The Weltklasse Games from Zurich
Introduced by DAVID ICKE and BRENDAN FOSTER
Can the record breaking possibly continue? If STEVE CRAM'S suspect leg has survived the Europa Cup, then expect him to be aiming to lower his own 1500m World Record.
There's also a superb supporting programme. The Americans traditionally send a strong team to this meeting and it's possible that the quadruple gold medallist Carl Lewis will make his first appearance in Europe this season. In addition Zurich has always had an attraction for SEBASTIAN COE , who still feels capable of mounting a challenge to Cram over his
Olympic winning distance of 1500m.

The Stanforth's maid:
Fifth of six documentaries about people of today.
'And the Band Plays on ...' On 11 February this year a coach carrying the RAF
Germany Band crashed into an aviation fuel tanker on a motorway near Munich. Nineteen RAF musicians died. Just over three months later, the survivors joined the massed bands of the RAF at a special concert before Princess Margaret at
London's Barbican Centre.
This film tells the story of the band's courage, humour and achievement in the weeks between - from the numbed first rehearsals after the i tragedy, and the survivors' apprehension at getting on a coach again, to coming to terms with the new musicians who have been drafted in, and the emotion of playing in public once again. 'They may be dead, but their memory will live on. We're saddened, yes, and miss them, yes, but it's time to remember the good times - an.d there were a lot.'
