Remember that dead body Gordon saw in the street last episode? Unsurprisingly, it's haunting his dreams, as we see in the opening scene of "Giant. " I've had less than five nightmares in my entire life, but I imagine that might have haunted me as well. Donna checks on Gordon as he wakes up screaming at 2 a.m., and reminds him that she's leaving on a business trip with Hunt in a few days. The rest of the "Halt and Catch Fire" universe is also awake at this hour, as we see Joe working late at the office.

CARDIFF, Wales -- Lessons from Baltimore are being imported by this Welsh capital to help convert its derelict inner harbor into a dynamic lagoon-side location.Like Baltimore before it, Cardiff is a port that is past its prime, the victim of closed coal mines and idle steel mills.In its industrial heyday earlier in this century, there were 600 pits and 256,000 miners working in the Rhondda and other valleys that stretch like fingers into the surrounding hills. Today there are just seven working mines and 6,000 miners.

Open since late November, the long-awaited Wales Millennium Centre on wide, flat Cardiff Bay, has already been nicknamed "the Armadillo" by the cheeky Welsh. It's their answer to the Sydney Opera House in Australia, a grand new stage for the "Land of Song," built of everything Welsh: lovely pale hardwoods, slate from quarries in the north, stainless steel made in Pontypool, glass designed in Swan-sea. Its facade bears massive legends in English and Welsh. The Welsh words, written by poet Gwyneth Lewis, translate as "Creating truth like glass from the furnace of inspiration."

Ninety years after the discovery of a vein of green marble brought fame to the small northern Harford County town of Cardiff, the stone still commands a loyal - but dwindling - following. The once-common marble that earned a place in American architectural history by gracing the interiors of national landmarks like the White House and New York's Empire State Building has not been quarried since 1982. Many people living in Harford County today aren't even familiar with the stone. But to admirers like Sam Jones of Forest Hill, there will always be a special place in their hearts - and homes - for what locals will always call "the green stone."

If you love hearing Martin Scorsese talk movies, don't miss "Cameraman: The Life and Work of Jack Cardiff. " Craig McCall's tip-top documentary centers on the cinematographer who turned Technicolor into an incomparably vivid and fluid palette with movies like "Pandora and the Flying Dutchman" and "The Barefoot Contessa. " (It plays at the AFI Silver at 2:45 p.m. Saturday and 8 p.m. Monday.) No one is more passionate than Scorsese at paying tribute to fellow artists like Cardiff and his most influential collaborators, the writing-directing-producing team of Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger (aka "the Archers")

Now and Forever By Ray Bradbury William Morrow / 224 pages / $24.95 I have had the pleasure of listening to Ray Bradbury for more than 40 years - in speeches, interviews and late-night conversations over a glass of wine. His energy and exuberance rarely falter, and listeners almost always go away inspired. That first afternoon in 1964 in his Wilshire Boulevard office, we sat on the floor and played with some of the same "toys" he still plays with today in the basement of his home: miniature dinosaurs and spaceships, Bullwinkle Moose and comic books of every description.
