On 10 January 1956, Elvis Presley made his first recordings for RCA Records at The Methodist Television, Radio and TV Studios, 1525 McGavock Street, Nashville. "Heartbreak Hotel" was one of the songs recorded during this session, which was released as a single just 17 days later.

I help run a film club; every second Thursday we show a film to a small audience of around 20 - 25 people. We put it on during the day so inevitably the audience is mostly made up of older people.

Like nearly all of the 1970s rockers, Ted Nugent built his reputation through years of hard touring, "We played 300 concerts a year, but we didn't make any money. We could pay expenses, keep good speakers in the amps and share hotel rooms. It was tough, but that didn't matter, I'm a hunter I'll sleep in the woods."

This time of year is meant to be fun, but the twinkling lights, shiny shop fronts, looped yuletide tunes and nights out can make a hole in your pocket seem enormous. It's a reminder for many that they are out of work and can't afford to have the Christmas on display on the high street...

In four and a half billion years of existence there have been no creatures more dramatic or scarier. Whether they would be as popular if they existed today and were stomping down the high street, I don't know, but they're perfect for films because they are more spectacular, more awesome than most animals today, more like monsters, and yet they are real.

The new Walking With Dinosaurs film as I think this is the most realistic portrayal of dinosaurs that's ever been done on the big screen. I spend my life studying dinosaurs, pouring over the dry remains of their multi-million-year-old bones. This film brings dinosaurs to life unlike anything I've ever seen before. It brought a tear to my eye seeing the Gorgosaurus for the first time.
