The Prime Minister, the Right Hon Margaret Thatcher, MP, in a live interview with David Dimbleby.

At the beginning of this year, Mrs Thatcher became the longest-serving British Prime Minister this century. Now in its third term in office, her Government shows no sign of flagging. It is embarking upon a set of radical proposals for education, for local Government, for welfare provision and for privatising water and electricity industries.

Her critics, not all of them from the Opposition benches, accuse her of pursuing her vision of a new Britain at the expense of the social fabric of society. Mrs Thatcher answers her critics and talks to Panorama about her plans for Britain's future.

A ten-part series which tells the story of Hollywood from the coming of sound to the present day.
The Coming of Sound
In 1927 Al Jolson sang and spoke in The Jazz Singer and the sound era had officially arrived. Hollywood was in panic. How would the silent stars adapt to the new medium? Broadway actors moved west in droves. For a while the sound man was king. With the primitive sound equipment words dominated the action.
But by the end of the decade the transition was complete. With
