The Price Fixers
For two-and-a-half years almost every price increase has had to be approved by the Price Commission - a band of 700 civil servants monitoring industry's profits up and down the country. But what has price control done to stem inflation? Does the Price Commission actually save the British housewife any money?
James Bellini and Alan Watson examine the company books and Industry's claim that price control has been a costly mistake. With BILL KERR ELLIOTT and JOHN SWINFIELD

2: A New Heaven, a New Earth: The Tudor Renaissance Written and narrated by Roy Strong
The Tudor and Elizabethan age was a period of great social turmoil and artistic splendour. In this film ROY STRONG, director of the Victoria and Albert Museum , shows how those twin upheavals in English life, the Reformation and the Renaissance, were reflected in architecture. In the golden age of Elizabeth's reign, vast palaces for the new rich were built from the stones of ruined abbeys; state replaced church; and brick gave way to the marble of the Italian Renaissance.

(THE SCOTSMAN) "A superb piece of television, magnificently visual and filled with a terrible authenticity, Just Another Saturday was a triumph." (GLASGOW HERALD)
