Australia is now recognised as a producer of high-quality cinema. Starting next week BBC2 provides a season of films from contemporary drama to thrillers and comedy.
First of three programmes with Desmond Wilcox 1: The Rage
He was gunned down by a thief during an armed robbery. His assailant was sent to prison for life and Philip Olds found himself serving a life sentence of his own - in a wheelchair.
Bitterness and rage filled his life. Then he heard of 'miracle' experiments being conducted in America. The paralysed could be made to walk, with a computer and electric shocks. Philip Olds was determined to become the first British guinea pig on the experimental programme, even though it could fail - or kill him. For him, the preferable alternative was suicide:
'I've been robbed of death.
I'm a cripple. But I don't have to accept it,' he said. Talking to him was like a conversation with a blow torch. His irony takes the skin off you. It stuns you that a man who used to plod the beat can produce this dramatic effect.

with Dr Michael O'Donnell Fighting Back
If present trends continue,
Britain will soon be the world leader in deaths from coronary heart disease. The
'plague' will be more virulent here because other countries have started to fight back. In the last of this series, Michael O'Donnell investigates some of the major campaigns being fought in the United States. If Britain achieved the same reduction in heart disease, 40,000 lives a year would be saved.
