The second in a series of six films.
Will Dawkins is one of two sons in a successful Hampstead medical family. He is a boarder at Westminster, in the heart of London, one of the oldest schools in the country. Will's day at school is packed with activity. He is studying for three A-Levels, and also manages to pursue a wide range of interests which reflect a mature and many-sided personality. He is captain of rowing, but fond of painting and playing classical guitar, and before going to Cambridge to study archaeology he hopes to finish a novel.

A series of six Chronicle programmes about the application of scientific research to the problems of solving the secrets of prehistory.
5: The House the Picts Built
In 1970, Anna Ritchie , an archaeologist from Edinburgh, was asked by the Department of the Environment to excavate a long low mound at Buckquoy in the Orkneys that was being eaten away by the sea. She expected to find a Viking longship buried there. Instead she found six ancient houses on top of each other. The fourth of these turned out to have been built by one of the most mysterious peoples of Britain's past, the Picts.
Chronicle tells the story of how, clue by clue, this house produced both a new picture of what happened when the Picts first met the Vikings 1,200 years ago, and also led on to the eventual excavation of some even older buildings that were not only the oldest standing houses in Britain but in the whole of North West Europe.

Fritz Lang's "Metropolis" is a science-fiction movie classic. With a cast of 36,000 it features spectacular set designs and special photographic effects that remain unsurpassed and, for "Tuesday Cinema"'s presentation of the film, an electronic music score has been specially prepared.
In Metropolis, city of the future, a life of unremitting labour has dehumanised the workers while the aristocracy live in luxury. When unrest begins to show itself, Fredersen, the Master of Metropolis, and his henchman, the mad genius Rotwang, introduce an ingenious secret weapon.
