Captain James T Kirk:
Brittany and Cornwall have many things in common. Their cultures have been intertwined for thousands of years. Alas, the Cornish appetite for fish has not developed in the same way as the Bretons. They, it seems, enjoy everything scooped out of the sea that divides these two ancient kingdoms.

The first of four films reporting on the people, problems and potential of the world's fifth-largest country. God, Football and Carnival Brazil's huge disparities of wealth should mean that there's a revolution once a week, but in practice this just hasn't happened. One reason could be the important role that religion, football and carnival play in Brazilian society.
Those taking part include
Brazil's most famous writer, Jorge Amado , and the Rio anthropologist, Roberto da Matta. Narrator Jim Norton Film editor CHRIS WOOLLEY Producer PETER RIDING

The last of two programmes about Soviet television and Soviet society Fiction
What makes Russians laugh? Who are the top pop stars on Soviet TV? What's the nearest thing to a Soviet soap opera? This programme looks at Soviet TV's way of entertainment. Poetry at peak time and opera all hours are what you might expect of a TV system which has no need to compete for ratings yet still achieves 150 million viewers for a single play. But there are also spy-thrillers and satire, and popular drama from a Soviet
Mary Poppins to Pushkin's version of Mozart and Salieri. Prize-winning screen writer Yosif Olshansky and Pravda TV critic Georgi Kapralov discuss the problems of writing for television in the USSR, and this and other issues are taken up in the studio by Melvyn Bragg , editor of The South Bank
Show, and writers Alan Plater and Alistair Beaton.

A series of films about the way we live now.
Keep Taking the Rose Petals Treatments made from gemstones, flowers, herbs and honey; medications prepared by moonlight; potions ground by hand ... for thousands of years the healers of India and Pakistan have plied their ancient remedies. Today Asian medicine has taken root in Britain, practised by traditional healers, the Hakims and Vaids. As many as 300 now operate here, offering an alternative health service in every British town with a sizeable Asian population. The appeal of the medicines is not confined to Asians. More and more white patients, dissatisfied with modern medicine, are turning to the treatment of the East.
But traditional medicine is largely unregulated - could some of the remedies be dangerous?
