The Great Train Revival
For years the world's railways steadily declined. Now trains are facing their biggest revolution since the discovery of steam and the age of the Iron Horse. The prospect - a railway revival in the 70s that may change our habits, even affect the place we live in. In Japan, there's a 130 mph train, going as fast as an airliner when it lands. It covers the equivalent distance between London and Edinburgh in just over three hours. British Rail plan to introduce a 150 mph train soon.
Speed pays. In Japan, Passengers have trebled in five years. When the super-train comes to Britain, cities like London, Manchester and Bristol will come within commuting distance of each other.
High speed too won't pose only technical problems. In France, train waiters are already attending special 'equilibrium' classes and psychologists say that the new trains will have to carry airline-type hostesses to reassure passengers.
Beyond the Iron Horse, scientists are working on even faster trains - trains without wheels and even trains that will blast off like rockets.

A Celebration by Angus Wilson
Charles Dickens, who died 100 years ago, was known in his own lifetime as The Great Inimitable. Never in the history of literature has a writer been so loved and respected during his lifetime - and after. The author of Pickwick Papers, Oliver Twist and David Copperfield was a person of many contradictions. Immensely high-spirited and energetic, he was also pessimistic about the state of Victorian society and could be hypocritical in his dealings with his fellow men.
In his celebration of Dickens, Angus Wilson, himself a distinguished novelist and lecturer, shows how the different threads in his life and character were reflected and resolved in his novels.
Patrick Moore examines the telescopes at Frank Acfield's back-garden observatory in Newcastle. Amateur astronomers - whether they have sophisticated equipment or simply use small telescopes or binoculars - can find out what is visible in the sky at night during the summer and where to find it.
