Mother of All Battles
The Battle of Kursk, fought 50 years ago, was the largest armoured battle in history - yet few in the West have ever heard of it. With the help of recently-uncovered secret documents, rare Russian archive material and the eye-witness testimony of those who fought there, this programme tells the story.
Radio Network Australia. In recent decades, Australia has become a major centre for radio astronomy. The 2 1 0-foot dish at Parkes, New South Wales, has been in operation since 1961 and has provided work of fundamental importance. The "Australia Telescope", a network of observatories, now covers a wide area of the continent. Patrick Moore goes to the radio observatories and talks to the scientists who have made the country so important in this branch of astronomy. Rpt

Film-maker Carlos Saura brought the magic and passion of flamenco dancing to the cinema screen with his trilogy of films Blood Wedding, Carmen and Love Bewitched. In this beautifully photographed programme he pays a personal homage to the various forms of sevillana.
An ancient, rhythmic Spanish dance that untrained eyes would describe as flamenco, sevillanas are performed everywhere - at a village fiesta, in a night club, at weddings and christenings. Each dance tells a story and can be performed by young and old alike - the sight of small children haughtily going through the movements is as delightful as the elderly couples dancing with practised grace and elegance.
Featuring some of its greatest stars, including Paco de Lucia, Lola Flores, Rocio Jurado and the last recorded performance of Camaron, Sevillanas is shot entirely in a studio so the colourful and striking images of the artists stand out against the plain backdrop. It has no commentary. The film won the Golden Rose of Montreux award earlier this year.

Everybody's Talking, the theme from Midnight Cowboy, was the song that first brought American singer/ songwriter Harry Nilsson to the attention of the British public. Since his death earlierthis year, there has been something of a rekindling of interest in his music: the Beautiful South have had a Top 20 hit with Everybody's Talking (though Nilsson did not actually write that number) and Mariah Carey reached the top of the charts with one that he did, Without You
(Nilsson himself took it to number one in 1972). In tonight's performance, first shown in 1972, Nilsson sings, plays and dreams a fantasy concert of his own making, with extracts from The Point, a children's cartoon for which Nilsson had recently written the score.
