Collection of six films starring Harrison Ford. '42' (2013) is a biographical drama about African-American baseball player Jackie Robinson, here portrayed by Chadwick Boseman. In 1945, having been spotted by a scout, Robinson is signed by Brooklyn Dodgers general manager Branch Rickey (Ford) and becomes the first black man to play in the Major League.

In 'Firewall' (2006) Ford stars as Jack Stanfield, an average family man in Seattle who heads up the hi-tech security team at his local bank. But following a seemingly trivial case of identity theft, Jack's life is turned upside down when his wife (Virginia Madsen) and two children are kidnapped. The ransom is $100 million which the kidnappers, led by Bill Cox (Paul Bettany), want Jack to obtain for them via his expert computer skills.

Kimble then strives to prove his innocence whilst staying one step ahead of the dogged US Marshal Sam Gerard (Tommy Lee Jones).
Set in 1953, this comedy drama follows Ann Deveraux (Renee Zellweger) and her sons Robbie (Mark Rendall) and George (Logan Lerman) on a road trip with a difference. When Ann discovers her husband, Dan (Kevin Bacon), is having an affair, she buys a blue Cadillac and journeys with her sons from the East to the West coast of America. On their stops along the way, Ann searches for a potential replacement for the philandering Dan, hoping to find financial security and a father figure for Robbie and George. The results, however, are often catastrophic, leading Ann to make some surprising discoveries about herself.

Six television plays by the controversial and award-winning writer Dennis Potter. In 'Blade On the Feather' (1980), a reclusive writer who lives on a secluded estate is visited by a young man who claims to be an admirer of his work. As the two men get to know each other, it becomes clear that the purpose of the young man's visit is to uncover a dark secret in the writer's past. In 'Rain On the Roof' (1980), a dysfunctional couple is slowly being torn apart by adultery and jealousy.

In 'Cream in My Coffee' (1980), an elderly couple explore the memories of their relationship after they visit the hotel where they first met. In 'Shaggy Dog' (1968), no-nonsense businessman Wilkie (John Neville) is interviewed for a position with a top-of-the-line hotel chain corporation. During the interview, Wilkie attempts to complete a shaggy-dog story. However, his frustrations lead to a total breakdown, and he suddenly snaps and pulls a gun on the interviewers. In 'Moonlight On the Highway' (1969), a troubled young man, David Peters (Ian Holm), rejects the rock music of the day and immerses himself in the tunes of 1930s crooner Al Bowlly, who was killed during the London blitz.

Finally, in the semi-autobiographical 'Lay Down Your Arms' (1970), set at the time of the 1956 Suez Crisis and the Russian invasion of Hungary, Private Bob Hawk (Nikolas Simmonds) reports to the London Intelligence Office, where the strength of Soviet troops is under scrutiny.
