Amin Ali wouldn't take no for an answer. A teenage immigrant from Bangladesh, he hadn't a penny to his name but he wanted to open his own small restaurant. He worked as an underpaid waiter - to learn the trade. But when the time came no bank would give him the necessary security.
But he stuck to his ambition to do something new for Indian cuisine, and the breaks came. Or was it plain persistence? In just five years he's opened four restaurants. And none of them is small. Presented by Harold Williamson Film editor DAVID LEE

A Revolution Remembered
Narrated by Michael Bryant Thirty years ago this week the Hungarians rose against communist oppression and the Soviet occupation of their country. For five days an untrained army of students and workers fought the Red Army for control of the streets of Budapest and the right to choose their own way of life.
Cry Hungary is the story of the revolution told by some of those who took part, among them:
Danny Benedikti , now a taxi driver from Oldham, then a 16-year-old apprentice with a machine gun;
Lucy Szalay , now in the USA, then a schoolgirl who was shot by the Secret Police;
Stephen Vizinczey , writer, then a student organiser;
Greg Pongratz , now a farmer in Arizona, then the Commander of the Corvin group whose young army inflicted such damage on the Russians it became a legend. They and others remember their revolution and salute the friends who were among the 20,000 who died.
