Yellowcoat boys THE WEBB TWINS:
Death rays, space-based lasers, and computers smart enough to fight battles on their own-these are the exotic new weapons President Reagan has ordered his military scientists to perfect. They are designed to prevent Soviet missiles from striking the United States, taking the West into a new defence strategy beyond the balance of terror.
As the crucial Arms Control Talks resume in Geneva Tom Mangold examines how close to reality the President's vision has come, and whether the effect of the new weapons will be to end the fear of nuclear war, or destabilise still further the superpower game.

The complete story MARIO puzo's novel adapted for television in four parts starring
1901: Escaping from Sicily after witnessing the slaying of his family in a bloody vendetta, eight-year-old Vito Corleone arrives in New York. There, living in the Italian community, he drifts into a life of petty crime - the first step in a career that is to make him the most feared and powerful figure in America's underworld.
In this masterly re-shaping of his two Oscar-winning feature films incorporating footage not seen in the original movies, director Francis Ford Coppola transcends the basic story of gangsterdom and violence, creating a vivid portrait of Italian-American family life while examining the nature of power at its most evil and corrupt.
Screenplay by MARIO puzo and FRANCIS FORD COPPOLA
