Church bells ring to mark the New Year, to celebrate a wedding, to wake the congregation and call them to worship, or just to please the bellringers.
Tonight, they summon hundreds of campanologists to St Martin-in-the-Fields in London's Trafalgar Square to sing their favourite hymns and tell their tales. Pam Rhodes learns the craft, visits a bell foundry and climbs the dusty stairs of church towers from
Derbyshire to Somerset.

To Give or Not to Give
Would you rescue a stranger at the risk of your own life? What makes you either an altruist or a bystander?
Professor Sam Oliner was rescued and hidden from the Nazis in Poland during the Second World War and has devoted his life to studying why ordinary people risk their lives to save others. He has collected
700 accounts of people who rescued Jews in the war and, by comparing these rescuers with their neighbours who stood by and did nothing, has begun to trace an outline of the altruistic personality. Producer Angela Kaye Editor John Blake

The Nobel Prize has long been synonymous with the greatest achievements and ideals of this century.
This series of four programmes chronicles the achievements of the most famous of prize winners, but begins with the man who founded the awards.
1: The Dynamite Bequest
Alfred Nobel was the classic dedicated scientist. Ostracised by his family and friends, he gained enormous wealth from his great invention - dynamite. He bequeathed his fortune to the development of peace and intellectual fulfilment. Archive film illustrates the early, uncertain beginnings of the Nobel Prize - years when major literary figures such as Tolstoy and Ibsen were turned down in favour of minor writers who were sure to accept. Producer Juliet Miller
Executive producer David Wickham
