Orwell lived and worked and told in his own words and the words of those who knew him.
1: Such Such Were the Joys 'From a very early age, perhaps the age of 5 or 6, 1 knew that when I grew up I should be a writer.... One would never undertake such a thing if one were not driven on by some demon whom one can neither resist nor understand.'
The first programme traces Orwell's upbringing in a sedate middle-class home near Henley, his years at prep school and Eton and as a military policeman in Burma - and closes with his sudden and dramatic emergence as a writer with Down and Out in London and Paris, a book drawn from experiences among vagrants, tramps and outcasts.

Six families and their houses. Stately homes are infused with family history, memories and traditions, but the walls, staircases, front bedrooms and loft conversions of all homes carry their own stories.
4: The Macleans
A castle on the Isle of Mull 'I see myself as a caretaker. A sort of curator looking after this place not just for myself and family but for the Clan.'
Lord Maclean lives in the home built for the Clan 700 years ago. This remote and wild spot has seen battles and wars. Now the battle is to keep the castle going - which means mucking in. 'People arrive and see my wife dashing away with a smoothing-iron and me chopping wood or painting.' Their son, Lachlan, has the awesome responsibility of continuing the long tradition. Surrounded by sea, moor and mountains the castle evokes strong feelings.
'Every man's home is his castle but my castle is my home.'

Invaders of Truk Lagoon For two days in February 1944 United States war planes bombed a Japanese fleet of merchant ships and warships at anchor in Truk Lagoon in the Western Pacific. About 40 ships plunged to the bottom. For Truk the war was over, but on the sandy floor of the lagoon a new era was beginning. For the first time there was something for life to grab hold of. The sunken arsenal of ships, tanks and guns now form the world's largest artificial reef, an eerie but vivid refuge for giant corals and sponges, patrolling lionfish, dancing sea cucumbers and millions of schooling baitfish.

Peter Schaufuss looked at different aspects of the work of the male dancer today.
Tonight's film, a portrait of Schaufuss himself, shows what a demanding life he has chosen. He is constantly working with a new partner or a new choreographer. He is not only a dancer of international repute but a producer of ballets as well - and now, as Artistic Director of the London Festival Ballet, seems to have achieved the ideal union between the two halves of his career with Eva Evdokimova Elisabetta Terabust
