Germany is the Island of Mainau and its spectacular gardens: 110 acres of paradise whose history dates back to the knights of the Crusades. It was in 1853 that Grand
Duke Frederick first planted an arboretum. Since 1932, the present owner Count Lennart Bernadotte has cultivated a floral wonderland. For the hundreds of thousands of visitors who pay homage to Mainau, these gardens have become a gardening Mecca. A WGBHtv production Producer RUSS MORASH

In the first of six programmes, Michael Buerk rediscovers the city where he was brought up. He tells how a market town mushroomed into the workshop of the world, and of the extremes of poverty and prosperity this caused. Producer DAVID NELSON

The Market Will Decide
The Government tells us that in their free enterprise boom economy we've never had it so good. But many find themselves getting poorer, not richer: people like
Bernadette Kendell , from an estate near Halifax, who is so desperate for money she's made Christmas crackers at home for 30 pence an hour; or Flo Udoh , a pensioner from
London, who has to resort to putting potatoes in tinned soup as a main meal of the day - people who've been left behind by market forces, yet whose day-to-day struggle is affected by events and decisions beyond their control.

Open Space is the series where the public can make programmes under their own editorial control helped by the Community Programme Unit.
Next Sunday a beautifully restored 1907 Itala sets out to repeat an epic expedition from the pioneering days of motoring. In that year, the same car won the famous Peking-Paris race by three weeks. William Woollard tried it out in Turin, before it left for China.
In 1989, a Range Rover might prove a more appropriate choice for such a trip. Chris Goffey compares this latest model with the best Japanese competition, the new V6-engined Mitsubishi Shogun. At 110 mph sideways over slippery dirt on slick tyres, Tiff Needell reports on his initiation into the sport of rallycross at the British Grand Prix.

Eight films in which David Jessel takes up the cases of people whose lives have been shattered by injustice. 2.Awake and in Pain 'It's like being buried alive
. If I'd have died it would have been an easy out.'
There are three million operations performed in Britain's hospitals every year. Tonight's film exposes one of surgery's better kept secrets - that modern anaesthetic techniques can go wrong - and some patients undergoing surgery are fully conscious, yet powerless to move, cry or draw attention to their agony. Doctors say it rarely happens, but as Taking Liberties shows, their attitude often adds to the patients' injuries.
