Arctic Summer
In 1974 a group of boys from Clifton College, Bristol, went on the first-ever British school expedition to Baffin Island in Arctic Canada.
Today's film shows the highlights of their two-month expedition in a land which is in darkness for three months of the year. The boys tell how they climbed glaciers, conquered previously unclimbed mountains and discovered wildlife during the brief Arctic summer.

A series of 6 programmes
Is Britain prepared to risk a whole year's revenue from the North Sea oil bonanza melting away on one industry?
3:British Steel
The British Steel Corporation is currently seeking a further government investment loan over the next five years of at least E5,000 million. Michael Rodd visits steel plants of all shapes and sizes in Britain and Europe to ask whether we can hope to compete with the rest of the world in all branches of steel-making.
Andrew Neil talks to Sir Charles Villiers , Chairman of the British Steel Corporation, and to Select Committee member Michael Thomas , mp, about the risks of making this massive new investment in the steel business.
With William Woollard , The Risk Business team follows the breath-taking booms and slumps of a nationalised industry where rewards might be magnificent, but where mistakes now will cost billions of pounds.

The Swan in the Sky
Cygnus, the Swan, is one of the most beautiful of the constellations, and it contains some spectacular objects, including the very luminous Deneb - a star at least
10,000 times more powerful than the Sun-and the lovely coloured double star Albireo. Very recently astronomers have found a new object in Cygnus-a star surrounded by a highly luminous disc from which planets may be in the process of formation.
In this programme, Patrick Moore shows where to look for Cygnus, and describes some of the interesting objects on view there.
