Buying a few cows and going into dairy farming would seem an ideal way for new farmers to get started. But it's not as simple as that. At least 50 people who've tried to do this have come up against a closed shop which makes it virtually impossible to get a foot in the door.
Behind it all is something called milk quotas. Ian Breach reports.
And Chris Baines announces a competition for viewers - with £10,000 in prizes.

Cliff Michelmore and Debbie Thrower report on the latest charity news.
Sarah Kennedy appeals on behalf of the Leukaemia Care Society, which offers advice, information and emotional support to leukaemia victims and their families.
The society urgently needs funds to replace 14 holiday caravans that it runs at resorts around the coast of Britain within easy reach of hospital centres. These holidays are always fully booked because they are ideal for sufferers whose natural immunity to infections has been destroyed by chemotherapy treatment. Please give what you can.
Donations should be sent to: Sarah Kennedy

from Ballina, County Mayo. It was in Roman Britain in the 5th century that St
Patrick had a vision in which he heard the voice of the Irish from 'beside the Wood of Voclut which is near the Western Sea' calling him to come and walk among them. At the beginning of the week which celebrates the saint's festival, Ian Gall visits the people of the west coast of Ireland where the folk memory of the saint lives on. In St Muredach's Cathedral, Ballina, choirs from the area sing their Songs of Praise. 0 come. and let us to the Lord:
Ag Criost an siol; For all the saints; Holy God, we praise thy name;
The King of love my shepherd is: St Patrick's breastplate; Praise to the holiest; Be thou my vision. Researcher JUDITH PEERS Producer JAMES SKELLY Editor STEPHEN WHITTLE BBC Northern Ireland

Moral issues are coming ever more into public awareness: the daily headlines proclaim as much. But where headlines deal in black and white the issues are rarely so simple.
Heart of the Matter seeks out such issues;

The television craft magazine presented by Sue Robinson.
'Think big' is the motto of Julienne Dolphin-Wilding, who makes giant garden furniture inspired by things nautical. The textures and patinas of weather-worn materials combine with the large scale to evoke an almost medieval grandeur. Sitting in one of her throne-like chairs 'either makes you feel very powerful or very childlike, depending on your personality,' says Julienne. Equally dramatic are the wall paintings of the first purpose-built Buddhist temple in Europe. In the London suburb of Wimbledon, a team of artists from Thailand have been working for three years to produce an epic cycle of paintings. Within the confines of traditional style and iconography, the murals incorporate images from the modern Western world - sometimes to startling effect! In the studio workshop, stained glass and fabric. Producer MARY SPRENT

Pulsars are among the most bizarre objects in the universe. They are very small, amazingly dense and spinning round rapidly. Astronomers have been waiting to see whether the supernova in the Large
Magellanic Cloud, seen in 1987, will produce a pulsar. Reports from the Cerro Tololo Observatory in Chile indicate that this may well be the case, as Dr Paul Murdin discusses with Patrick Moore.
