Empire Games Marathon, 1954
Jim Peters is remembered not for the many victories he achieved, but for this one sad failure. The race took place three decades before today's hordes of 'fun runners' start and mostly finish their marathons.
HARRY CARPENTER 'S interview with Peters was also recorded nearly two decades ago.
Every year the first day's play provides some shocks, and an unsung hero emerges with a good score.
HARRY CARPENTER has all the news of the first round.
Six documentaries by black film-makers.
'We are black. Our lips are big. Our hair is nappy. And we are beautiful.'
The words of Stokeley Carmichael spoken at the dawn of the civil rights era. The second in a series of Ebony documentaries looks at the development of black hair fashions, from the European idea of beauty seen in the 'Tony Curtis' or 'Lauren Bacall', through Angela Davis' proud, defiant 'Afro', to today's 'Wet-look crazy' youth.
From Nat King Cole to Carl Lewis, Grace Jones and Rasta dreadlocks. The politics, myths, folklore and superstitions surrounding hair, The Crowning Glory.

As a prelude to the performance of A Child of our Time in this Friday's opening night of the Proms, BBC2 is repeating this highly-praised film from the series, One Pair of Eyes.
Sir Michael Tippett , Britain's most eminent composer, examines the changing relationship between the artist and society in the past and the present. Looking at contemporary life, with its mixture of humanity and violence, he suggests that we are living at a time in which there is an increasing hunger for the satisfaction of an inner world - a world to which the artist speaks. Producer MALCOLM BROWN Director MISCHA SCORER (R)

1: Letters in the Rock
When the Streets lost their little son, Luke, they commemorated him in a very special way: they made a pottery teddy bear, and put their own poem on its tummy.
We were not there to see you die
To hold your hand or say goodbye
But we 71 remember our whole lives through
Those ten short months we spent with you
Poet Tony Harrison opens this four-part journey through memory and memorial in Blackpool, scene of his childhood holidays. Today he finds the holiday hotels taken over by the annual conference of Master Masons, demonstrating the latest high-tech tombstones. Most of us are unlikely to be commemorated.
Seventy per cent of people in the UK are cremated and the majority have no gravestone. But the need for memorial remains.
This film follows the story of five other families, including the Howards of Castle Howard, who, like the Streets, have found their own unique and sometimes extraordinary ways of remembering their loved ones.
