July: The Seaside Hoteliers The holiday season means hard work for James and Francoise Laporte , whose two-star Hotel Trianon is in La Rochelle, on the Atlantic coast. James buys fresh seafood each morning, runs the bar and acts as night porter; Francoise looks after the rooms and the restaurant. Meanwhile the holiday-makers enjoy the beaches of the old harbour town, and join in the festivities of 14 July.

These flowers are the warriors of the plant world. They're armed like battleships with leaves, stems and even flowers barbed with prickles to keep would-be enemies at bay. Michael Jordan looks at how this defence strategy is put into practice.

An Out of Court special On the day of the royal wedding, police marksmen on the roofs of Whitehall watched with loaded rifles for threats to Prince Andrew and his bride. Those same riflemen are the men who will fire the plastic bullet guns if, or when, they are used in a riot on mainland Britain.
This film follows a group of these special policemen, who are trained to kill, yet at the same time are expected to be ordinary beat bobbies. Reporter Ed Boyle We have not heard such voices before SUNDAY TIMES Producer STEPHEN LAMBERT (R)
Television Topics In the first of four programmes based on extracts from the last series of Did You See... ?,
Ludovic Kennedy introduces three of the best feature items from the original evening editions of the programme.
Firstly, Hugh Sykes reports on an experiment in which people without television were asked to watch it for two weeks. And, for the same period, television addicts were deprived of their favourite pastime. How did the two groups survive? Stephen Fry looks at weathermen of the world, past and present; and there's a chance to meet the contestants and question-setters of Mastermind, television's most intellectual quiz show.

The second of eight stories about the Special Operations Executive.
Narrated by Michael Bryant One of the tasks of SOE in World War Two was to raise guerrilla forces in countries occupied by the enemy. Nowhere was this more important than in France where the Allied armies were going to have to fight their way ashore on D-Day against heavy German odds.
SOE sent hundreds of agents - men and women - into France over three years between 1941 and 1944. By D-Day SOE's
French Section had nearly 50 networks ready to strike at the German rear.
One of these was the 'Jockey' network in south-eastern France, whose organiser Francis Cammaerts , a schoolmaster in peacetime, became one of SOE's most successful agents.
It was patient, dangerous and deadly work but it paid off - with spectacular results! All the classic virtues of in depth documentary at its best
