A series of six programmes 5: A Gap in the Clouds
The future of the world's planemakers hangs precariously in the balance - Britain's among them. The airlines are slowly replacing their aircraft with newer, more efficient models, but the aeroplane they most need does not yet exist. There's a gap in the range of designs available, filled at the moment only by ' paper aeroplanes '. William Woollard reports from the United States and Europe on the race to fill that gap. With Michael Rodd , he examines the billion-dollar gamble which faces both the airlines and the planemakers. Choose now, and risk being wrong; delay too long and you're out of the race.
Andrew Neil talks to British Aerospace's chief planner, Sir Peter Fletcher , about Britain's chance - perhaps the last chance - to take part in that race, to be part of the winning team.

Bill McLaren , the quiet man from Hawick, a Scottish borderer proud of his background, content to stay with his ain folk. McLaren, a schoolteacher, is a fervent propagandist for the game he loves-rugby union football.
In the fifth programme in this series, Hugh Mcllvanney of The Observer talks with BBCtv's Rugby Union commentator. The action is fast and furious and the background is fascinating.
