Stan and Ollie are engaged to burgle the house of the chief of police.
Every afternoon, as they returned from school, the children used to go and play in the Giant's beautiful garden until, one day, the Giant came back and built a high wall all round the garden and put up a notice board saying ' Trespassers will be prosecuted '. He was a very selfish Giant.

The most prized of all British decorations for valour is the Victoria Cross, which is put ahead of all other honours, decorations and awards for bravery, civil or military. But there are many other medals awarded for valour, and in this series GENERAL SIR JOHN HACKETT looks at some of the rewards given to the British serviceman, and at the conditions in which they were won. Although the use of medals as military awards is comparatively recent, they have a long history as an art form to commemorate important people and events.
This first programme traces the history of the medal from the times of the Greeks and Romans to its introduction into Britain under Elizabeth I.

3: Two Nations
In the 18th century Ireland was virtually two nations. Penal laws drove the Catholic majority closer to their church. The ruling Protestant establishment declared its independence of Britain. Then a new breed of nationalists, the United Irishmen, worked to bring the two nations together and plotted, with French help, to set up an independent Irish Republic embracing Protestants and Catholics alike. But the national rebellion degenerated into a bloody sectarian revolt.
By the Union of Britain and Ireland in 1801, the Irish and Westminster parliaments merged - but Catholics were not represented.
The great Catholic patriot, Daniel O'Connell , fought for and achieved the right for Catholics to sit as mps at Westminster. Emancipation won, O'Connell campaigned to repeal the Union with Britain.
