The programme in which the BBC hands over air time to the public. Tonight:
The Electoral Reform Campaign presents Democracy, Shamocracy? Christopher Chataway for the Electoral Reform Campaign takes a close and critical look at our voting system and shows how unfair and undemocratic it has become. Why do fewer people bother to vote nowadays? Can we improve things? And why are most MPs silent on the subject? These and other questions will be asked and answered by politicians, journalists, and some very famous voters.
Made by ERC for the Electoral Reform Society with the help of the Community Programme Unit.
A series of programmes made specially for audiences in the BBC regions and now seen for the first time throughout the UK. Tonight from BBC Wales Sutherland in Wales
A film in which the artist Graham Sutherland tells how he first became ' hooked and obsessed ' by the landscape of Pembrokeshire. For more than 40 years he has renewed his vision in the area where he first learned to be a painter.
In gratitude the artist and his wife have given to Wales the great collection of paintings and drawings now housed at Picton Castle, near Haverfordwest. There, and in the countryside around, GRAHAM SUTHERLAND presents a unique account of his work and its inspiration.

Robert Vas's Orders from Above is a truly harrowing and shaming j'accuse. (SUNDAY TELEGRAPH) Between 1944 and 1947 the British and American Governments handed back to Stalin a great many Russians - P o Ws, civilians, women and children-who were captured or liberated by the Western Forces. Our authorities were well aware that to many of these people repatriation might mean certain death or years in Stalin's labour camps; that most of them were eligible for political asylum. Yet they carried out the policy of forced repatriation - and kept it secret for nearly 30 years.
For the politicians who made the decisions it seemed a diplomatic and military necessity; for the repatriated Russians: ' a great betrayal '; for the British soldiers who had to carry it out (as one said) : 'it stank of Belsen and Dachau'.
Now the controversy raised by the first showing of Robert Vas's film has been fanned by revelations in a new book Victims of Yalta. Narrators
LYNDON BROOK , PETER COPLEY
