The Hot-blooded Dinosaurs
There is a revolution happening in the world of dinosaurs; all our ideas about them are being challenged. They were not slow-moving cold-blooded reptiles, but agile, intelligent and hot-blooded, like mammals. Where did dinosaurs go? It's now claimed they didn't all die out. Their descendants are alive and well and living all around us today!

A series of ten programmes 7: Riflemen All
Introduced by Christopher Roads
To realise the full potential of the military rifle, breech-loading instead of muzzle-loading and magazine capacity in place of single shot were required. Many a weird and wonderful form of breech-loading was tried and when the choice was made, the British found themselves in the 1870s with a rifle - the Martini-Henry - that could not be properly adapted to magazine loading. But they fought the First World War with one of the finest rifles ever used - the SMLE-that fooled the Germans into believing they were facing machine guns instead of rifles! Narrated by DUNCAN CARSE

Francesco Rosi 's glossy, fast-paced political thriller was acclaimed both by critics and cinema-goers on its London release this year. Inspector Rogas is called to investigate the murder of a Public Prosecutor in Naples. While he is there, a judge is found dead on the motorway. When a second judge is shot, the Chief of Police starts looking for political dissidents but Rogas is convinced that there is a personal link between the crimes.
An exciting, fascinating and tantalising experience. (SUNDAY EXPRESS) Brilliantly structured. (THE GUARDIAN) Acting of remarkable power.
I couldn't take my eyes off the screen.
