Highlights from the floodlit esplanade of Edinburgh Castle. This year the Tattoo celebrates the 350th anniversary of the Scots Guards with a spectacular display of pageantry, music and dance. Making its first appearance in Edinburgh is the world pioneer of military bands, the Mehter Band from Turkey, whose origins date back to the 13th century. And among the 120-strong Massed Pipes and Drums is the Band of Adelaide University, Australia. The Tattoo's 150 dancers, gathered from all over Scotland, perform a medley of Highland and Scottish country dances. The colourful spectacle of the Massed Bands of Her Majesty's Royal Marines lead into the traditional finale and the evocative lone piper.

The last of three classic Miss Marple stories, based on Agatha Christie's books, stars Joan Hickson.
Sent on a recuperative holiday to the tropical paradise of Barbados, Miss Marple is finding it rather a dull place where nothing seems to occur. But it soon turns out to be a Garden of Eden where a dangerous serpent lurks.
Producer George Gallaccio chose the film location for this Miss Marple story purely by chance, not realising that he was using the same hotel that Agatha Christie herself did 30 years earlier. He also discovered that the real hotel owners had provided Christie with the inspiration for two of the characters (Tim and Molly Kendal) in the book.
