The Underground Movement
Narrated by David Attcnborough
A worm's-eye-view of life underground. Using special camera techniques, we travel down a mole tunnel to see how a mole excavates and how it catches worms; we see the tiny animal forms that live in the watery film around soil particles; we see some of the numerous species that make up the world beneath us.

A new series of the Holiday programme returns this week to its by now familiar Sunday spot. And in this first programme film reports from home and abroad establish a theme of contrasts.
From Scotland CLIFF MICHELMORE reports on a coach tour which takes us north along the west of Scotland to Mallaig and to Skye.
A style of holiday which has changed little over the years and retains its popularity.
NORMA SHEPHERD takes the ferry trip to the Continent-but not on the familiar cross-Channel short trip to France. Hers is more of a mini-cruise from Plymouth all the way to Santander in northern Spain. Is it worth the extra hours at sea - and the extra cost - to get yourself and your car all that distance?
For many years a winter sunshine holiday long-distance meant the Caribbean. Although East Africa's beaches were tempting they couldn't compete in terms of package holiday prices. Now a price breakthrough has been achieved and JOHN CARTER reports from Kenya on the exciting combination of seashore and safari.
In the studio John Carter and Norma Shepherd have the latest news and views of the travel and holiday scene.

Michael Barratt asks some ' Ruglonians' how they will be spending Hogmanay, what their hopes are for 1980 and invites them to choose a New Year hymn to be sung by local choirs and congregations in Stonelaw Church. Praise God for he Is kind (St John); His large and great dominion (Montrose);
Make me a captive. Lord (Ich Halte
Treulich Still); I need thee every hour; in heavenly love abiding (Penlan);
Jesus my lord, my God (St
Chrysostom); Come down, 0 love divine
(Down Ampney); March on my soul with strength (Christchurch).

Do we have the right to choose to die? In the successful West End play Whose Life is it Anyway?, Ken Harrison , a sculptor who has had a road accident and is paralysed from the neck down, decides his life is so reduced that he doesn't want to live. The play is about his struggle to convince the hospital staff that his decision is balanced, that he is not disturbed and that they should morally accept his right to choose. A fictional situation, but what of real life? Most people believe that if they were that disabled they, too, would want to die. But do they? Do people as active, capable and self-aware as KEN HARRISON ever reconcile a bright mind to a life of helplessness and dependancy?
Tonight's Everyman compares scenes from the play with stories from real life and examines the last right-the right to choose between life or death.

Everyman editor WILLIAM NICHOLSON
A profile of Clint Eastwood , the biggest box-office star in the world, in which he talks to IAIN JOHNSTONE with Richard Burton ; Sergio Leone , director of A Fistful of Dollars; Don Siegel , director of Dirty Harry; Pauline Kael , film critic of The New Yorker; Dilys Powell , of the Sunday Times; and extracts from some of his films including Rawhide, The Good, the Bad and the Ugly, Where Eagles Dare, The Outlaw Josey Wales and The Enforcer.
Quite apart from his popularity as an actor, EASTWOOD has emerged as an all-round force in the cinema. His production company has made more than a dozen features and he has directed five of them, the last of which, The Outlaw Josey Wales, was voted by American critics into the top ten list in 1976.
