In the footsteps of Tobias Smollett
In 1763 the novelist Tobias Smollett took the Grand Tour, from Boulogne to Paris, south to the Mediterranean, and across to Rome-hating most of what he saw. In this film William Fox follows Smollett's route and written account of the journey. The words are 18th-century. The camera looks at places as they are today.

A series of BBCtv programmes which viewers have particularly asked to see again. Tonight:
The Secret Battle for Heavy Water Thirty years ago nine saboteurs completely destroyed the heavy-water stocks at the hydro factdry in Telemark in German-occupied Norway. Wrote Churchill - ' What rewards are to be given to these heroic men? ' Tonight's film tells the story of an undercover war, which ended with the sinking of a ferry in a Norwegian lake, fought to prevent the possibility of a German atomic bomb.
A beautifully photographed film, a Jascinating documentary. (THE TIMES) The most gripping account of sabotage.
It recaptured the excitement of the operation and its cold courage with a fidelity that clenched the stomach.
The documentary was a classic.

' Propositions to be forbidden:
That the sun is immovable at the centre of the heaven, that the earth is not at the centre of the heaven and is not immovable, but moves by a double motion.'
(Holy Office of the Inquisition)
From the earliest times, Man has looked outwards from the earth and wondered at the movements of sun, stars and planets.
The programme hinges on the crisis of the scientific conscience in the person of the astronomer Galileo and in the rich cities of Venice and Rome, the scenes both of his triumph and his punishment. DR BRONOWSKI examines the record of his trial in the secret archives of the Vatican.
