To non-musicians a harpsichord may seem antiquated, tinkly and irrelevant. But more harpsichords are now being made than at any time since the 18th century. Philip Ledger, musical director of the Aldeburgh Festival and himself a fine harpsichord player, explains why this instrument, with its two keyboards, four sets of strings and seven pedals, produces a sound like no other.
But even after the most meticulous construction, harpsichords need expert attention. Malcolm Russell demonstrates some of the effects that a tuner can achieve when preparing an instrument for a special performance.
Money-the force behind so many of our actions: loving and hating, hiring and firing, living and starving, or just piling it up. The people, the stories, and the action behind the one commodity no one can do without - money.
Together with the Money-Minder - a regular feature with up-to-the-minute news of the Stock Market: the rise and fall of shares, the bulls and the bears. What is it all about? A weekly look at the investment world.
On the last Saturday of September streams of cars lined the narrow country roads around Blandford in Dorset, bringing some of the 40,000 people who came to enjoy this 'steam spectacular' - a gathering of some 200 working steam tractors, show-man's engines, roundabouts, organs, threshing machines and resurrected vintage farm machinery of all kinds.
Mike Oliver is the organising secretary of this unique charity show. We join him on a tour of the showground as enthusiasts raise steam to show the children and remind old-timers of that special combination of smoke, smut and polished metalwork which, barely half a century ago, was a familiar part of the country scene.

A Certain Inner Bloody-Mindedness... is the attitude of Richard Harries in this series of films about seven remarkable individuals who believe that in the 1970s they can achieve something that really matters to them.
Richard Harries is a young Anglican priest. He teaches theology at Wells in Somerset, surrounded, he believes, by luxuries that are no longer necessary to the modern church. What really matters to him, as he prepares for the start of his own ministry, is that the church of the 1970s will become more and more involved in big social issues like housing, unemployment, racial discrimination. Christian love will not be enough. A certain inner bloody-mindedness is needed to get things done.
The second of three films directed by Alain Resnais
Starring Delphine Seyrig, Giorgio Albertazzi
Acclaimed as a masterpiece by some and derided as a hoax by others, Alain Resnais's second feature remains one of the most controversial films ever made. Scripted by novelist and film-maker Alain Robbe-Grillet, it explores in time and space a mysterious relationship between two people who may or may not have known one another intimately before.
