One of the ancient walkways of Britain starts in Winchester and finishes in Canterbury. It's known as the Pilgrim's Way. Pilgrims are a bit thin on the ground now but people still get out their boots and do the walk for fun. Dennis Skillicorn and playwright Peter Terson decide to join them but they will be travelling in Peter's gypsy wagon. Their companions on the journey are Marcus the horse and his friend Toby the donkey. In this first programme they prepare for the trip and explore a little of Winchester.

The last of eight programmes on 'healthy' cooking presented by Judith Hann Celebrations
In this series top restaurateurs, famous food and cookery writers demonstrate that tasty food needn't be 'naughty but nice' but 'nice but not naughty'. When it comes to feeding large numbers you need inspiration, provided today by Michael Quinn , ex-chef of the Ritz, and Lyn Hall who runs a cookery school in London. They had to please some pretty critical palates, as all the cooks in the series were invited to taste the food. Director CLARE BRIGSTOCKE Producer JENNY ROGERS

A series of films about the way we live now.
At the age of 8 Michael Cooper (known as Mini) began setting things on fire. Eventually he tried to burn down his own house, with his father inside. Ten years ago an award-winning BBC film told the story of this astonishingly attractive and intelligent child arsonist (Mini wasn't allowed to see it at the time). Since then, for more than half his life, Mini has been locked up in high-security psychiatric care. Mini is now 21. He has recently been released on conditional discharge. Hoping to become a magician, he has taken the stage-name 'Johnny Oddball '.
Tonight's film, juxtaposing scenes from past and present, follows Mini's first steps in the outside world, and his struggle to build a career on the fringes of show business. He and his parents battle to understand why they failed in the past and what hope there is for the future. And Mini comes face to face, for the first time, with his actions and their horrifying consequences.
