Tonight: Ian Botham.
He is probably the best-known cricketer in the world, controversial for his exploits both on and off the field.
Tonight, facing interrogation by an audience of teenagers, Ian Botham says: 'At times I am probably too honest for my own good. If I was meant to have done all the things that the press have written about me, my brain would be pickled in ajar and my body would be in the Natural History Museum.'

Fifth of eight films examining the way women's lives have changed in the 20th century. Just a Girl
'I couldn't understand why women had to accept something different, why my brothers would say "You're just a girl", when I was just as good as they were.'
Different books, different toys, different schools and different lessons have made girls throughout the century grow up with quite separate expectations and dreams from boys. Why did those differences develop and why did they persist? How far have we come since scientists insisted that mental effort ruined growing girls for their true vocations as wives and mothers?
