An inside look at education.
According to Wordsworth, children come into life trailing "clouds of glory" with their own unique gifts and qualities. But some parents who believe that the pressure to start formal learning too early can stifle these qualities have chosen to send their children to the Rudolf Steiner School in Brighton, a child-centred alternative to state sector nursery education. Do such schools hold the key to preserving the magic of childhood?
Composer Tunde Jegede was born in London to a Nigerian father and an English mother. At 23 he is classically trained, an accomplished cellist and a leading exponent of the kora, or African harp-lute; his work embraces both Western and African musical traditions. This film follows his personal journey in London, Cambridge and the Gambia, and features a premiere of Tunde's composition Cycle of Reckoning - the world's first work for kora and orchestra - with the London Sinfonietta conducted by Markus Stenz.

Nautilus 9.30pm BBC2
It is the personal accounts in this documentary series that really bring to life what it was like to be a submariner. One former crew member describes how his vessel, taking supplies to the besieged Malta during the Second World War, was stuffed with so many sacks of provisions that he had to crawl over them to get to the engine. "We had some amusement thinking what would happen to us if water got into the dehydrated cabbage... it wouldn't leave us much room to move about," muses the then captain. Another (one of an inexperienced crew on that "Cadillac" of submarines the USS Silversides) has lived to tell the terrifying tale of when he was inadvertently left aloft on the conning tower as the boat went into a crash drive.
As well as these interviews, archive footage and dramatic reconstructions recreate the intensity, the danger, the quiet and the sheer boredom of life on board HMS Rorqual, USS Silversides and the U-552.
