Raymond Briggs and the Bomb
He is famous for books like "Father Christmas" and "Fungus the Bogeyman", whose off-beat humour appeals to adults as well as children. But "When the Wind Blows", although in the familiar comic-strip style, is a harrowing account of nuclear war. Now Raymond Briggs has joined CND and dramatised the book for radio. It will be transmitted tomorrow at 8.0 pm on Radio 4 with Peter Sallis and Brenda Bruce.

Sutton Place
Hidden behind a massive security system, it was for many years the home of the recluse oil millionaire and art collector John Paul Getty. Now the 16th-century manor is open to the public - by appointment only. It has magnificent gardens landscaped by Sir Geoffrey Jellicoe and a brand-new art collection. It provides a spectacular Renaissance setting for concerts and exhibitions.

This week, the General Synod of the Church of England meets to discuss the controversial report ' The Church and the Bomb '. It's the latest in a long line of excursions into the political arena. But what place does the established church actually have in the spiritual and political life of the nation? In a special report Rosemary Ilartill takes the temperature of the Church of England. Plus the Sunday Night supplement.
