Day three of the Lombard RAC Rally takes the competitors through stages in the Lake District and Northumberland's Kielder Forest before the overnight halt in Carlisle.
William Woollard introduces the action with commentary from BARRIE GILL and TONY MASON has the latest news from the teams.
The news: the Vietnam War ends, but there's no let-up from the IRA who launch three bombing campaigns in England. Watergate begins and the Cod War ends. The Arab/Israeli war results in oil shortages and huge price increases in the West. This, combined with a work-to-rule by miners and power workers, results in 'The Three-Day Week'.

Highlander Callum MacRaild is an engine driver of the old school. His affection for steam has survived 20 years of working on diesels, and now he's back on the locomotives he loves. Steam trains were banished from British Rail in 1968. Yet today, on Scotland's West Highland railway, crowded holiday trains are steam-hauled through some of Britain's finest scenery. For driver Callum MacRaild it's a dream come true.

Narrated by Walter Cronkite Can modern science and technology help solve the most famous murder mystery of this century? Now, 25 years after the assassination, veteran newsman Walter Cronkite focuses on those major questions, raised by critics of the 'lone gunman' conclusion, that relate to the physical evidence - ballistics, acoustics, photography, autopsy records. Could one man, acting alone, do all that Lee Harvey Oswald was said to have done? What of the eye- and ear-witness testimony that suggests there was a second gunman? And what of shocking, recent claims that wounds were altered to cover up a conspiracy? Startling new findings emerge in this special investigation made by the American scientific series Nova.
