During the last week the cream of Europe's women gymnasts have been competing in Great Britain for the first time. Forty-four girls from 22 countries contested the title and in this programme David Vine introduces highlights of the competition which ranged across the complete schedule of Olympic events.
Five years ago, Harold Williamson and a Man Alive team made a remarkable and frightening film about hospital casualty wards on Guy Fawkes night. Reaction was enormous. A shopkeeper threw his fireworks into the sea, public displays were cancelled. The programme was repeated in 1969 and 1970 and injuries continued to decline. Last year they were up again. John Pitman found children buying fireworks illegally, children throwing them at each other; Jeanne La Chard found harrowing scenes in hospitals. In the studio, Desmond Wilcox chairs a discussion on what must be done.

Three beautiful women, Jeanne Moreau, Catherine Deneuve and Claude Jade, are among those who take part in piecing together an extraordinary life-story in tonight's Omnibus.
Today Francois Truffaut is famous across the world as the director of films like The Four Hundred Blows, Jules and Jim and Fahrenheit 451, but significant periods of his early life were spent in a centre for juvenile delinquents and an army prison. Now aged 41, Truffaut feels that, perhaps for the first time, he can look back candidly at those events, at his childhood, his parents and at his career.
Tonight's programme was made while Truffaut was working on his latest film La Nuit Americaine which is shortly to be released in this country under the title Day for Night. 'It is a passionate film; it shows my love for films, for the period of shooting, for the work.'
