117th Open Championship from Royal Lytham and St Anne 's Golf Club.
Royal Lytham and St Anne's has a special place in the history of this great game. Tony Jacklin , amid triumphant scenes, was the last Briton to win here in 1969. Bobby Jones , with the help of a 175-yard bunker shot at the 17th, won the first Open to be held here in 1926. Peter Thomson won the fourth of his five Opens here in 1958, and of course the young SEVE BALLESTEROS enthralled everyone in 1979, winning by three strokes. Double Masters champion SANDY LYLE also provides a strong challenge.
NICK FALDO knows how difficult it will be to retain the trophy.

When this prize-winning series was first shown in November 1985, glasnost had not swept the Soviet Union. In the rhetoric of the west, it was still the 'evil empire'. So the 12 portraits of Soviet life had a mixed reception: 'a television milestone' said one paper, 'duped by the KGB' said another. Starting this week, another chance to see some of the films which broke the Soviet ice. 1: Educating Rita
Rita Tikonova is 21. At the time the film was made. she was living in a small flat about a mile from the Kremlin, training to be a teacher.

Giotto, Rembrandt and Turner
Sir Lawrence Gowing explores the work of three great artists.
1: Giotto (c 1267-1337) Patterns of Humanity
With Giotto everything is embodied in wall painting, not simply painting on a wall but painting that is the wall, an integral part of the building, sharing its structural identity. Solidity and strength shine through it. Tonight's film was made in Assisi, Padua and Florence. Giotto di Bondone was bom near Florence over 700 years ago and changed the course of European painting.
Now. for the first time, the Scrovegni Chapel in Padua has been filmed to show the beauty and narrative power of his masterpiece. Thirty-four frescoes pack the walls of the chapel to form a huge picture sequence that shows as one inseparable and unforgettable story the life of Christ and the workings of the everyday world.

First of six films on the police and the public Keeping PACE?
The Police and Criminal
Evidence Act 1984 - PACE - is the police officers' bible, a statutory set of rules which governs every aspect of police work from stop and search, to arrest and detention to the handling of complaints. The Police
Federation says that PACE is too restrictive and hinders crime detection. Others feel that record keeping and a new complaints procedure don't go far enough in protecting the suspect from possible abuse.
