Phil Longman looks back on a year that has seen the hurlyburly of a general election campaign, and the signing of the first nuclear arms reduction agreement ever concluded by the superpowers; a year, too, of success on the field of play as England's cricketers retained the Ashes and reached the World Cup final, as Europe's golfers won the Ryder Cup on American soil and the British Open had a British winner; but also a year studded with events that can be recalled only with horror and sadness - the Zeebrugge ferry disaster, the Hungerford shootings, the Remembrance Day killings at Enniskillen and the King's Cross underground fire. Written and produced by JONATHAN BAKER
The Words and the Music with James Grout as Victor Hugo
While living in exile in Guernsey, Victor Hugo wrote his epic novel, Les Misérables - a blazing pageant of life and death at the barricades of political and social revolution in 19th-century France.
Almost 125 years after Hugo completed his masterpiece, the ROYAL SHAKESPEARE COMPANY presented ALAIN BOUBLIL and CLAUDE-MICHEL SHONBERG 'S pop-opera of Les Misérables. This montage documentary examines the epic themes of the novel, explores its translation from page to stage and features the music of the show which has broken box-office records on both sides of the Atlantic. Compiled by BARRY CARMAN Producer JOHN KNIGHT BBC Bristol. Stereo

Mrs Arthur Thackerton:
Wogan, The Price Is Right, all the popular television programmes offer two shows: the one you see, and the one you don't - the 'warm-up', designed to put the studio audience in exactly the right mood for the main attraction.
'The warm-up man', said one famous comedian, 'can make a duff show good, and a good show brilliant.' So who takes on this awesome responsibility?
What are the tricks of the trade? And can it all go hilariously or horribly wrong?
Glyn Worsnip finds out - from the stars, the producers, and the warm-up men themselves. Producer IRENE MALLIS
