5: Keeping a Record
The fundamental principles behind a database.
Black people in Britain form a small and relatively powerless minority of the electorate and the few who have joined the main political parties do not have equal opportunities with whites. Yet crude racism is only one of the obstacles they face: as important is the unconscious attitude of those who profess to be their friends. These are the findings of Political Parties and Black People, a Runnymede Trust report. It concludes that the parties cannot look for racial equality in society at large without first putting their own houses in order. Anita Bhalla talks to the report's author,
Marian Fitzgerald , to J. Gohel , the chairman of the Anglo-Asian Conservative Society, and to former parliamentary candidates Paul Boateng (Labour) and Zerbanoo Gifford (Alliance). Producer bish MEHAY

Six comics explore the roots of their humour.
Architecture, poetry, art and music were the formative influences on the aesthete known to millions as Kenneth Williams : the slum architecture of St Pancras where he grew up; the liquid poetry of his gran's fruity anecdotes; the art of the Marcel Wave practised by his hairdresser father; and the musical knees-ups of 'The Boot'.

For Remembrance from Portsmouth Cathedral Forty years ago today the battle for the liberation of Europe was at its height. Tonight in Portsmouth
Cathedral, close to where the invasion force set sail, a congregation drawn from service personnel both serving and retired, and from the people of the city, remember with gratitude all who gave their lives in war, and pledge themselves to work for peace.
On the Normandy beaches Geoffrey Wheeler talks to some of the men who landed on D-Day. And in Portsmouth he meets Sir Desmond Cassidi , now
Home Command, who was a young sub-lieutenant on D-Day. Lives were changed by the experiences of war. Alf Freeman , an Arnhem veteran, has built his present-day devotion to his invalid wife on the foundation of his war-time faith, while Curt Heinz
Friedrich, a former German soldier, had his life turned around as the result of a chance encounter with a British soldier in Normandy. All people that on earth do dwell (Old hundredth); For the fallen;
Seek ye first the kingdom of God; Abide with me (Eventide); 0 brother man (Londonderry Air); Eternal Father (Melita); Lift high the cross (Crucifer)

with Humphrey Burton The Classiest Juke-Box in the World
A century of music-making is celebrated in Omnibus tonight with the story of the Boston Pops. It is an orchestra with a unique repertoire - a blend of pop, jazz and classics -and that repertoire has brought the Pops enormous success both on disc and in the concert hall. The story of the Pops is also the story of Arthur Fiedler , their conductor for 50 years until his death in 1979. Tonight: the Fiedler years recounted, plus a look to the future with his successor
John Williams , composer of film scores such as Jaws, E.T. and Close Encounters. And helping to demonstrate 'the classiest juke-box in the world' are Dizzy Gillespie , Oscar Peterson ,
Sarah Vaughan , Wynton Marsalis and Itzhak Perlman.

A Passage to England
Nirad Chaudhuri is 86, and one of the most celebrated - and controversial - Indian writers alive today. He believes that the Western flirtation with Eastern spirituality over the past 20 years has been based on complete misunderstanding. In this film he tells the story of his life's journey in the other direction - his
'passage to England'-and explains the reasons for his current dismay at the state of the country.
