Tigris - The Sumerian Voyage of Thor Heyerdahl 3: Navigators
Tigris, damaged and needing repair, continues her voyage through the Arab Gulf linking ancient sites influenced by the Sumerians of ancient Mesopotamia. Heyerdahl argues that reed boats were the means that spread civilisation across the world from Mesopotamia, Egypt to Mexico, Peru and even the islands of Polynesia. But the Tigris journey itself is anything but plain-sailing.

' A lot of people think of a Brass Band as an " oompah " outfit with cloth caps and mufflers, just marching down the street in front of a big drum. But, of course, we're not like that at all; we are dedicated musicians.'
Dick Evans is professional coach with Dalmellington Silver Band in Ayrshire. In March this year he took them to the Scottish Championships to defend the title they won in 1978. Competition is the life-blood of brass banding and this film follows Dalmellington in their intensive preparation of this year's test piece ― Vaughan Williams's Variations for Brass Band - through to the final performance and the announcement of the results, given, of course, in reverse order ...

9: Squire and Parson
In the 17th and 18th centuries links between the Manor and the Church were strong. At Cottes- brooke in Northamptonshire, All Saints Church was fitted out with boxpews, three-decker pulpit and a private family pew for the squire. The interior here neatly delineates the social hierarchy of the village and provides a perfect picture of a country Sunday. The squire's authority was virtually absolute, and, in this the age of the amateur architect, his influence on the design of the parish church was growing too. At Little Stanmore in Middlesex, the Duke of Chandos demolished all but the tower of the church of St Lawrence and rebuilt it in the latest classical style. He commissioned the best artists he could afford to create a treasure house of a church that reflects not the corporate pride of the parish, but the wealth and status of one man.

Marvellous, isn't it9 They can make a gun capable of destroying a village 30 miles away. But they can't make a tiny surgical instrument small enough to save a man's leg. It's all a question of priorities, of course, but even so Hawkeye finds it a bit frustrating....

Wreckers in the Town Hall presented by Campaign for Demolition Control
'Councils cheat people out of their homes. You may think you have rights but many local authorities have found ways of getting round the law Our evidence shows that councils are destroying houses by deliberate blight and denying people their rights by deliberate deception, as a way of removing opposition to their plans.
• From the bitter experience of people who have suffered from these tactics, the Campaign for Demolition Control is finding ways of fighting for the survival of communities and their homes, and for the protection of peoples democratic rights.'
