Last of a three-part history of jet flight
Into Thin Air
In 1956 research began on the world's first supersonic airliner. Thirteen years later the first Concordes flew -one from Toulouse and one from Filton. This film traces Bristol's part in the high technology which turned a dream into reality and follows the great white bird's chequered career over the past 15 years. It ends with a look at supersonic flight in the future through the eyes of Sir Frank Whittle , who started it all. Narrator Peter Brown

A Whistle Test report on Mick Jagger
'I was, you know, feeling in the mood for it, and I thought - stop talking about the solo record you might do one day. I didn't think about it too much, to be honest. I just went ahead and did it.'
(ROLLING STONE magazine 1985) Since June 1962, Mick Jagger has been fronting what for many is the greatest rock and roll band in the world - The Rolling Stones. In March of this year, he broke that mould and released his first solo album - She's the Boss.
David Hepworth flew to
Paris and met up with Mick to talk to him about the project. This exclusive interview includes footage shot recently in Brazil to accompany the album, as well as rarely seen archive footage of The Stones in performance.

A profile of the virtuoso bassist Gary Karr , with his duo partner Harmon Lewis , and Yehudi Menuhin ,
Ruggiero Ricci , the Boise Philharmonic, and conductor Daniel Stem.
Gary Karr is probably the only person ever to persuade Yehudi Menuhin to play the double-bass. Karr's own bass playing is nothing less. than phenomenal. Apart from extraordinary technical virtuosity, he can produce a singing tone of great intensity. This film follows him to Menuhin's Festival in Gstaad, Switzerland and to Galveston in Texas; to Boise, Idaho and to the home that Karr and Lewis share in Connecticut. Photography
