Forgotten Heroes One In four British merchant seamen died during the Second World War. Life on board ship was dangerous, poorly paid and carried a far higher casualty rate than any of the armed services.
Yet their bravery and sacrifices have barely been recognised. "Comingbackfrom the sea in the merchant navy I was actually getting assaulted at bus stops - accused of being an army dodger," recalls one merchant mariner.
In this programme the merchant seamen who faced the North Atlantic storms and the deadly U-boat menace to keep Britain supplied during the war years tell their own brave and moving story. Director Thomas Roberts Editor Laurence Rees
n Personal reflections on the best of 20th-century
Grand Central Terminal
The great American architect Philip Johnson was 7 years old when Grand Central Terminal was completed in 1913. The building "is the belly button of New York. It centres you so you know where you are in relation to the city," he says.
He has grown up with it and for him it is "the greatest room in New York. It is timeless, this people's pleasure dome, this cathedral of New York....this room was built for pleasure, splendour. It is frivolous - it is a preposterous building." Director Sandra Goldbacher Producer Ruth Rosenthal
George Eliot's novel, Middlemarch - A Study of Provincial Life, revealed when it was published in 1871 a writer at the height of her powers, the equal of Dickens and the Brontes, the creator of what Virginia Woolf would later call "one of the few English novels written for grown-up people".
Middlemarch has been adapted for television in six parts by Andrew Davies , writer of A Very Peculiar Practice and screenwriter for A House of Cards and To Play the King.
England 1829: as the story begins a new age is dawning, with the stagecoach about to be challenged by the railway, and political reform in the air. In the town of Middlemarch, young idealists like Dr Lydgate and Dorothea Brooke look forward with optimism.
Producer Louis Marks ; Director Anthony Page
