The Housing Granny Wants She doesn't want to live with relatives. She doesn't want to move away. She doesn't want to live in a 'home'. Like most elderly people she wants to stay put in her own place. And she wants to be independent. But what if she becomes frail, and vulnerable to falls? And what happens if her relatives move away from the area?
Margo MacDonald looks at the kind of housing and services that would suit elderly people who want to stay as independent as possible.

Mark Baker 's tale of well-meaning knights who unwittingly leave behind them a trail of destruction. (R)
The last in a series of 13 films in which a walled garden is restored and worked as it was 100 years ago.
Presented by Peter Thoday with Head Gardener Harry Dodson December
Christmas occupies much of the head gardener's time. Harry ensures he has a plentiful supply of produce for the festive meals by stockpiling well in advance. In the forcing house chicory and rhubarb are ready, and in the glasshouse there are prized pineapples. Harry also gathers quantities of holly and ivy to make elaborate garlands and wreaths for the Big House.
But this is now the final month of the project and Peter and Harry look back over the achievements of the last year and reflect on what the garden has meant to them.

Judgement in Jerusalem
Twenty-six years ago Adolph Eichmann , the Nazi officer, was tried in Jerusalem.
Timewatch explores the trial through a controversial book, Eichmann in Jerusalem by Hannah Arendt. Arendt, a philosopher, had written with great insight on the historical position of Jews in modern western society and on the rise of Nazism. It was therefore with a sense of deep hurt and outrage that many Jews read her reports from Jerusalem. She questioned the legality and political purpose of the trial, she portrayed Eichmann as 'banal rather than evil' and she made sweeping comments on questions of Jewish resistance and cooperation. Using archive film of the trial and interviews with friends, historians and survivors of the camps in New York and Jerusalem, this documentary pieces together the different reactions to Arendt's arguments, and to the painful process of turning the Holocaust into history.

'I am doing what I should have done 30 years ago, to Jack and Rick and all the mothers and fathers, for stealing my life off my plate, driving me into a lifetime's betrayal. We betray to be loyal. Betrayal is like imagining when the reality isn't good enough. Betrayal as hope and compensation. Betrayal as love. You were my promised land, Poppy. You gave my lies a reason.'
