Behind the Scenes
This weekend at Rainhill, on the line from Liverpool to Manchester, a spectacular three-day railway pageant will celebrate 150 years of inter-city travel, and the triumph of Stephenson's Rocket at the Rainhill Locomotive Trials of 1829. In this programme, recorded on the eve of the first day, Brian Redhead goes behind the scenes to see final preparations being made to replicas of Rocket, Novelty and Sans Pareil, and over 30 historic steam locomotives and their trains, and to meet some of the people closely involved in this unique event.
David Jenkinson of the National Railway Museum - a major contributor of exhibits - takes us inside some magnificently-restored coaches.

You wouldn't believe me if I told you
How much fun we have round here
We could go for a drive
But we don't have a car W

And end up with a psycho Looking for a fight
It's all part of the fun
Of being young and alive.
We can show you a good time!

Thirty-four new towns have been built in the United Kingdom since the last war. They attract suspicion, praise, and denunciation. Writer and teacher COLIN WARD is a passionate observer of the urban environment, and in this film he sets out to discover which of these responses is just. What sort of life do people lead in the new towns? Are new towns expensive failures or the sole success of British post-war planning?
In Harlow, Peterlee and Runcorn he hears from architects, ' first generation' residents, and their children who have known no other home town.
At Milton Keynes , the youngest and biggest of the new towns, he examines its reputation as the 'Muhammad Ali ' of the new towns - brash, self-confident, but perhaps a winner.
... a cluster of fascinating insights into the changing patterns of British life. (DAILY MATI.) Executive producer CHRISTOPHER MARTIN Produced by DAVID HEYCOCK
"Make just a ripple, Come on, be brave, This time a ripple, Next time a wave!"
- runs the lyric of 'Everybody says don't', a song by a lyricist and composer who has never lacked the courage to make ripples - or waves for that matter - in the course of his adventurous career. From West Side Story in 1957 to Sweeney Todd opening in London this summer, Stephen Sondheim has lifted the Broadway musical clear of its saccharine conventions and endowed it with a fresh humour and intelligence.
Tonight, in the fifth of this series of eight conversations, he talks to Bernard Levin about the challenges and pitfalls of working in this uniquely American medium.

Niels, science editor of a daily newspaper, asserts in a television interview that he would accept the sacrifice of a human life if it would prevent the use of nuclear technology in Denmark. Unfortunately, he is taken at his ill-considered word by another opponent of nuclear energy and Copenhagen becomes the target of an escalating and bizarre terrorist campaign.

When a ferry-boat is rammed by the mystery ship The Ghost, only two of its passengers are taken on board - Ruth, an escaped convict, and Humphrey van Weyden, a novelist. They join a crew terrorised by ' Wolf ' Larsen, the sadistic captain of the ship. Larsen's main victims are the new arrivals and the cabin boy, Leach. In a desperate attempt at survival, all three determine to escape the private version of ' hell ' that the tyrannical captain has created on board The Ghost. Edward G. Robinson gives one of his most remarkable performances as Larsen, the self-educated egotist whose obsessions and cruelty can only end in disaster.
