A See-Saw programme

: The Chipperfield Safari

When the circus showman Jimmy Chipperfield and Lord Bath released 50 wild lions into Longleat Park in 1965 the press branded them as ' madmen'.
But the success of the safari park idea was born of generations of circus life. Jimmy was once a clown, juggler, wirewalker and circus manager. Today his daughter Mary is renowned as a tiger trainer-and his son John helped set up 27 safari parks and zoos across the world.
They filmed their own exciting record of circus life - and catching elephants and giraffes in the African bush.

: Songs of Praise

for Remembrance from Coventry Cathedral. On the night of 14 November 1940 the people of Coventry had to endure 11 hours of concentrated bombing by the German Luftwaffe. When they emerged from their shelters the next morning they found a city in chaos, thousands of homes destroyed, familiar landmarks gone and their Cathedral a smouldering ruin.
That same night British aircraft bombed the German city of Cologne. One of the men who flew that mission was Coventry-born Fred Devey. He tells Geoffrey Wheeler how the irony of that tragic coincidence completely changed his attitude to war. In the ruins of the old Cathedral the COVENTRY CITADEL SALVATION ARMY BAND accompany the people of their city in their Remembrance Day hymns.
0 God, our help in ages past (St Anne); 0 God of love. 0 King of peace; Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the Lord; Dear Lord and Father of mankind (Repton); Eternal Father strong to save (Melita); Where have all the flowers gone?; On the Resurrection morning; Abide with me (Eventide) Conductor IAN LITTLE

with Richard Baker
At the age of 17 Jean Seberg won a talent contest to become St Joan in Otto Preminger 's film. At 40, after tangling with the FBI, she committed suicide. Now three Americans and one English-man have come together to turn the story of this actress's life into a National Theatre musical. Tonight Omnibus talks to composer Marvin Hamlisch , writer Julian Barry , lyricist Christopher Adler and the director, Sir Peter Hall , about their fascination with Jean.
Also tonight, the cowboy sculptor Harry Jackson. One of the world's true eccentrics, Jackson spends most of his time in Italy, his subjects being the cowboys and Indians of the American West. Now he is working on his most ambitious project yet, a 30-foot high statue of the all-American hero John Wayne.

With one in seven of the adult workforce in Britain without work, life for more than three million people is a constant fight against boredom, depression and bankruptcy. What in a caring society should we be doing to help?
Janet Cohen talks to Professor Brian Griffiths , Dean of the City University Business School, London; The Rev Bill Morgan , who as Mayor of Merthyr Tydfil is continuing the fight against unem
. ployment in the Welsh valleys; and Barrie Sherman , former trade union official and author of The
CoUapse of Work. Plus a film report from Irvine New Town on the Ayrshire coast, glossily promoted as the key to the revival of Scotland's economy but now with an unemployment rate of 30 per cent.
