Since 1954 the four-minute barrier has been broken on hundreds of occasions, so what was so special about that first four-minute mile? The location was Oxford University's Iffley Road track, and the protagonists Roger Bannister ,
Chris Chataway and Chris Brasher.
In 1981, 27 years after
Bannister broke the four-minute barrier, no fewer than eight runners finished inside that time in the Dream Mile at Oslo's Bislett Stadium. Series producer JEFF GODDARD

Film from the last war usually shows the front line and what it was like for our troops fighting the Germans and the Japanese. Film of what was happening to the people at home is rare, mainly because film stock was not available, or what was shot was censored.
But some film escaped the censors, in particular a unique collection of film about what it was like to live in Bristol during the Blitz. Researcher FRANCES OWEN Producer DENNIS DICK BBC Scotland

The Musical Mariner
Remembered for his award-winning film, African
Sanctus, David Fanshawe is off once again with back-pack and tape recorder. This time he heads for the islands of the far Pacific. His mission? To preserve 'a precious but endangered species - indigenous music'.
In the first of two films,
David journeys to the tribal sing-sings of highland
Nuigini (pidgin English - work it out), where with the help of a train of distinctly puzzled tribesmen, he collects 200 hours of music.
Then after a quick trip north to Hampstead (to get married), he's off again - to the paradise islands of Tahiti. And that's where you can rejoin him next week in More from the Musical Mariner. Cameraman MICHAEL DILLON Director BILL LEIMBACH
