Thousands of people in work need help with basic skills such as spelling and maths. But until recently education was not seen as the responsibility of employers. However, a new joint trade union and employer initiative called Workbase is now helping workers to catch up on missed educational opportunities.

with David Jessel , Sue Cook and film reporter Ed Boyle This week: half a million couples in Britain are living together outside marriage. But as bedlock without wedlock means losing the law's protection, many couples are now following the American example of 'cohabitation contracts' to regulate everything from dividing up the joint home to sharing the washing-up. Are these contracts legal? Studio director PIETER MORPURGO Producer ALAN BOOKBINDER
Fourth of seven programmes filmed over two years inside the secretive world of HM Customs and Excise.
The Red and the Green
A wry, yet disturbing, look at the daily grind in the red and green customs' channels of the world's busiest international airport, London Heathrow. Target flights from drug-growing areas usually produce results, but mostly officers have to rely on a mix of intuition, graft, luck and the 'revenue nose'.
'Fifty per cent of those we stop will have something over the top,' says one officer.
Tolerance towards the ordinary passenger tempted into 'the little bit extra' does not extend to those whose duty-free turns out to be cannabis. The insight into the 'Throne Room', where officers doing the nastiest job in customs wait for the 'stuffers' and 'swallowers', ensures that no one can ever look at those quiet customs people in the same way again.

Love, Death, Sex and Matters Arising ...
To millions of filmgoers
Woody Allen is a fast-talking, awkward, permanently adolescent misfit obsessed with love, death and sex. The real Woody Allen is a hardworking and thoughtful writer of plays, short stories and films; an actor who took years to perfect his own style; a disciplined and demanding director. With one major film a year to his credit since the late 1960s, he has become America's most prestigious comic artist, in the unique position of being able to make the films he likes with the people he knows - Diane Keaton ,
Mia Farrow , Tony Roberts.
Christopher Frayling visited Woody Allen in New York, the setting and background of his best-known films - Annie Hall, Manhattan, Hannah and Her Sisters.
In a rare televison interview he looks back over his successful career - the early comedies - Take the Money and Run, Bananas, Sleeper, Love and Death; the more serious films - Interiors,
Stardust Memories; and the affectionate celebrations of his own world - Broadway Danny Rose, Radio Days, The Purple Rose of Cairo. Film editor JOHN LEE
