The celebrated tarmac gang are back -to a city without work in a series of five screenplays made on Merseyside. 2: Moonlighter featuring
Dixie Dean-father of four and once the proud foreman. Night work-of sorts-on the docks, a wife earning pin money and the dole on the doorstep, leave Dixie vulnerable to conflicting pressures from all sides. Not a situation to thank the rest of the boys for.
Sometimes hilarious and often gripping - but mainly a pathetic and moving evocation of a man at the end of his tether - Tom Georoeson gave a marvellous performance as Dixie.

The Foreign Legion was founded 150 years ago by King Louis Philippe of France; today it contains 8,000 men from 99 countries. Around its name has grown an aura of romance and mystique, fostered by P. C. Wren 's classic novel Beau Geste , and countless feature films. For the first time the Foreign Legion has opened its doors to a television team. This unique report explores the myth and the reality of the Foreign Legion today.

As costs go up and incomes down, many people have despaired of going sailing. Frank and Margaret Dye have beaten the ' budget' with their 16-ft Wayfarer dinghy, sailing it for over 50,000 miles from Scotland to St Kilda, and Norfolk to Norway. Taking the Top Sailing team, they return to their native coast of north Norfolk and show how rewarding dinghy cruising can be.
