A memorable film record of Elvis
Presley's concert tour of America in 1972 in which his sensational performances delighted faithful fans and newcomers alike. The film captures the magic of songs ranging from early hits such as Don 't be cruel and Love me tender to contemporary ballads like Bridge over troubled water, as well as providing a rare, off-stage picture of the man behind the legend.
Produced and directed by PIERRE ADIDGE and ROBERT ABOL

Life After Crime
Despite growing public anxiety over the rising crime rate, little is done for the victims. The long-term effects of crime on these forgotten people can be traumatic yet remain unrecognised or misunderstood.
There is now a spreading national movement of Victims of Crime Support Schemes and this film is about just one local group in south west Liverpool. In the face of a bewildering, sometimes horrifying, array of crime their philosophy remains constant: to turn victims into survivors. Narrator

Open Space is the series where the public make programmes under their own editorial control with help from the Community Programme Unit.
The Eleven-Minute Mile Some doctors thought he might never even walk. For the past two years, 8-year-old Doran Scotson has been running a mile every day. A major step in his achievement was his decision to go for a time of 11 minutes. Not beyond many boys of his age; but Doran is different. Severe jaundice at birth damaged his brain, leaving him terribly handicapped.
Doran and his mother Linda have one singular ambition: by extraordinary effort to achieve ordinary progress.
But there is nothing ordinary about this most moving story of love, determination and courage.

The last of a series of nine programmes featuring natural history films from other countries. Ducks in Danger
For thousands of years, one of the greatest pageants of nature has been the annual migration of waterfowl along the entire length of North America. For days on end, ducks, geese and swans once darkened the skies in 'the fall', but their numbers have been steadily dropping.
Recently the population of ducks fell by 25 per cent - it was said to be due to four years of drought - but the reason is far more complex than that.
In this, the second film from the Canadian series The Nature of Things,
David Suzuki takes a look at the apparent crisis facing the North American waterfowl. Ducks in Danger won the Conservation Award at Wildscreen in 1986 Television presentation GEORGE INGER BBC Bristol

Robert is 17, wheelchair-bound, and hasn't long to live. A second chance to see this haunting play by cancer-sufferer Clive Jermain, which had an enormous impact when first shown last year.
Emphasis was held back, and the pure poignancy flowed through. It was heartbreaking MAIL ON SUNDAY

12.5am Education: The Bennett Report
Most researchers want to share the results of their work - but how they choose to communicate can have unforeseen, far-reaching results, as NEVILLE BENNETT found out. In 1976 when the debate on progressive education was at its height, his book on primary teaching caused a storm.
