Michael Wood together with Sarah Greene launches a major project to mark the 900th anniversary next year of William the Conqueror's Domesday Book. It will create a new 20th-century Domesday Book, using the most modern information technology on interactive video discs.
More than a million people from over 12,000 schools and other organisations are to help compile a contemporary snapshot of life as they see it. This will become a unique source of facts, figures, graphics and photographs prepared by the communities it depicts. Combined with data from national and official archives, it will make information about Britain more easily available to everyone than ever before. Tonight's programme launches a national photographic competition. Film directors

Tony Hancock committed suicide in Australia in 1968. From 1954 to 1961 he was one of the most acclaimed and certainly the most popular of BBC radio and television comedians.
This film celebrates the years when Hancock, 'the lad 'imself, was at his peak. It includes many extracts from some of his most memorable half-hours including Twelve Angry Men, The Ladies' Man, The Radio Ham, The Bowmans and The Blood Donor.
The film looks back on Hancock's career in the company of his friends and collaborators, among them scriptwriters Alan Simpson and Ray Galton, radio producer Dennis Main Wilson and BBCtv producer Duncan Wood, along with Bill Kerr, Patrick Cargill, Hugh Lloyd, Patricia Hayes and Eric Sykes.
