This year is the 40th Anniversary of the Battle of Britain, and Biggin Hill Airfield - in the front-line 40 years ago as a fighter station - again stages the International Air Fair with displays from aircraft old and new from many countries. The world-famous Red Arrows have recently re-equipped with their new aircraft, the Hawk. Today they make their first television appearance at a major air display in the new aircraft, demonstrating their incomparable precision flying. Together with them, there will be acrobatic skill of the highest order from other service and civil pilots, parachuting from the RAF Falcons and aeroplanes to stir many memories. Raymond Baxter introduces highlights from this exciting occasion.

Labour Party Conference Report

BBC One Wales

The last of five programmes Under New Management
Coral Leisure made their name and money with betting, bingo and casinos. But in 1977 they paid £34-million to buy the Centre Hotel chain.
The programme follows Coral's strategy for reducing Centre Hotels' almost total reliance on tourism in favour of the more predictable business trade. But to attract the businessman, additional investment will be needed to upgrade the hotels and lose their strong 1960s image.
But 1980 has started badly with tourists being put off by the strong pound, and businessmen at home ever more cost-conscious as interest rates hold at 17 per cent. Commentary by MICHAEL DEAN
