The Crossing by DAVID LAN
Pello may look like an ordinary South African village girl, but her secret work is to guide guerrilla freedom fighters across the border, from
Botswana back into South
Africa, to take up the struggle against apartheid.
So when she discovers a young white man who says he's lost, and who claims to be an army deserter trying to escape, does she believe him? Could he be a spy sent to uncover activity like hers?
Handing him over to the army would allay their suspicions about her. But what if his story is true?

Sir William Hamilton:
The Acid Test
It started as a silly season story of a woman's hair turning green. Then fish and animals started dying, people vomited and developed mouth ulcers. Suddenly, the inhabitants of north
Cornwall realised that their water supply had become grossly polluted.
In the first of a series looking at the natural and human environment, Ian Breach tells the story of a public health cover-up.

Second of three programmes The Envy of the World
It was 1946. The doctors were angry and afraid they would become salaried civil servants, forced to work where they were sent. Nine out of ten voted against joining the National Health Service.
'Even doctors now can't appreciate how the doctors felt then.'
But Aneurin Bevan was prepared to use not only charm and persuasion but guile and outright bribery. He said he 'stuffed the consultants' mouths with gold'. The resistance collapsed. In the scramble for free spectacles, teeth and medicine, no one realised the doctors were still unhappy ... Film editor GERALDINE BARWICK Executive producer
