Beef in beer, Pork braised with apples and cider

A series of six programmes tracing the major historical influences which formed the English character and affected the landscape of England from Roman times to the Norman Invasion.
The collapse of Roman rule in Britain offered rich pickings to the Angles, Saxons and Jutes from Northern Europe, who had come first as mercenary soldiers and then as brutal conquerors themselves. Yet later they also developed a settled, prosperous regime of government, changing the English landscape in a new way, and leaving traces behind them of a pleasant, rich culture.
Presented by Prof Barry Cunliffe from Harting Downs, Sussex

Rt Hon Harold Macmillan in conversation with Robert McKenzie
The first of two programmes in which Harold MacMillan talks publicly for the first time about the events of 1961-1963, his last years as Prime Minister.
He faced many problems: the Common Market negotiations; economic difficulties and political unpopularity; threats from Khrushchev to Berlin and Cuba; the Profumo case; and finally his own sudden illness and resignation.
This week he describes the background to de Gaulle's veto; his 1962 Cabinet changes which came to be known as 'the night of the long knives'; the Cuba crisis when the third world war seemed imminent; his close friendship with President Kennedy; and the successful signing of the Test Ban Treaty.
Rt Hon Harold
The second part of a special concert featuring Roy Williamson and Ronnie Browne. Among the songs: 'Johnny Cope,' 'MacPherson's Rant,' 'Hills of Ardmorn' and 'Rattlin' Roarin' Willie.'
