Sir Yehudi and Lady Menuhin talk to Dilys Morgan about the nomadic life they have shared for the past 40 years following the concert trail around the world. When they married she was a star in her own right as an actress-ballerina, but the demands of his career meant she had to give up hers. Lady Menuhin admits that she loves arguments and being married to 'the most obstinate man in the world'. She has thrown breakfast trays and a typewriter at her 'infuriatingly calm' husband.
Up to London on the train - that's the way thousands of people from all over the south of England start their working day. Commuting can be expensive, frustrating and exhausting. But, despite complaints of late trains and overcrowded conditions, city workers still accept the daily journey as a necessary evil. So how do you recognise the symptoms when the travelling becomes too much to cope with? And has anyone really assessed the real stresses of commuting?

A centenary profile of John Logie Baird (1888-1946) in his own words. He was the archetypal inventor - obsessive, impatient and frustrated by the lack of recognition for his achievements.
And those achievements were unparalleled - the first television transmission, first colour transmission, 3-D TV, a revolutionary navigational aid called Noctovision, not forgetting more down-to-earth inventions, such as the medicated undersock.
But Baird died embittered by the refusal of the establishment to give him the credit he deserved, by the moneymen's failure to back him and his own naivety that had lost him a fortune.
In 1941, while convalescing from a heart attack, Baird dictated his autobiography. Never published, it forms the core of this progamme.
