Sport has always been concerned with speed, with who can run, swim, ride or drive the fastest.
Daley Thompson, probably the greatest athlete in the world, looks at the art of sprinting and the ways in which runners improve their times.
June Croft, Britain's fastest lady swimmer, talks about speed through the water.
And we'll also be looking at some of Britain's youngest speedway riders at the King's Lynn school of Swedish star Olle Nygren. Introduced by Peter Purves, Daley Thompson and Janice Long

by BOB BLOCK starring Clive Dunn
Grandad is to judge the local beauty contest, but-if Mr Wat kins's niece doesn't win he's liable to stop Grandad's pay rise; if Dave Corby 's girlfriend doesn't win he's liable to stop his breathing; and if Mrs Brady 's granddaughter doesn't win she'll accuse Grandad publicly of fiddling the results!

James Hogg presents the latest news from London and the home counties, and Bob Wellings makes a visit to the border country to join The Fun of the Fair.
The second of three films: Sumo
An expectant roar goes up from the 5,000 crammed into the stadium. Across Japan, millions more sit transfixed in front of their televisions as two scantily-clad men, weighing 25 stones apiece charge each other across the earth ring. Seconds later, it's all over with the loser picking himself up from the dirt. To the newcomer, Sumo often seems ludicrous or repulsive. But Donny MacLeod soon finds himself enthralled by this ritualistic sport.

Fly with Von Drake
Donald Duck 's voluble Uncle Ludwig expends as much hot air as any balloonist in recounting the fascinating history of flight, from the legendary but luckless Icarus to more successful outer space efforts. Orville the seagull provides some humorous but un-requested help in this funny though informative combination of cartoon and archive film.
