Three Steps to Heaven
Classics like 'Summertime blues', 'C'mon everybody' and 'Three steps to heaven' made Eddie Cochran one of the all-time greats of rock 'n' roll. But for his tragic death, many think he could have become as successful as Elvis. In 1960, in the middle of a triumphant tour of Britain, the car carrying Cochran, his fiancee and Gene Vincent crashed on the A4. He died hours later in a hospital in Bath - he was 22.
Tonight Arena examines the legend of Cochran and the enduring appeal of his music. Larry Parnes, the most successful promoter and manager of his time describes the heady days of the 1960 tour. Adam Faith ,
Marty Wilde and Joe Brown recall the nursery slopes of rock 'n' roll and the enormous impact of Cochran on the British rock scene. Cochran's mother and his fiancee Sharon Sheeley talk publicly for the first time. Producer ALAN YENTOB Director ALAN LEWENS An Arena presentation
The city of Bombay is an expanding metropolis into which some 21 million people commute to work daily.
At lunchtime, many take advantage of the city's restaurants and roadside stalls, but nearly half these workers enjoy the pleasures of home cooking through a personalised lunch service, the logistics of which defy the imagination! This is the fascinating and humorous story of a small family firm that delivers a million meals from home to office, and a testament to the men who keep Bombay marching on its stomach.

Age could become a bigger influence in politics than class, sex and race have ever been. Almost one in four voters in Britain are pensioners. They are growing in numbers - and the younger population is shrinking. With at least 12 general elections behind them, can settled views and established party loyalties be expected, or could pensioners become a force that makes or breaks governments?
