Lady Antonia Fraser in conversation with Roy Plomley

She also took him to her favourite castle and her favourite hotel; visited a fortune-teller; and listened to her favourite singers in performance. (R)
Recapturing the Past
Building a romantic castle was a favourite form of escapism for 19th-century magnates; hence the Gothic turrets of Penrhyn, based on a slate fortune. New money also built an ideal arts and crafts house at Wightwick Manor, outside
Wolverhampton; while the Duke of Rutland restored beautiful Haddon Hall with antiquarian care. The most romantic landscape, though, was created in this century, by Rex Whistler for Lord
Anglesey's dining-room at Plas Newydd. Presented by John Julius Norwich
... wrought with infinite taste and skill.... a dazzling reminder that western civilization has sometimes produced quintessentially habitable treasure houses.

The opening-up of the Oklahoma territory provided opportunities for land-hungry
- pioneers, and rich pickings for unscrupulous outlaws. Marshal Vance determines to make the new territory a safer place to live, but he reckons without strong opposition from such desperadoes as the Sundance Kid, the Dalton Brothers and a tough female outlaw, Cheyenne.

Wild Bill Doolin:
Six films of early exploration introduced from the Royal
Geographical Society by the pioneer polar explorer Duncan Carse.
To India by Land-Yacht (1939) 'Travelling eastward across the Syrian desert we paused at the great trading centre of Baghdad ... Much later, twisting through the rocky gorges of Afghanistan, we crossed the Khyber to the spices and gold of India.'
So an American millionaire,
Larry Thaw , summarised the itinerary of one of the most opulent holiday jaunts. His transport was an enormous motor caravan, complete with a shower bath, refrigerator, and a retinue of six Indian servants - the whole outfit he called his 'land-yacht'. He also took along a professional cameraman to shoot his 'holiday snaps' on early colour film, and then added his own period sound track. The final result is both a time-capsule of 30s images and attitudes, and a vivid record of trail-blazing at its most luxurious and colourful. Original narrator Norman Wilson

A Newsnight special One of Scotland's leading artists talks to Joan Bakewell , whose Portrait he painted at this year's Edinburgh Festival.
An Out of Court special
Now in his 80th year, Lord
Hailsham is the oldest man in the government and one of its most colourful characters.
As Lord High Chancellor he occupies the most ancient political office in the land, older than parliament itself.
Much of his job is ceremonial, but beneath the full-bottomed wig and the silk stockings there is controversy.
Should a senior Cabinet Politician appoint judges and sit as a Law Lord? Some critics complain he has blocked important legal reforms. One judge has even called him a 'brooding dictator'. After ten years on the Woolsack, Lord Hailsham talks to Ed Boyle about the problems of running our legal system. In characteristically robust style he argues that we have too many laws, which are often passed 'simply to reflect the machismo of ministers'. Film editor LIZ TENNENT producer ALAN BOOKBINDER

AIDS - Who Cares? 'There is a common misconception that only people with lots of sexual partners get AIDS. You don't have to be promiscuous any more than you have to be gay. Because AIDS is incurable, it is very frightening. It is tempting to make it less frightening by pretending that only people who are different in some way can get it.'
Jonathan Grimshaw challenges some of the myths and distortions surrounding the threat posed by the AIDS virus and demonstrates the positive responses which have been made by individuals and voluntary organisations.
