In 1937 Michael Powell made a feature film - The Edge of the World - entirely on location on the remote Shetland Island of Foula. The story was inspired by the evacuation of the Island of St Kilda. A year ago Powell and members of the original crew and cast including John Laurie , returned to Foula to see what changes had occurred. They also made an introduction and epilogue for this showing of the original film.

2: The Lifeboat that Wouldn't Give Up
This film was made in 1970. The Daily Sketch called the story ' an epic of courage and seamanship.' One day during the last war, while the SS English Trader, aground on a sandbank, was being battered to pieces by huge seas, 44 men. huddled on her bridge, saw an enormous wave hit the approaching Cromer lifeboat and sweep half her crew overboard. They knew then they had little chance of being saved. But this was the legendary Cox'n Henry Blogg of the Cromer lifeboat to the rescue - in the lifeboat that wouldn't give up.

Where Nothing Happens Twice
What is a psychologist, what does he do?
Professor Liam Hudson of Brunei University, is best known for his work on 'convergers' and ' divergers '. He asked clever schoolboys such questions as ' How many uses can you think of for a brick?' If the boy put down lots of answers and didn't mind if some were crazy, violent or even obscene he could be labelled a diverger. But if he ruled out the less appropriate possibilities and simply wrote ' build a wall' he was probably a converger. Hudson found that convergers tended to become scientists, and divergers followed careers in the arts and humanities.
Each individual human mind is different, so the collection of reliable, scientific evidence about what makes people tick is not easy. Hudson searches for clues in sleep and dreams, in a piece of Chelsea porcelain, in patterns of marriage and divorce, and in the pages of Who's Who.

A Cable Pipe-Dream?
'People who take this into their home become addicted and can't leave it.' This is a box which not only gives viewers in Columbus, Ohio, a choice of 30 television channels but the chance of answering back as well.
The Japanese have gone a step further. With a camera in your living-room, you can be seen answering back. In Wiltshire, Swindon locals walk into a shop off the High Street, borrow a camera and make a film about- decrepit council housing - and the council can answer back. Around the world, as more homes are linked to cable, people are finding a different way to use television a way in which they can take part.
