The recruits of 480 Platoon face their first exercise in the field; they learn how to survive in the open and do their first 'stag' of sentry duty. 'Tabbing' or 'yomping', as the marines called it on the Falklands, becomes a regular means of transport. PRIVATE ANDY CUNNINGHAM commits one of the Army's cardinal sins and finds himself 'tapping the planks'. On the square, the platoon faces a critical test of muscle and memory. But things don't quite go as planned ...

The 1984 International Games for the Disabled
After years of rigorous training, the anticipation for 'Olympic' competition is as sharp for Ronan Tynan as it is for Steve Cram or Sebastian Coe. Ronan, a double amputee from County Kilkenny, who throws shot and discus and tells the odd story or two, will not be seen in Los Angeles; his games took place last month on Long Island, New
York. He was one of the 1,600 athletes from 46 nations who competed for their own gold, silver and bronze.
Cliff Morgan was there to meet competitors and coaches, and to hear their stories. Take, for example, the man who ran from Peking to Hong Kong to raise enough money to bring teams from both Hong Kong and mainland China to Long Island. Cameraman IAN KENNEDY

The First Million Miles
Alan Whicker looks back at some of the people, places and experiences on which he reported during his first ten years in television.
6: Skin like black velvet -and breasts that'll poke your eye out....
In the last of the series Whicker remembers some of his earliest Tonight stories. In Australia BILL HARNEY told him about his philosophy of least effort. He met the drover who killed poisonous snakes by cracking them like whips. He went on a drugs raid with axe-swinging Singapore police and in 1961 visited the birthplace of the atom bomb at Los Alamos. Back home there was the lady who rang the entire peal in her village church single-handed; and the mysterious case of Hexham street numbers.
