The first of five programmes 1: The Heart of England
' A Regional dish is a whole countryside '
In this programme Derek Cooper explores some classic English foods in the most English of counties, Hereford and Worcestershire. The beef, from the white-faced Hereford cattle, and the draught beer from Worcestershire hops, should strike right to the heart of every true Englishman. But do they? Are they the same as they used to be? Can you still get a pint of real ale?
DEREK COOPER sets out to discover, and on the way samples, the luxury of Evesham asparagus, the tang of Worcester sauce and the taste of the strange, boneless and increasingly rare river lampern.

11: Knowledge of Certainty?
Six million people were sacrificed to the belief that there is a final solution to every question. Information and knowledge are the property of every man but certainty belongs only to gods. The great achievement of physics in the 20th century has been to show that absolute certainty, in' science or outside of it, is beyond our grasp. When physicists formulated their Principle of Uncertainty in the pre-war Germany of rising Nazism they could not know that the ironies of history would lead them to confront the fiery reality of Hiroshima.
