The first of this week's films starring Hollywood's great screen goddess in four of her most famous roles. Also starring
Charles Boyer as Napoleon
For Countess Marie Walewska , like many patriotic Poles, Napoleon Bonaparte was the knight in shining armour who would save them from the Cossacks. But the Emperor, when he visits Poland, is disinclined to chase Cossacks and much more interested in pursuing the Countess. The Polish nobles urge her to make 'the supreme sacrifice' to save her country, thus beginning one of history's great love stories.

This week's theme: Grief Bacon (b 1909)
Three Studies for Figures at the Base of a Crucifixion at the Tate Gallery, London
This triptych painting was first shown in April 1945, when most peopfe felt optimistic about the prospect pf peace. Bacon's picture
. personified a howl of anger at a world so cruel and meaningless that man is reduced to the level of a gruesome accident.
The odious malformations of these creatures were, in fact, a portent. Four months later an' atomic bomb was dropped on Hiroshima. Some "of the victims were as dehumarised as the -wretches in Bacon's triptych.

The last of five personal accounts of recent changes in scientific ideas Programmed for Insight? Dr John H. Crook
The idea that mankind is the evolutionary descendant of other primates has provoked debate from Darwin onwards. In particular, the notion that our behaviour can be explained from the study of animals .seemed to overlook our unique capacity for self-awareness and conscious choice.
JOHN CROOK believes that the new ideas to come from ethology provide an evolutionary perspective for how these inner processes of the mind arose.

The Fatal Bargain
It's now almost a year since the outbreak of a terrifying new disease in Spain which has affected more than 17,000 people and killed nearly 300. Despite intense scientific research in Spain and other countries, the disease has remained a complete mystery. It is thought to have been caused by industrial oil which unscrupulous businessmen tried to pass off as olive oil. But tonight's programme reveals just how little is known about the oil and the disease it's supposed to have triggered. It's a story of confusion, panic, intrigue, bureaucratic bungling and scientific wrangling, and of the fear and helplessness felt by the victims of this appalling calamity.
