PATRICK MOORE or BRUCE FORSYTH ?
with Johnny Ball

This week Johnny finds
No Cockles, Just Muscles, Alive Alive Oh
Squeezing muscles, waving muscles, levering muscles, springing muscles and jumping muscles.
He'll be in deep water seeing how Archimedes showed his muscles, how to travel first class and still keep a balance and how to keep a camera steady when you're all over the place.
Meanwhile, flex your brain on this one: A round-the-world cyclist has travelled 15,951 kilometres. How many kilometres must he travel before his speedometer again shows a number which reads the same backwards? **

How many times have you wondered what happened to the people who made headlines in the past - and have since disappeared?
More than 50 years ago, a 14-year-old boy soprano recorded 'the most sublime record ever made'. It was 'Oh for the wings of a dove' by Master Ernest Lough. It sold eight million copies and is still one of the most requested records. This week DAVID JACOBS talks to Mr Lough; and goes to California to meet former Wimbledon champion Louise Brough.

A Risk Business Special
This autumn sees the launch of two cars vital to the survival of Britain's car industry. BL's long-awaited Metro is the first all-British volume car for a decade arriving at a time when two out of three cars sold here are imports, and when there are severe doubts that Britain can sustain its own car-making company, The new Ford Escort is the result of years of collaboration between
Ford in Britain, Germany and the USA. This multi-national car will determine the fate not only of Ford's European companies, out also of its debt-ridden American car operation.
As Michael Rodd reports, 1980 will be the turning-point in Britain s car industry, whilst Andrew Neil reflects the view from Detroit where today's American crisis could well spell trouble for Europe's small-car makers.
