For Canadians 1984 has been a year of reminiscence, with memories galore as the population celebrated a whole series of anniversaries.
It's 450 years since the French explorer Jacques Cartier discovered the St Lawrence river, 200 years since the thousands of British 'loyalists' fled north to settle there after the American War of Independence, 150 years since the city of Toronto was founded. In the first part of their Canadian tour HM The Queen and HRH The Duke of Edinburgh have been attending some of the celebrations to mark these significant dates in Canada's past. Reporter Kate Adie

The Bristol Showboat Saga The story starts in the summer of 1982, when three houseboat-owning neighbours in Chertsey dreamed up a scheme to launch a floating theatre-restaurant and sail it into Bristol Docks.
Vivian Stanshall (founder- member of The Bonzo Dog Doo-Dah Band), his wife Pamela (poet), and Peter Jackson (engineer) were the instigators, and with a bank m loan their dream became reality,
For two years Omnibus filmed the progress of the enterprise from Sunderland (where a German-built coaster was found and bought) to Bristol, where the Old Profanity
Showboat opened its doors to the public in May 1984.
En route they recruited further crew members. Some failed to stay the course. The vessel encountered many rocks and reefs - mechanical, financial, emotional. And the journey's not over yet ...

The Fourth Stage
E. R. Sethuram is a successful newspaper editor in southern
India. Approaching retirement, he is more and more attracted by the Hindu tradition of 'Sannyas' - renouncing the pleasures of life, leaving behind family, friends and all worldly possessions, to become a wandering monk. But how will his family react? And does he really want to embrace poverty and anonymity?
Everyman follows Sethuram as he wrestles with his decision, from his home in Bangalore, via a remote monastery in the hills, to the banks of the Ganges.
'In India, old age has always been a time for spiritual journeys. Not a time for just ruminating on the past, but something more challenging - new beginning.' Film editor TERRY GABELL
