This week: Edward Woodward as Francis Didelot's Commissaire Bignon investigates the case of "The Poisoners", dramatised by Derek Ingrey
Always unable to resist an appeal from a beautiful woman, Bignon becomes intrigued by the curious behaviour of a girl who first runs to him for help and then refuses to tell him anything about her troubles. Ignoring his superior officer's advice to leave the matter alone, he begins to make a few tentative enquiries and suddenly finds himself involved in a highly complex case. He discovers the secrets of the Dangeville family; their tangled emotions and the strange pattern of the life they live behind a facade of aristocratic and academic respectability.

Tonight's film in a season of outstanding feature films of the last ten years stars
Richard Harris, Rachel Roberts with Alan Badel, William Hartnell
An ambitious Rugby League player's attempts to win the trust and affection of a conventional young widow are marred by his inability to combine tenderness with masculinity.
Writer David Storey, director Lindsay Anderson, producer Karel Reisz, and actors Rachel Roberts and Richard Harris are in perfect harmony in this brilliant tale of an impossible love affair set in a northern industrial town. This Sporting Life remains one of the best films to emerge from the British New Wave.
Screenplay by David Storey from his novel
(Richard Harris can also be seen in Line-Up tonight at 11.35 on BBC2)

Reader Robert Dougall
with Derek Hart
Born near Manchester, Christopher Isherwood has mostly lived abroad. In the early 1930s he went to Berlin as an English teacher, like 'a camera with its shutter open.' His view of the rise of the Nazis resulted in two books-Mr Norris Changes Trains and Goodbye to Berlin, which were later adapted for the theatre as I am a Camera and Cabaret. Isherwood now lives in California as an American citizen. He writes novels, including A Single Man and A Meeting by the River, film scripts like Sailor from Gibraltar, teaches at the University, is a devotee of Hinduism and a pacifist. Yet of his own choice, he remains an outsider - a foreigner.
