A preview for tomorrow's re-entry and Splashdown of Apollo 15. The tragic deaths of the three Russian Soyuz 11 astronauts last month have served as a reminder of how dangerous this part of the mission can be.

Talking to Sylvio Narizzano and members of the National Film Theatre about his 35 years as a screen actor.
'When they write my obituary, I'd like to be regarded as just a serviceable actor of the day, cutting out all the trimmings...'
