The last of six programmes 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 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 in Brown Boats for 80 years.
By contrast, the story of the Wherries is a tragedy. This trading vessel, most famous of the 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 Director JENNI BURROWS

This week's subject is Children Egon Schiele (1890-1918)
Woman with Two Children at the Osterreichisches Museum, Vienna. As might be expected of an artist of a generation discovering Freud and the human unconscious, the chronic agitation and despair running through Schiele's work is derived partly from his relationship with a mother who seemed entirely lacking in either sympathy or understanding.
Written, narrated by RICHARD CORK

Painting by Numbers
Have you ever wondered what it would be like to fly between the skyscrapers of a city centre? ... to take a trip through Saturn's rings? ... or walk around inside a molecule of DNA?
' Computer graphics' provides ways of simulating reality or building fantastic new worlds - together with the power to explore or manipulate the 3-D images created.
For the artist it's a new way to paint, or to animate a film; for the scientist to understand his data or test a hypothesis; and for anyone to play ever more elaborate space-invaders style games, or to participate in and control extraordinary, dangerous or impossible events ...
