Though the majority of concertos Vivaldi wrote were for solo instruments, there are still more than 150 works for two or more soloists. Of these the Dresden concerto is one of the most delightful. It is featured in today's programme, along with a work for solo oboe and one for two horns. They're played by young international soloists accompanied by members of the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra.

Presented this week by poet Benjamin Zephaniah Work as Leisure
The number of industrial museums in Britain has been rising steadily. Eric Griffiths visits three of this new generation of museums, including Blaenavon Big Pit, Wigan Pier and Liverpool's Albert Dock. He asks whether the spectacle of work is becoming the new leisure activity for the late 80s. Sax Appeal
The saxophone is this year's instant indicator of style. Jazz critic Richard Cook traces this vogue to the hip nostalgia of films like Round Midnight coinciding with the new wave in British jazz.
Featuring young Bristol saxophonist Andy Sheppard and his quintet.

The EEC wants Europe's airlines to abandon their cosy system of price regulation. American airlines embraced free competition nine years ago; now millions more Americans fly, at much lower prices. But as Paul Burden reports de-regulation has been a mixed blessing.

A history of western philosophy in 15 parts 5: Spinoza and Leibniz with Anthony Quinton , Chairman of the British Library and formerly President of Trinity College, Oxford.

Forest of Fear
Sundarbans is no ordinary forest. It is a sinister tangle of mangroves where real fear haunts the twisting channels. In this Bengali swamp is the world's largest single population of tigers; a higher than average number of which are man-eaters.
Peter Jackson - a 'big cat' specialist - enters this area to investigate the problem of man-eating tigers. But many stories filter out about
Sundarbans and it's difficult to gather the facts; it's even more of a challenge to see what can be done to allow tigers to co-exist with people. Narrated by Barry Paine Directed and photographed by ALAN MCGREGOR

- with Bruce Davison
Following a break-out from a reservation, Ulzana, an Apache renegade, and a group of braves carry out vicious raids murdering and torturing local homesteaders and their families. Mclntosh, an ageing Scout, and an idealistic young officer lead a cavalry troup in a frantic attempt to recapture the Indian, in a mission that radically changes their lives.
Aldrich's film is widely regarded as one of the greatest westerns of its decade and Lancaster - who worked regularly with this director - gives one of his most deeply etched portrayals of a man torn by the conflicts of war, honour and guilt.
