A personal view by James Burke in ten parts 6: Credit Where it's Due
When 'Rule Britannia' was written in 1740 fine weather, bumper harvests and slave plantations were putting more and more money into the pockets of the English aristocracy. It took a group of religious fanatics using the Dutch banking system to work out what to do with all the cash.
By the time these social outcasts had finished investing other people's money into their own profit-making plans, the old rural England had gone for good. Modern commercialism had arrived. In its wake packhorses gave way to a mass movement; afternoon tea became a five-course meal; and the Scottish distilleries provided the drive to turn the landscape inside out.

The last two semi-finalists will be decided tonight as the last two quarter-final matches are completed. Hot favourite to win through this half of the draw is JIMMY 'WHIRLWIND' WHITE, beaten finalist last year and recent winner of the Irish Masters over ALEX HIGGINS , although he will probably have to overcome No 2 seed TONY KNOWLES , who is not in his best form this season. The experts say colourful Canadian
KIRK STEVENS (4) should have an easier passage through to the semi-finals as he completes his quarter-final match this evening, which could be against either
WILLIE THORNE or an off-form

by Barbara Castle with Donald MacCormick
The last years of Barbara Castle's Parliamentary career at Westminster were to be the most hectic and frustrating time of her life. As Secretary of State for Social Services in the Labour Government of 1974 she faced a bitter pay dispute with the doctors, had to implement the party's controversial election pledge to abolish pay beds in the National Health Service and introduce a new pension scheme.
In the last of four programmes she recalls the extraordinary moment when Cabinet Ministers were allowed freedom to oppose the Prime Minister's recommendation for a 'yes' vote in the Common Market referendum.
In 1976 Harold Wilson resigned, the new Prime Minister, Jim Callaghan , sacked Barbara Castle , and she returned to the back benches. In 1979, at the age of 69, she started a new phase of her life as a Member of the European Parliament, to which she was re-elected in 1984.
