A Pattern of Building Written and presented by Alec Clifton-Taylor
2: Richmond, North Yorkshire
' Shoes with heavy soles are what you'll need for seeing Richmond' says ALEC CLIFTON-TAYLOR , for the streets are like rocks, all local cobbles freely-gathered from the bed of the River Swale. Richmond was founded by the Normans 400 years before there was a Richmond in Surrey and their castle still dominates the town's clustered hillside homes. The town also has a delightful Georgian theatre, ' not perhaps the most comfortable in the country, but certainly the most authentic'. In a neighbouring park there is the unusual and rarely-seen Culloden Tower, built in 1747 in the Gothick style. Also in the Gothick style, but 100 years later, is Richmond's railway station, closed in 1963 but now a thriving garden centre.
Redoubtable Clifton-Taylor.... trenchant as usual. (SUNDAY TIMES) I guarantee you'll never look at a wall in quite the same way again. (OBSERVER) Executive producer BRUCE NORMAN Producer DENIS MORIARTY

A series of seven guides to birds 5: Coot
' Bald as a coot? ' - not really, but you can see why coots are alleged to suffer from a receding hairline. In fact, coots are aggressive, can nest in appalling weather conditions, and produce some of the most comical youngsters in the bird world.

The First Division? Presented by Eric Robson
How good is your local school? For an increasing number of parents, not good enough. They think that today's comprehensives are too large, that the teaching should be more traditional, and that the teachers should think more about the pupils, and less about their own pay and promotion. Also, they claim, nobody seems to give a hoot about discipline. The supporters of the state system say that most of the current criticism is ill-informed, and have facts to prove it.
But nevertheless, some parents are voting with their feet. Brass Tacks reports from Stockton on Tees, Northampton and Leicester on the build-up of grass roots pressure for new fee-paying schools. Can the state system thrive on a freedom for some to opt out, or should these new schools be positively discouraged?
