Regional News and Weather
Presented by David Lomax Today's programme concludes the story of the women who flew in the Second World War with the Air Transport Auxiliary. Today, he tells of the all-women ferry pool at Hamble, near Southampton, and of their adventures flying their aircraft with no navigation aids or radio. How, just three years after flying small club aeroplanes, women like Joan Hughes were piloting the biggest bombers and how American girls crossed the Atlantic to join them. At the end of the war, they quietly returned to civilian life, their achievements quickly forgotten.

Trial in the Jungle
The Tasaday, a remote
Philippine tribe living 'in the Stone Age', are now seen as a famous scientific hoax. But when they were first discovered, in 1971, they were hailed as the anthropological find of the century.
How did these people dupe every scientist who went to see them? Some say they deserved Oscars for their performances, some say that the scientists were romantics searching for noble savages. Horizon has investigated the extraordinary story and arrived at a quite different conclusion. Weigh up the evidence from their stone tools, their language, their knowledge of plants and.... perhaps there wasn't a hoax at all.
