A natural history in 13 parts by David Attenborough
The story of life from the first primitive cells to the plants and animals that now live around us. 3: The First Forests
For about 3,000 million years life evolved only in the waters of our planet. Then, over 400 million years ago, tiny plants began to invade the land, followed by the first animals-the ancestors of scorpions, millipedes and insects. This programme shows how the plants and animals coped with the problems of life on land, and how their subsequent pattern of co-evolution eventually led to the development of flowers.

Mrs Van Hopper:
Omnibus takes a look into the breathless world of the exploitation movie.
Roger Corman was once the king of the horror film - his best-known were The Pit and the Pendulum, Fall of the House of Usher, Masque of the Red Death.
Now he's boss of his own' Hollywood studio, New World Pictures. He finds young directors, sometimes fresh out of film school, pays them a pittance and gives them ten days to shoot low-budget movies with titles like Night Call Nurses, Caged Heat and A Bucket of Blood ...
Yet youthful talent flocks to him: his discoveries include JACK NICHOLSON , FRANCIS FORD COPPOLA and MARTIN SCORSESE. And, as well as pushing money-spinners like Death Race 2000, his company distributes the work of Fellini, Antonioni, Bergman and Truffaut. This film presents a fast-moving, often hilarious portrait of this Svengali of the movie world.
