And the great tradition of Venetian painting remains as can be seen in RICCI'S Bathsheba Bathing and CANALETTO'S

featuring The Men's Downhill and Men's Slalom from Kitzbuhel
For sheer spectacle, the Hahnenkamm downhill has few equals in televised winter sport. The Mausfalle and Steilhang are ski racing's Becher's Brook and Canal Turn and the bravest snow men feel shivers as they wait in the start hut, two miles and two minutes from the finish. Twelve months ago
PIRMIN ZURBRIGGEN celebrated a double downhill success here, while in slalom, MARC GIRARDELLI is on a Kitzbuhel hat-trick.
David Vine reports on the Hahnenkamm festival.

Siberian Express. The BAM railway can claim to be the construction project of the century. Reputed to cost E30-billion, its 3,500 kilometres link central USSR to the far east coast. It should transform access to Russia's mineral resources and, they hope, develop the Siberian wasteland through which it passes. Nick Clarke is the first British television reporter allowed to see this miracle of Soviet engineering. Plus Chunnel Update reports on tomorrow's announcement of the lucky winner. And Noble's Prize - the competition between Richard Noble and his
French rivals to sell their new light aircraft.

How do birds fly? Why do fish sprint? What's the secret of a leaping horse? These and other questions are being answered by the animals themselves. Skilful new techniques, with tiny radios, high-speed cameras and special animal training, allow the beat of hearts, the twitch of muscles and the flexing of wings to be recorded from free swimming, flying and running creatures. The study of behaviour is changing as these ingenious methods improve understanding of life in the animal world.

The tenth of 12 films about life in the Soviet Union Master of Samarkand
Just across the border from Afghanistan, 54-year-old Abdugaffar Khakkulov restores ancient Samarkand's mosques and minarets. By insisting on working from authentic medieval designs, he has fallen out with the Soviet state's 'official' craftsmen, whose priority is to attract tourists to Samarkand. After a row, he has gone freelance, a rare achievement in the USSR, and now works independently with his sons on sites of his own choosing. Among the Soviet Union's 50 million Muslims, very few people practise openly. But in men like Abdugaffar the spirit of Islam and the customs of Muslim life show no sign of being stifled. He may pay lip-service to Lenin, but his deeper allegiance is to Allah.

We are living in an age of experiment. The 80s have seen a rich crop of radical and controversial ideas about the form and content of buildings. This second of ten programmes looks at four high-profile movements in modern architecture. 'Post-modernism' is alive and well, represented by Philip Johnson 's mammoth AT&T building in New York,
Graves' building in Oregon, Isozaki's Civic Centre in Japan, and the new Stuttgart museum by James Stirling. Recent factories designed by Rogers and Foster epitomise 'High-Tech.' Richard Meier 's Atlanta Museum represents a reinterpretation of the 'Modern Movement'. And, most controversial of all, the skyscraper hasn't been killed off. It is living through a multitude of mutations, reinvested with a wit and daring reminiscent of its earliest incarnations. Joining the debate are James Stirling , Philip Johnson , Richard Rogers , Norman Foster , Richard Meier and architectural writer
Ada Louise Huxtable.

The true story of June and Jennifer Gibbons , identical black twins, who have refused to speak to adults throughout their lives. How did these attractive, vulnerable girls, with their power to puzzle and infuriate the world, come to be committed to Broadmoor at the age of 19? Drawing on the millions of words in their highly perceptive diaries the twins' story is told through their own eyes. Their writings show that behind the outer wall of silence, the twins are locked into a life and death struggle for individual identity.

The Nabisco Masters Final from Madison Square Garden, New York
It would be appropriate if this season's tennis finished with a final between BORIS BECKER and STEFAN EDBERG. The success they had at Wimbledon and in Australia blew a breath of fresh air through tennis. But let nobody rule out either IVAN LENDL or JOHN MCENROE as Masters Champion yet again.
