For the 25th consecutive year, BBC Outside Broadcast cameras are at Aintree, covering the main races on all three days of the 1985 Seagram Grand National meeting. Since last year some of the familiar surroundings have disappeared - withered with age or ravaged by fire - but on the greatest steeplechase course in the world all the formidable fences remain. Today's first two featured races are on the Mildmay course.

The award-winning film story that touched the hearts of the nation - now a trilogy, to bring it up to date.
2: Marjorie's Quest
Marjorie Jackson has loved and cared for the Boy David through more than 50 operations in the past eight years. But his future is at risk because he has no papers, no identity, no legal status in America or Britain. So Marjorie decides to travel with the film team into the Amazonian jungle to see if she can discover the proof she needs to protect the Boy David's future.
It is truly one of the most moving and incredible modem -day fairy tales -a story of love, compassion, skill and, above all, the undaunting courage of a nine-year-old boy.
A remarkable documentary.
