    Same old story, going back a long way: film isn't seen as art or culture in the UK, unless it wins an award somewhere. But it's our back-catalogue, from Hitchcock and Powell onwards, which the BFI restores and curates, that defines the UK in the wider world - and brings tourists. Just as much as the museums!
