The Real Bionic Man
Horizon's off in search of bionic man -looking at the State of the Art in artificial limbs, hearts, lungs, kidneys, livers and many other bits and pieces. Would six million dollars be enough for the complete kit? If it was. would it work? Or are the components of the human body just too complex for bioengineers to imitate? Detailed questions are put to various surgeons and to the real-life pilot,
Bruce Peterson , who survived the aircraft crash seen in the title sequence of the television series The Six Million Dollar Man. His story is eerily different from the fictional version.

Jimmy Pursey , the lead singer, has struggled to prevent these outbreaks but the violent and conflicting passions aroused at Sham concerts have placed him in an increasingly difficult position. sham's latest album That's Life portrays the pressures that face the kids who follow the band.
Arena this week re-creates scenes from that album and follows the story of one Sham concert which threatened to explode.
