A report by Christopher Brasher
Once, the people of the Highlands and Islands of Scotland owed their allegiance to one lord - the Lord of the Isles. Now, in the 1980s, things are very different. A report from the misty Isle of Skye, where in the past few years several thousand acres have changed hands.
The new lairds are a very mixed bunch - a merchant banker, a government agency, a Dutch cattle dealer and an internationally famous rock star.
CHRISTOPHER BRASHER meets some of the new landlords, finds out how they are managing their new estates and asks whether or not some control should be exercised over wilo can become a laird.

International Football from Wembley
England v Spain
Spain, host nation for the 1982 World Cup finals, will provide a difficult test for Ron Greenwood 's side before the crucial qualifying match against Romania next month. But England's record against the Spaniards is good: they have won the last seven internationals in succession, the latest by two goals to one, during the European Championship finals
Spain's Luis Maria Arconada comes to Wembley for the first time with a reputation as the continent's best goal-keeper. Can he keep out England's forwards? Commentator BARRY DAVIES
As well, news of how other home countries fared in their World Cup games today. In Glasgow, Scotland were in action against Northern Ireland in a match which could decide which of them qualifies from Group 6; while in Group 3 Wales, with maximum points from three games so far, were playing Turkey in Ankara. The Gillette London Marathon
The first-ever running of this event has attracted a huge entry from athletes of all ages and abilities. The total of 7,500 runners will line up in Greenwich for the start of the 26 mile 385 yard chase through the streets and parks of London.
