MAKE WAR ON WINTER
The first snow of the winter often brings chaos to roads in Britain. Cars and lorries skid to a stop; buses stay in the garage. The cost to the country in absence from work and undelivered goods can be counted in millions of pounds.
Whose fault is this? Weather men with inaccurate forecasts? Local authorities with too few snow ploughs? Or motorists using the wrong tyres and the wrong kind of driving?
Wheelbase looks for some answers at the 1969 Winter Conference at Berchtesgaden in the Bavarian Alps, where the world's leading experts on snow-clearing have been meeting to demonstrate how the right methods and machines can make war on winter and keep the traffic moving.

Sir Michael's choices include Alexander Woollcott 's account of Mrs. Patrick Campbell's first night in The Second Mrs. Tanqueray. Sir Michael contributes his own prologue, and also a poem to celebrate his birth written by his actor-father.
Sir Michael's choices can be described as popular in the best sense of the word. Authors are Coleridge, Robert Graves , T. S. Eliot , Hans Andersen , Katherine Mansfield , Wordsworth, Belloc, and Kipling.
Incidentally this is the only programme in the series where our stars break into song, which they do in the setting of an anonymous poem collected by W. H. Auden.
A further series of Evenings will be televised shortly, with Lady Asquith, A. J. Ayer , Alan Bennett , Lord MacLeod, and Alistair Cooke.

A man falls in love with a married woman, and elimination of the husband is his first concern-he dreams of the perfect murder.
This stylish thriller which was awarded the Louis Delluc Prize in 1957 was Louis Malle's first feature; he has subsequently worked with Jeanne Moreau on three other films, Les Amants, Le Feu Follet, and Viva Maria ! Tonight's film has a neat, crisp plot of which Agatha Christie might have been proud and the denouement contains a nicely ironic turn.
David Holmes looks back over the past week In Parliament and introduces reports on big debates in both Houses, questions to Ministers, significant moves behind the scenes, and the effects of M.P.s' work inside and outside Westminster
