Mrs Carol Wayne:
When asked what she would like to be remembered for, the novelist Mary Renault once replied: 'For getting it right'. For the many admirers of her historical novels, 'getting it right' was exactly what she did.
Last month Mary Renault died in her adopted country, South Africa. She was 78. A remote figure, she was always reluctant to speak about her life and work. She did, however, make one exception for her fellow writer, David Sweetman. The result is this film first shown in Omnibus in 1982. Film editor SAXON LOGAN

Our secondary schools remain the most problematic of the state education system. In each of the five programmes in this new series a single speaker raises an issue of his own choice and produces filmed evidence to support a personal view. This week
Dr John Rae, headmaster of Westminster School, argues and defends his case for a return to academic selection in the state system. 'The idea of an elite is not something about which we need feel shame or guilt' and he visits the famous Bronx School of Maths and Science in New York to support this claim.

The Intelligence Man
A story of scientific fraud by STEPHEN DAVIS starring John Shrapnel
Sir Cyril Burt died in 1971, the most eminent psychologist of his age, his name forever linked with the IQ test and the 11 + examination system. Within two years the most bitter and disturbing scientific controversy since
Piltdown Man saw Burt accused of lifelong faking and manipulation of phoney data. How and why was Burt allowed to get away with this?
The Intelligence Man tells the story of Burt's life and controversial career.
Alongside the drama is the first-hand testimony of four of the world's leading psychological scientists, each of whose careers was caught up with that of Burt - including the controversial figures of Professors Arthur Jensen and Hans Eysenck.
