June: The Spa Doctor
As the summer season starts, patients flock to the surgery of Dr Jean-Louis Bourdier in search of mud, massage and the Vichy water cure. But the doctor still finds time for his family, his entertaining and his Jaguar. And as a town councillor, he must attend the annual ceremony honouring de Gaulle's fight for a free France - especially significant to Vichy.
The best so far: informative, atmospheric, and full of distinct Gallic feeling. (DAILY TELEGRAPH) I enjoyed 'The Spa Doctor'very much ... it gave me a distinct yen to take a cure there. (DAILY MAIL) Series editor EDWARD MIRZOEFF Production JUDI CONNER (R)
As voting closes for the Design Awards, another chance to see a two-part documentary on design and how it shapes the world we live in. 1: Design in a Cold Climate Britain has a vigorous worldwide tradition of design. In spite of that fact, at home, design just doesn't seem to be taken seriously. Until recently industry, designers, even government, haven't seen the need to get together. The price is economic and environmental failure. This first programme unravels the tangled story - the conflict, the rewards, the penalties - and asks: What is 'good design'? Who is to say? Why is it needed? Executive producer CHRISTOPHER MARTIN

Six films about some of the 20th century's most enduring designs.
3: The Volkswagen Beetle
Hitler called it the 'strength through joy' car and he meant it to be one of the engineering triumphs of the Third Reich. But it was the British Army who put it into production after the war.
Rootes and Ford turned the car down; they didn't think it had a future. Twenty million Beetles later, it's still being produced - in Mexico.
How did the noisy, heavy, distinctly odd-looking motor car, with its roots in a Nazi past, become regarded as lovable, a family friend - the sort of car Walt Disney made films about - so that it really did become a 'people's car'?

To Catch a Falling Star
Astronomy is the earliest science known to man. But why does Britain go on researching into the origins of distant galaxies? And why does any basic scientific research need to be done at all? What's the commercial benefit from the science?
Horizon looks at the future of the Royal Greenwich
Observatory, caught in the middle of a 'rationalisation' of British research, and asks if the study of the stars, along with every other pure science, is something that one can afford not to do.
