Comin 'Home to You. The giants of laid-back, mainstream rock - cult bands and million-selling transatlantic troubadours who could fill a stadium - played sets for the BBC in the 70s, mainly on The Old Grey Whistle Test, introduced by "Whispering" Bob Harris. Tonight's performances include the Eagles singing Take It Easy (from 1973), Hall and Oates with She's Gone (1976), Little Feat and Fat Man in the Bathtub (1975), Lynyrd
Skynyrd with Sweet Home Alabama (1975),
Peter Frampton and Show Me the Way (1976), and two British names who continue to play to large audiences: Eric Clapton singing I Shot the Sheriff from 1977, and Dire Straits with their 1978 hit Sultans of Swing. Producer Harriet Bakewell

Feature-length documentaries by independent film-makers. Incident at Oglala. Michael Apted's film is a chilling account of the events of the morning of 26 June 1975 in Pine Ridge Reservation, South Dakota. What happened then led to one of the biggest manhunts in FBI history. On that date two FBI special agents, Jack Coler and Ron Williams , supposedly following a red pick-up truck, drove onto the reservation. A shoot-out occurred in which both the agents and a native American were killed.
Of the four men eventually indicted, one was released because the evidence was
"weak" and two others were acquitted. The fourth man, Leonard Peltier , was later extradited from Canada and convicted on two counts of murder in the first degree - even though the testimony which led to his extradition was perjured and evidence against him was contradictory. Robert Redford not only narrates Incident at Oglala but also played a vital role in getting the documentary made. Active in Native American affairs since the early 60s, Redford visited Peltier in prison in and although he still couldn't decide whether he was innocent or guilty, he was convinced the man had not had a fair trial.
