The last of nine episodes The Conjurer Judged
Stereo (Details: Wednesday 12.27pm)
In the Middle Ages, every prudent desert traveller would pack a mirror to give protection against the lethal stares of basilisks. It was common knowledge that if flying dragons left their dank and venomous caves for the air above Britain, trouble was brewing for the King or the Church.
Peter Hogarth , of the University of York, tells some tales about the role of mythical beasts in medieval society, and discovers that the greatest slayer of dragons was not St George but a Swedish zoologist.

The Great Feast by MANNU BHANDARI dramatised by WILLIAM ASH
A young man is found dead following the burning of homes in the quarter of the 'Untouchables' (Harijans), in his Indian village. While it is obvious to all that there has been an official cover-up, it is equally obvious that everyone of political substance wants to use the incident for their own ends. Saxena, a local police officer, might have to take a stand in pursuit of the truth.

No one knows whether autistic children feel the same, or see life in the same way, as other people. All that is certain is that they bring special agonies and very special joys in their wake. Written and presented by Bert Tosh
