Astrology is booming. Over 15 million of us read our daily stars - with a sneaking suspicion they may be right. More and more people are consulting astrologers for advice. But a group of eminent scientists has denounced astrology as a dangerous and irrational superstition.
Which view is right? What are the origins of astrology? How does a modem astrologer construct a horoscope chart? Does such character analysis and forecasting stand up to scientific tests?
"Behind the Horoscope" takes a cool look at the evidence.

The Rt Hon Nicholas
On 3 January 1956, five American missionaries flew out over the Ecuadorian jungle on the last stage of 'Operation Auca' - the epic attempt to evangelise the Auca Indians, regarded as the most ferocious tribe in the Amazon. Within six days, all five had been speared to death. Two years later, the widow of one of the missionaries and the sister of another decided to make their own attempt to reach the Aucas.
"Everyman" goes back to the scene of the killings; talks to the missionary women, and to the Auca killers themselves. The first of two films examines the impact of Christianity on the tribe that believed all outsiders were cannibals.
