3: The Bush Family
In this series of four family portraits, Michael O'Donnell explores how shifting social and moral attitudes in Britain have affected family life.
Are we more self-seeking, less compassionate than we were, with standards slipping and family ties loosening to the point of disinterest - even disloyalty? Or are we now turning our backs on 'permissiveness', in order to embrace some vague notion of the Victorian ethic?
The Bush family uphold and maintain the special values of a Christian family life. How do they fit into an increasingly secular society - and do they, or their children, feel a need to adapt?
Producer SHARON BANOFF (R)
3: The Lion of Rome
There is a message beyond common sense which has been carried down the centuries by a wild confusion of characters - emperors, geniuses, holy prostitutes, gourmet hermits, sharp-witted abbesses, multi-murderers, madmen and poets. That message imprinted itself on the world nearly 2,000 years ago on a hill called Calvary.
Brian Redhead continues his
12-part religious relay race towards the Middle Ages. This week he examines the fifth century and the world of Leo, the Bishop of Rome supposed to have lost his heart and fingers to a married woman. What lay behind the flying deterrent which dissuaded Attila the Squat from invading Rome, and what was the eighth deadly sin? Reader MICHAEL TUDOR BARNES Researcher RUTH BEN-OR
Series producer FRANCES GUMLEY
In company with Kate Binchy and Sion Probert , Mary O'Hara presents, before an audience in the Theatre Royal, Winchester, a selection of her favourite poetry and prose.
'It might have something to do with the landscape - the sometimes terrifying seas or the islanders' independent way of life - but the Arran Islands have inspired a remarkable number of literary works.' Producer ALEC REID
