believed to have the power to work miracles. Most precious of all, though, are relics of Jesus Christ and the programme also features three reliquaries containing the holiest of all relics - those associated with the Crucifixion.

Vivre sa vie was a turning point for Jean-Luc Godard and remains one of his most dynamic films, combining brilliant visual design with a tragic character study. The lovely Anna Karina, Godard’s greatest muse, plays Nana, a young Parisian who aspires to be an actress but instead ends up a prostitute, her downward spiral depicted in a series of discrete tableaux of daydreams and dances. Featuring some of Karina and Godard’s most iconic moments – from her movie theater vigil with The Passion of Joan of Arc to her seductive pool-hall strut – Vivre sa vie is a landmark of the French New Wave that still surprises at every turn.
