Setback before Winter
The British Trans-Arctic Expedi tion are at the halfway stage of their journey. The season's sledging programme is over and they are drifting now on an ice floe 350 miles from the North Pole. Their home is a small, prefabricated hut. Here they will spend the long Polar night. Though they have crossed a thousand miles of difficult and often dangerous sea ice, they are behind schedule. Allan Gill , one of the four-man team, has injured his back and may not be able to continue the journey.
Two weeks ago a BBC team returned from T3, a floating ice-station 150 miles from the expedition's base. Prevented by the break-up of sea ice from reaching them, they talked by radio with the expedition's leader, Wally Herbert , who gave his own assessment of their chances.
In the studio to give their views are:
Sir Miles Clifford
Sir Vivian Fuchs and Colonel Andrew Croft three members of the expedition's management committee
Programme introduced by Magnus Magnusson
Film cameraman, Charles Stewart

A new series of profiles on the life and work of artists of inter national stature
Directed by ROGER GRAEF
Produced by ALLAN KING ASSOCIATES
Rufino Tamayo is a Mexican painter in his late sixties. Half-Indian, he came to Mexico as a boy and worked as a street seller. He began painting seriously at the time of the Mexican revolution when it was Government policy to abolish the Spanish influences and re-create the Aztec as the basis of Mexican culture. He worked at this time as a recorder of pre-Columbian objects, and the work he did here was to influence him later. The film attempts to capture the awkward and frustrating mystery of his canvases-and of Mexico itself.
