The big interest in this year's richest (ÃÂ£50,000) 101st Open centres around Jack Nicklaus. Can he grab the 'grand slam'? He took the US Masters in April, the US Open last month and, depending on the outcome at Muirfield, next month he can complete a clean sweep in the US PGA championships in Michigan. News of all the 150 qualifiers is reported from Muirfield by Harry Carpenter.

Part 3 in the eight-part series Grand Strategy of World War II
Presented by Michael Howard
1941. Hitler has abandoned his plans for a cross-Channel invasion, and faces the unpalatable fact that Britain - as stubborn as ever - will fight on, with America openly giving support. So to avoid being ground down in a war of material, Hitler must get the resources he lacks.
On 22 June Germany invades Russia, and the massive Blitzkrieg machine rolls eastwards. By December Hitler's troops are just a few miles from Moscow. But now the German Army is confronted by two underestimated factors - the severe Russian winter, and the Soviet concept of war-in-depth which is backed up by massive industrial centres deep in the Russian interior.
Tonight Michael Howard analyses why Hitler tackled Russia and thought he could win - why the drive on Moscow failed - and how he misjudged the situation of the Soviet leadership. He also presents films of 'Operation Barbarossa' (the code-name for the German drive into Russia) and the vital Battle for Moscow.
