The John Player League Yorkshire v Lancashire
Yorkshiremen are not renowned for their ability to accept defeat gracefully and when it comes to cricket they don't like it at all. The Lancastrians, on the other hand, cannot imagine ever entering into a match and being beaten by Yorkshire. Today it's the Roses Match and as usual there's more than just cricket involved.

'In this lovely land of Mareotis, full of villages and splendid churches, so abundant is the soil that wine is produced and is of such quality that it is racked and kept that it may grow old.' That was how, 2,000 years ago, the Roman geographer Strabo described the now desert land to the west of Alexandria.
Today land degradation is on a global scale. In the Sahara, for instance, since the beginning of this century an area the size of Britain, France and Germany has been lost to agriculture. Not because of any long-term change in climate but because of the impact of man. Local people say that Musa Jumbra is 100 years old. He lives in a village called Al Gitarat and it is dying. His family have moved to more fertile land long ago - or to the cities. Although he is not likely to hear about it, next month the United Nations holds a conference to try and tackle the problems of desert encroachment. What options do they have? For their decisions will affect us all - one person in seven lives in the semi-desert land and they manage a third of the world's livestock.

Filmed in Europe and America, it includes tape recordings from the age of nine and filmed performances from the age of 19, as well as his official New York debut. Zukerman plays music by ten different composers -among them Bach, Beethoven and Schubert.

Thirty thousand people attended the funeral of Joe Hill , an early campaigner for social justice in America, who was executed for a murder he almost certainly did not commit. This humorous, charming and beautiful film, made in English, traces his life from the moment he arrives in New York on an immigrant ship from Sweden, to its end in carefully-ground ashes strewn across the country.
