On a bleak Devon moor, Sir Charles Baskerville is found dead, his face frozen with fear. Nearby are the footprints of a gigantic hound.

Sherlock Holmes , accompanied by his faithful companion Dr Watson, sets out to defy the curse and stalk the ghostly animal to discover the truth behind the mystery.

Launched from the lush meadows of the Berkshire
Downs, a model plane seems to develop a life of its own as it soars in the air and leads its hapless owner a will-o'the-wisp dance over hill and dale until the cliff-hanger conclusion.

David Jessel and Sue Cook , with film reporter Ed Boyle , examine the sparks which fly when people clash with the law.
This week 100 years ago it was an elementary matter for Sherlock Holmes to unravel the mystery of the murderous hound of the Baskervilles. These days, when vicious and out-of-control dogs are responsible for as many as six savage attacks a week, the law seems to be less effective.
Can a way be found to regulate ownership of these potentially lethal animals? Studio director PIETER MORPURGO Producer ALAN BOOKBINDER
Arena presents the first television showing for Jonathan 'Something Wild' Demme's superlative concert-movie featuring Talking Heads.
David Byrne's innovatory visual flair and virtuosity as a performer surmount the cliches of both the tinsel vacuity of pop videos and the tired posturing of rock shows. Demme does away with the visual jargon of the rocumentary - no shots to adoring fans - and by dispensing with shaggy perms, straining leather trousers and squealing red guitars, Stop Making Sense drags the pop concert into the 80s.
Alone and dwarfed in an elephantine white suit, Byrne itches and twitches to fever pitch. He opens with a jittery, acoustic version of Psycho Killer and the drama builds through Heaven and Slippery People to the manic Burning Down the House.

The likelihood of a New
Zealand v Wales semi-final with PETER SKOGLUND and PETER BELLiss against

E14,000 going to the winner of the championship, no holds will be barred in this match and, whoever takes part, it should be a classic match. Highlights of tonight's match are introduced by DAVID ICKE from
Bournemouth International Conference Centre.
