Meals on Wheels
If you've ever munched a British Rail bacon butty on a 125, spare a thought for those very early passengers who ate their own food in an open-topped carriage, 150 years ago, on the newly-opened Liverpool to Manchester
Railway. Today travellers are under cover - but has the food changed? Mark reports from the National Railway Museum in York and investigates Meals on Wheels from the Victorian picnic hamper to five-star luxury.

The Right Stuff
Course No 44 of the Empire Test Pilots' School at
Boscombe Down has ended. After ten months of the most intensive training any of the students has ever experienced, they are within sight of graduating as test pilots.
There is one last hurdle: the presentation. Each syndicate must present its findings on the aircraft tested to a critical audience of staff and experts. Despite all that has gone before, their future is at stake. Students can fail the course on the quality of their presentation alone. Narrator Andrew Faulds Film editors
