A film series about the untamed West in which a pioneer settler and his two sons fight to keep their hard-won cattle land in the lawless territory of California during the closing years of last century.
Johnny, blinded during an ambush, is rescued by a girl who cannot speak-and their position is desperate when the attackers return to hunt them down...
Dr Sam Poovy:
A programme about speech disorders in children
By the age of three a child should be able to say simple phrases. If he does not what is wrong?
Is he a late developer? Does he have emotional problems? Is he deaf? Or suffering from high-tone deafness?
Some children stutter, either slightly or very badly. Some difficulties cause a child to 'live in a world where everyone else speaks nonsense language'.
The programme shows how some of these disorders are treated and a children's specialist explains how they arise.
A new series starring Spike Milligan

Ballet devised by:
Scientists making measurements with a machine half a mile in circumference... engineers designing another similar machine five miles in circumference: this is high-energy physics at the European Council for Nuclear Research, CERN, near Geneva in Switzerland.
CERN produces nothing but spends Â£30 million a year investigating the ingredients of the nucleus, looking at particles only a ten-millionth of a millionth of an inch in diameter. CERN... the very big in pursuit of the very small.
Tonight's film looks at the landscape of CERN and its physicists and concludes that the day of the gigantic act of faith is not yet over.
Introduced by Mel Oxley with James Cameron, William Rushton and talk of this and that
