by Sir Nicholas Henderson with Kenneth Harris In the last of three programmes
SIR NICHOLAS HENDERSON talks to KENNETH HARRIS about the final years of his diplomatic career as Ambassador in Bonn and Paris. Retired in 1979 at the age of 60, he was unexpectedly recalled to serve as Ambassador in Washington.
It looked like a quiet end to a distinguished career but, shortly after he arrived in Washington, Argentina invaded the Falklands. In all the years of his diplomatic life he had never had to face such a crisis.
In this exclusive interview he recalls the weeks and nights during the lead-up to the British reoccupation of the Islands and the reactions of the Americans to
Mrs Thatcher 's approach to a solution of the conflict. Research MONA ADAMS

Gustav Mahler's songs from Des Knaben Wunderhorn (The Youth's Magic Horn) Soloists Lucia Popp (soprano)
Walton Groenroos (baritone) with the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra conductor Leonard Bernstein
In last week's programme, Leonard Bernstein showed how 'so much essential
Mahler personality is buried in these marvellous Knaben Wunderhorn songs, out of which he fashioned so much of his symphonic music'.
This complete performance of Mahler's song-cycle was recorded during a public performance in Tel Aviv. Subtitles PETER BUTLER

Vietnam: Talking to the People
A report by Jon Alpert JON ALPERT runs the Downtown Community Video Project in New York's
Chinatown. From this base he takes off at a moment's notice as a virtual one-man band to report from all over the world - Nicaragua, Cuba,
Afghanistan, Iran. His often exclusive reports are shown on network TV in the USA.
He has won many Emmy Awards for the unique quality of his work. He remains totally independent. A month or two back, television was full of political reports and analyses on the tenth anniversary of the US pull-out from Vietnam.
This video film is the result of Jon Alpert 's fifth visit to
Vietnam. What we learn of Vietnam today, of Vietnam ten years after, is through the experiences, the faces, and the voices of the people. Produced and directed by JON ALPERT
A COMMUNITY PROGRAMME UNIT presentation
Zero Mostel Gene
Wilder Stanley and his friend John are casually enjoying life and a Sunday lunch, when they become increasingly aware that acquaintances, even life-long friends, are not what they used to be. In fact they are changing into rhinos! As more people join the herd only John is left to fight to be an individual. Based on Ionesco's 'theatre of the absurd' classic, this is a film at once comic and bitter in its attack on conformity.
Screenplay by JULIAN BARRY Produced by ELY LANDAU Directed by TOM O'HORGAN
