The Development of Life The last of six lectures by Professor Lewis Wolpert , FRS Growing Up and Growing Old How is it that people's arms, which grow independently of each other, stop growing at the same length? And why do people grow old? Could a modern Dr Frankenstein, having made his angel, offer it immortality? (R)
Written and narrated by Patrick O'Donovan
The remarkable story of how 500 peasant farmers in the harsh north east of Brazil gave up their life on the land to build a living replica of Jerusalem as it was 2,000 years ago. Now they dedicate their lives almost entirely to a spectacular yearly six-day recreation of Christ's Passion. Forty thousand people from all over Brazil come to take part rather than watch; but it is more than a theatrical experience which moves some of its participants to grief.

When the burial of one of the early High Kings of England was discovered in 1939, contemporary events obscured its initial sensation.
But the site of Sutton Hoo , now a national monument, has continued to fascinate both the public and scholars. Who was this king and when did he die? Where did this dynasty originate and where did the power, wealth and influence come from, to accumulate riches drawn from all over continental
Europe and as far as Byzantium? How long had this prestigious burial site, with its many still unexcavated mounds, already been in use when the king was buried there?
In 1984, a new series of excavations, led by archaeologist Martin Carver began to help unravel these mysteries. Tonight's film chronicles the first year of new investigations using the latest techniques in archaeology. The search for a king has now become the search for the kingdom. Narrator Ian Holm

A series of films about the way we live now
Troublesome People Reporter
There are men and women who are willing to die for their beliefs, but not to kill for them. Many people find them infuriating. They are thorns in the flesh of authority. They face ridicule, torture, imprisonment, even the threat of death - because they are pacifists.
Lord Brockway, now aged 98, was imprisoned in a dungeon in the Tower of London during the First World War. Frances Partridge recalls how she learned of the Nazi atrocities which caused many pacifists a crisis of conscience.
Jennifer and Ian Hartley, middle-class Quakers, felt compelled to live for ten months in a 'peace camp' outside the wire at
Molesworth Air Base.
Bernard Shaw once described them as 'troublesome people'. They all form part of a British tradition of non-conformity. But what have they achieved, if anything, over the years?
