Richard Mulhearn , Travelling Showman
Richard Mulhearn is a humorous, happy and trusted man, a leader of a sort in a fairground community which remains as closed and unequal as it was in his childhood 50 years ago. It is a community where people keep their opinions to themselves and their takings a tight secret; they arrange their children's marriages and work almost from the time they can walk. The film, following Richard and his Helter Skelter through a week of ups-and-downs. gives an insight into a life which usually turns only a public face to the outside world.

The Compulsive Communicators
By any reckoning, we humans are the most adaptable and influential form of life that has evolved so far on this planet. Furthermore, our emergence from asimple hunter wielding stone tools to a sophisticated human using electronic technology has happened at break-neck speed. This has led some people to believe that our unique talents could never have been achieved by the ordinary processes of evolution. Are we something of a miracle standing apart from the rest of creation?
DAVID ATTENBOROUGH traces our roots and searches the African plains, the jungles of Borneo, the French caves and the ancient cities of Iraq for crucial clues that help to explain how and why we have come to dominate life on earth.

This week: Caulis, Bacon and a Slice of Bread
The caulis come from Devon. In winter WILLIAM TUCKER 'S farm is one of the few places in Britain where they can be grown. He can pick, pack and distribute his produce to many parts of Britain within 24 hours - at a price.
The bacon comes from ALAN JACKSON , the chirpy Yorkshire-man from Cleveland Hills who takes 200 pigs to market every week. He started 25 years ago on an allotment.
And the slice of bread - well 50 per cent of that comes from America.
The Cauli, the Bacon, and the Slice of Bread, each have their own production problems. In their different ways they've all been affected by the Common Market. Jeremy James and Nick Ross investigate.

Narrated and conducted by Bernard Keeffe
Puccini is the undisputed box-office king of the opera house. There is hardly a theatre in the world, from Stockholm to Sydney, that can survive a season without putting on one of his three best-sellers - La Bohème, Tosca or Madame Butterfly.
What is it about his music that has made the public itself decide this? In this informal workshop-style programme for Opera Month BERNARD KEEFFE concentrates on the masterly dramatic timing, the cunning choice of libretto and the melodic appeal and orchestral craftsmanship that distinguishes Puccini's operas. with Peter Glossop (baritone)
Josephine Barstow (soprano)
Adrian de Peyer (tenor) and with Colin Huehns (boy soprano) and Simon Mastcrton-Smith (bass) Royal Philharmonic Orchestra leader ASHLEY ARBUCKLE
