How the West Was Won Peter de Savary is a businessman better known from the gossip columns than the financial press. But the de Savary of the America's
Cup challenge and Littlecote House is only part of the story. De Savary's recent acquisitions of harbours and ports in the West of England and the Thames estuary indicates a push towards becoming a major force in the more prosaic, but highly profitable world of property development. Rory Cellan -
Jones profiles the man whose purchase of Land's End was just the beginning.

Last of three programmes. Beneath the sunlit ocean surface lies the largest living space on the planet; on average two miles deep, dark, freezing cold, once thought to be lifeless, largely unexplored. Here high-tech submarines reveal not only creatures never seen alive before, but those never seen before!
Unimagined creatures - fish, crabs, and clams, countless hordes of blind shrimps, bask in the hot vents that spout from restless volcanoes.
Elsewhere mussels cluster and thickets of tubeworms and clams live on the natural gas that leaks from oil fields buried below the ocean floor. If the sun stopped shining tomorrow these creatures would live on in their dark world. Photography MICHAEL PITTS

The second in a series of musical explorations into three late Mozart works.
Tonight Jeffrey Tate considers Symphony No 39 in E flat major (K 543). How does a conductor discover the right tempo for Mozart? Or achieve a proper balance using 'modern' instruments? Or make the orchestra 'sing'? Following the workshop, Jeffrey Tate conducts a performance of what he calls 'this gloriously witty, optimistic work'.
With the English Chamber Orchestra, led by JOSE-LUIS GARCIA.

Design: Rodney Fitch
Design is crucial to the three-minute culture. Retailers will spend millions to fix their products and identities in our minds. It's the designer's role to capture the essence of the new and pass it on to the public before it withers into the old.
Michael Ignatieff explores the throw-away decade through the eyes of six leading players.
This week he talks to Rodney Fitch , chairman of Fitch and Co who says: 'Not all design is about classics. A lot of it is for the here and now and if things go out of fashion, so much the better, because they won't be appropriate in the future'.
