Robert Kennedy :
The Last Best Hope?
Twelve years ago this week, SENATOR ROBERT KENNEDY was Shot in Los Angeles on the night of his victory in the Californian Primary. As the latest Kennedy bid for the White House also reaches its climax in California, Anthony Howard examines the personal promise and political potential of the second Kennedy to be assassinated. Was he the champion of the poor and oppressed or was he merely the heir to a legend and a dynasty? How much difference might it have made to America and the world if there had been a Kennedy Restoration in 1968? Among those looking back on Robert Kennedy 's contentious life and career - cut short at the age of 42 - are his widow Ethel Kennedy his son Robert Kennedy Jr Lord Harlech

Tonight's love story is one that broke all the rules. In the forbidding grandeur of the Vatican, a queen declares her love for a cardinal.
Since she was a child, Christina has been drilled in her duties as Queen of Sweden, and since she was a child no one has ever loved her. At the age of 29, she renounces her throne and her religion and flees to the Pope. There she finds not the welcome she expected, but an inquisition. And as a sceptical Cardinal Azzolino wrests secrets from her soul, Christina discovers love.
Screenplay by RUTH WOLFF Produced by ROBERT FRYER and JAMES CRESSON
