Jonathan Miller talks to eminent psychologists -
12 people who contribute in very different ways to our understanding of the human mind. One of Sigmund Freud 's most important contributions to psychology was the idea that there are desires and urges in our mind of which we may be completely unaware. This notion of an unconscious mind, which can guide our behaviour in curious and unexpected ways, has not only given rise to a whole new branch of psychiatric treatment - psychoanalysis - but has completely transformed the way in which people think about themselves and their actions.
Stuart Hampshire, Warden of Wadham College, Oxford, discusses the significance of Freud's 'discovery'.

Part 3: The Final Challenge The Arctic - a huge and largely unspoilt wilderness of exceptional beauty - still teems with wildlife. The traditional skills of the early Eskimo hunters enabled them to survive in the Arctic without squandering its wildlife. But, today, snowmobiles and rifles have almost replaced huskies and harpoons, and the Eskimo people now share their harsh domain with oil men, miners and scientists. Will the rich reserves of oil and minerals be extracted without pollution? And can the animal life be protected for future generations?

Time is All You've Got
Bandleader and clarinettist
Artie Shaw was so successful in his early career that he was earning 60,000 dollars a week by the age of 29. Always controversial, if only for his eight wives among whom were Ava Gardner and Lana Turner , he once dared to call his fans 'morons' and twice he walked away from his career at the height of his popularity. At the age of 74 Shaw explains his activities in this much acclaimed documentary film portrait, shown on British television for the first time, which includes rare home movies plus vintage footage of his band. Among the other contributors are his eighth wife Evelyn Keyes , Helen Forrest , Buddy Rich and Mel Tonne.
