Mars. In true colour.
Just so you know, a lot of images of Mars which you’ll see have been manipulated. A lot of them have boosted contrast and saturation. So if you’ve ever wondered – images like this one are what Mars actually looks like.
Apocalypse Now (1979) dir. Francis Ford Coppola
We didn’t want to do anything naturalistic. It had to have its own style. I didn’t want it to look like reportage. I put artificial colour, artificial light next to real colour, real light - to have the explosion of the napalm next to a green palm tree; to have the fire of an explosion next to a sunset in order to represent the conflict between culture and the irrational. I realised the film was not really a war movie. It was about civilisation. Every culture wants to see in itself only its good side. But we all have a conscious and an unconscious side. — Vittorio Storaro, Apocalypse Now cinematographer

Google has removed a total of 12 BBC News stories from some search results since controversial EU “right to be forgotten” laws came into force in May. The stories range from coverage of a court case on bomb-making in Northern Ireland 13 years ago to a dispute over a lost dog. Google notified the BBC of each of the removals, but it did not disclose who had made the removal requests. The stories will no longer appear in the results of certain search terms. Only searches made in Europe are affected under the law.
