PETER WEST introduces further coverage.
A second chance to see this memorable series, first shown in 1979, and repeated this week on consecutive evenings.
In the first of four programmes recorded at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama before an audience of music students, the cellist Jacqueline du Pre takes a masterclass on the work, which above all others, she made particularly her own: the Elgar cello concerto. With FAYE CLINTON and CHRISTINE JACKSON accompanist CLIFFORD BENSON
She was always the most physical and generous of musicians. Now she instructs meticulously, full of concern and goodwill for the young players.

This week Arthur Negus visits the Museum of Playthings Past at Rednal, near Birmingham, where Betty Cadbury shows him her huge collection of Victorian toys, especially the mechanical figures and animals. Bears which smoke cigarettes and drink milk, peacocks which display their tail feathers, growling lions and crowing cockerels - they all combine to make a fascinating cacophony of Victorian ingenuity and fun.

On the Rocks ...
Divorce today is only marginally more difficult than getting planning permission for a kitchen extension; it can even be quicker and cheaper.
With Britain now topping the European league of failed marriages, around 200,000 children a year have their family lives disrupted. Is it now too easy to obtain divorce on demand ... and do the British have unrealistic expectations of marriage?

Four short films about music and memory
... of all the countless melodies This one stirs up memories:
It's still the best and it's my request
So play it please!
A song, or a tune, made special because of the moment with which it's associated, becomes the personal property of the listener.
In this first programme of the series George Melly recalls the song that changed his life, and the circumstances under which he heard it.
