11.40 A-level Studies: History The Pilgrimage of Grace of 1536 posed the biggest threat yet faced by the Tudor throne. It has usually been represented as a spontaneous and popular uprising against Henry VIII 's religious reforms and the Dissolution of the Monasteries; but several modem historians have challenged this view.
Authorities on the Tudor period put forward varying interpretations about the people and causes behind the rising.

The Three Fools
Directed by DONIO DONEV
Painstakingly written over 13 years, Wainwright's Guides to the Lakeland Fells are revered by all who walk the hills, and made their author a legend in his own lifetime. Although total sales of 'Wainwright's' have passed the million mark and his recent books have entered the bestseller lists, their author still remains an elusive and secretive figure known simply as 'AW' to a few friends.
In 1982 he spoke publicly for the first time in a BBC North East documentary. Now, in five exclusive films, he takes Eric Robson to some of his favourite places. In tonight's programme, they climb
Penyghent in Yorkshire's limestone country, discovering that its charms are as abundant below ground as above.

What Makes an Animal
How intelligent is a bee? Or an ant? Or a bird? Or a human? Bees can map out the location of flowers, ants can do trigonometry in their heads, birds can navigate thousands of miles and cockatoos can ride bicycles. So is animals' intelligence at all like that of humans?
James Gould , a professor of biology at Princeton
University, argues that what appears to be intelligence in many species turns out to be inborn instinctive behaviour. So why should the human mind be any different? James Gould believes that if we look at many of the fascinating ways that animal minds work, we will learn more about the human one. Music composed by GEOFFREY BURGON

They say that moving house is one of the worst things that can happen to ordinary people.
Ronald Miller , 82, and his wife Isabel, 75, are leaving the house they moved into after their wedding in 1930. Artist Glyn Boyd Harte is moving into a crumbling mansion in the West End; and in Clacton, the Patels are praying that their temple won't get damaged.
For the removal men, it's just another day. But they do try. 'We have to be diplomats,' they say, 'I mean, that's people's lives stuck on the back of our lorries.'
