A magical mystery tour of our own flesh and blood with Dr Graeme Garden, Dr Alan Maryon Davis, Dr Gillian Rice and an audience of intrepid volunteers

Standing up is as easy as falling off a log - or is it? Toddlers struggling to get on their feet wouldn't think so. Nor would an elephant. Nor Would anyone who's strained their back. It's a remarkable ability; but it does depend on keeping the hardware in shape

Ludovic Kennedy introduces the fourth of five programmes to mark the 40th anniversary of the atomic bomb being dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki
Tonight: "Threads"
The story of a nuclear attack by Barry Hines.
starring Karen Meagher as Ruth Beckett and Reece Dinsdale as Jimmy Kemp
It's a normal Thursday in Sheffield. Ruth and her boyfriend, Jimmy, are in the pub. The Middle East crisis is just an item on the evening news - 3,000 miles away. This drama, based on available facts, tells the story of a nuclear strike on Britain, seen through the eyes of two Sheffield families - the Kemps and the Becketts - and their designated wartime controller, the city's Peacetime Chief Executive, Clive Sutton.
It traces the events of the four Weeks that lead up to a nuclear war, and the decade that follows. What will life be like for the survivors? In the days months and years to come can the fabric of society hold together: how strong are the threads?
Threads won four BAFTA awards including the Best Single Drama of 1984
"... an impressive achievement on a very large and chilling scale."
