'All my life I've cheated to get what I wanted,' declares Lady Skelton, who, bored with her marriage to a country squire, turns to highway robbery for excitement. Her adventures lead to encounters with the notorious Captain Jackson, and a love-affair which ends in murder. This classic period adventure shocked press and public alike, and the film became one of the greatest British box-office successes.
Produced by R. J MINNEY Written and directed by LESLIE ARUSS

Sir Ralph Skelton:
Presented by Sir Huw Wheldon
On a cold February night in 1944, two British frogmen crawled on to a Normandy beach from the freezing sea to take samples of sand for scientific analysis from under the noses of German sentries. It was one of the most audacious of all the incredible operations that went into the planning of the Allied invasion of Europe. Throughout Britain during the 12 months before June
1944, men had been searching for the weak points in the vast German defences - all to ensure that D-Day, when it came, would be successful. The late Sir Huw Wheldon , then a major in the 6th
Airborne Division, landed with his unit on 6 June to help defend the left flank of the invasion force against counter-attack. In this programme he tells the story of the Allied plans and preparations which helped ensure the success of Operation Overlord.

Week by week as the events in the news unfold, moral dilemmas, controversies and questions are raised which cannot easily be compressed into the black and white summary of a bulletin or headline.
But these questions of public and private morality affect us all and inflame passions and prejudices many of us would rather ignore or try to hide. Reporter David Lomax looks at one of these issues, talks to those who ought to know and tries to discover what is at 'the heart of the matter'. Film editor MICHAEL ALOOF

France v Canada (Group C)
Live coverage of the whole match from Leon.
The first chance to assess the attacking flair of the French, who could become the first
European country to win the World Cup at a venue outside Europe. Tonight the European champions are going all out for goals against a Canadian team which former England goalkeeper Tony Waiters has guided to their first World Cup finals, but which remains, on paper anyway, the weakest nation in the Group.
Commentary team in the Campo Nuevo Stadium is BARRY DA VIES and BOBBY CHARLTON.
At half-time there are highlights of Brazil v Spain, plus the comments of the experts.
