A series of eight contemporary documentaries.
In the telephone directory the entry reads Samaritans, The (Befriend the suicidal), followed by a number. And a million people call the Samaritans every year. Befriending the lonely, desperate, and suicidal requires more than simple sympathy. There are techniques to learn, refined and perfected since The Rev. Chad Varah founded the organisation in his study at St Stephen's, Walbrook, 25 years ago.
This documentary follows a group of volunteers who wish to become Samaritans. Over five weeks, in lectures and role-playing, they learn how to deal with the practical joker, and the obscene caller, but most of all the hundreds of thousands at the end of their tether - on the end of the line.
A serial of the Plantagenet kings in 13 episodes.

Anthony Dowell introduces two ballets by SEORGE BALANCHINE danced by the New York City Ballet
Created in 1934 when Balanchine went to America, this ballet came to life in the classes of the School of American Ballet where Balanchine choreographed various sections to fit the number of pupils present. Set to TCHAIKOVSKY'S 'Serenade for Strings ', it captures perfectly the romantic and elegiac quality of the music. Soloists
Karin von Aroldingen, Susan Hendl Sara Leland , Kay Mazzo Jean-Pierre Bonnefous Peter Martins Episodes
Premiered in 1959, this ballet is in four movements to music by WEBERN. It is another example of Balanchine's understanding of the music he works with, his ability to reflect, almost to ' visualise ' the score. In contrast to the romantic Serenade, this is a work of Balanchine's modern classicism. Soloists
