with Linda Alexander and Martin Young Probably the most controversial aspect of the Government's new Education Bill is the section giving individual schools the possibility of opting out of Local Authority control. This week's programme looks at two schools in Stroud, Gloucestershire, which are considering opting out; and asks what the implications are for the pupils, parents and teachers and also for the other schools in the area.

David Jessel and guest presenter Kirsty Wark examine the sparks which fly when people clash with the law.
This week: when Jeffrey Archer walked away from the High Court with half-a-million pounds from the Star, he hit the jackpot in the lottery of our libel laws.
But as libel fees, too, reach astronomical heights, only the wealthy and well-protected can afford to defend their reputations in court. Even lawyers want reforms in this elaborate game of bluff and counter-bluff.
Programme six in a seven-part series filmed over two years inside the secretive world of Customs and Excise.
Heathrow Airport: sniffer dogs are routinely checking a Pakistan Airlines plane while, on the tarmac, officers and dogs are looking for drug concealments in passengers' bags. Arrivals from Pakistan receive particular attention, and this one suddenly yields a 'dirty bag,' a suitcase probably containing heroin.
'Auntie' and her nephew are stopped in the green channel and interrogated. The young man says, "It is Auntie's bag - she has the key".
Auntie is questioned through an interpreter. "It is not my case," she says, glaring at the officer and becoming increasingly belligerent. Her interrogator, though, gently persists...

Your Honour, I Object! Arena presents its first authentic courtroom drama, featuring, in the prosecution corner, Bob 'Penthouse'
Guccione versus Britain's
Ken Russell , a case in which justice must not only be done, but must be seen to be believed.
Guecione hired Russell to direct a film version of Daniel Defoe 's picaresque classic Moll Flanders in the same vein as his infamous
Caligula. Before too long ego clashed with ego over the contents of the script - and Guccione sued Russell for breach of contract (a further addition to the other 50 suits he currently has on the go). Another twist in this bitter battle of the giants is provided by Russell's lawyer, the flamboyant
Richard Golub. However, Golub does not really want to be a lawyer; his true vocation is to be a rock star. As payment for Golub's services Russell had to agree to direct a video of his latest song Dancing for Justice, a follow-up to his debut single He's My Lawyer ...
Arena brings you all the tension and cross-court fire of one of the most outrageous trials of the century.

The two men who tomorrow will decide the 1987 championship will be known at the end of this coverage of the remaining sessions of the two semi-finals. At the end of the night to the losers will go a paltry Â£21,000 each - small reward for coming so near and yet so far. This season the players want titles, not just the cash.
The disappointment and drama from the Guild Hall, Preston, introduced by David Vine.
