In China a new entrepreneurial class is cashing in enthusiastically on the benefits of growing economic freedom. Carrie Gracie spends a day touring
Beijingwith a taxi driver who took part in the Tiananmen Square demonstrations in 1989 but now prefers making money to protesting. He describes how he willingly gave up his state-provided, guaranteed job for life in order to start up his own business. His new philosophy is that the only equality there is in life is the opportunity to make the most of what you've got. Through hard work he hopes to do just that - and aspires for his son to have wealth he himself hasn't known and drive a Rolls-Royce. Plus Jane Corbin reports from
Cambodia on moves to rebuild the country after years of conflict.

Third in a five-part series in which
Christopher Frayling investigates the art and philosophy of the Middle Ages. The Saint and the Scholar. Tonight's programme focuses on what Frayling calls the "theological prize-fight of the age" in which two brilliant medieval men, who had been on a collision course all their lives, met for a confrontation at the Council of Sens in 1140. On one side there was Bernard of Clairvaux - later Saint Bernard - rural, spiritual, and theologically faithful. Facinghim was Peter Abelard , the best known teacher of his day: an urban, rational, theologically enquiring man. Interwoven with the story of these two exceptional men is the tale of Abelard's passionate but tragic love affair with his learned student, Helolse. When theirforbidden relationship was eventually discovered, he was castrated and she was sent to a nunnery. HeloTse is regarded as a key figure in the sexual history of women, and remembered forthe emotional, poetic qualities of her love letters.
Frayling uses these three characters to examine the nature of fame in the Middle Ages and to reflect upon the enormous changes convulsing 12th century society.
