A weekly look behind the scenes, at the world of education with Linda Alexander and Martin Young.
This month Cambridgeshire completes a scheme to give head teachers and school governors more control over their schools' pursestrings. The Government wants to enshrine what is known as local financial management in its new Education Act, but can heads be both accountants and teachers? And how will it benefit the children?
Schools in Huntingdon and Bassingbourn provide some of the answers.
Producer PETER DUNKLEY Editor PETER RIDING (e)
A series of programmes for the south east from the south east.
A remarkable education scheme in Oxfordshire schools claims dramatic improvements in children previously regarded as backward, and overturns some of the basic principles of education.

David Jessel and Sue Cook examine the sparks which fly when people clash with the law. This week: a year ago the police handed over responsibility for prosecuting criminals to the new Crown Prosecution Service. Today, the CPS is unable to attract enough high-quality lawyers. Often villains walk free from British courts, as evidence is mislaid, papers lost and cases mishandled. Victims of crime, police officers and many of the prosecutors themselves are angry.

Peter Ustinov presents the last in a six-part, personal and entertaining view of Russia's tumultuous history. My Russia
Peter Ustinov roams the length and breadth of the Soviet Union: spending his birthday in Georgia, visiting a children's theatre in Siberia, enjoying opera at the Bolshoi Theatre in Moscow, Chekhov in the playwright's home town of Taganrog and being deafened in a disco. His final interview is with the lethargic Oblomov, the very incarnation of yesterday's Russia and a far cry from today's energetic, progressive people.

The Rothmans Grand Prix The Quarter-Finals
