The last of a series of six programmes about sailing ships that have survived.
Brown Boats and Wherries - two traditional Norfolk craft which have survived changed times on the Broads.
The brown boats are yachts. Thirty-one were built in the early 1900s for local families, who raced them on Oulton Broad. Of these, 29 still exist - thanks to the devoted care of Lady Mayhew, who has sailed them for 80 years. By contrast the story of the wherries is a tragedy. Thir trading vessel, most famous of tt 3 Broads boats is almost extinct. Only one, the Albion, survives, earning her living with holiday cruises. Her large brown sail towering above the motor cruisers is a reminder of earlier, more elegant, days. Narrator TOM SALMON

continues a season of Hollywood's classic Westerns, starring
This slam-bang, action-filled Western satire has often been copied but never matched. James Stewart stars as Thomas Jefferson Destry Jr, a mild-mannered, peace-loving man hired by Wash Dinsdale to clean up the frontier town of Bottle Neck. While professing a dislike for firearms, Destry nevertheless takes on the bad men of Bottle Neck as well as the town's saloon entertainer, Frenchy, who is played with great relish by Marlene Dietrich.

Prisoners of History
Ireland's past has formed Ireland's and Northern Ireland's present. Eire still seeks the unity of all Ireland; the Protestant North still resists; Catholics in Northern Ireland are still disaffected; Britain is still involved.
A decade of violence, in which more than 2,000 have been killed, has only hardened attitudes, though politicians still work for a union of hearts and minds, or at least agreement to differ and to live in peace. There are few signs of movement.
Both in the heartland of the Northern Protestant majority and in the Catholic communities they surround, there are those who see themselves as prisoners of history. Need they always remain so? Film research VICTORIA WEGG-PROSSER Film editor SIMON HAMMOND Associate producers
