An Athletics Masterclass from the Mary Peters Track in Belfast.
Introduced by Stuart Storey. One hundred and ten metres over ten barriers, set at a height of three feet six inches, in a time of 13.29 seconds! That's what Jon Ridgeon did last year to win the World Championship silver medal for the high hurdles. Rivalry between guests - Sean Kerly, hockey, Lisa Opie, squash, Steven Redgrave, rowing, Gaynor Stanley, swimming, Neil Adams, judo, and Liz Hobbs, water ski-ing - is beginning to show. Stuart Storey (a former
Olympic hurdler himself) and Jon see who will come out best over the hurdles. Produced and directed by SUE ASHWORTH

Domestic sitcom starring Richard Briers as the inept Martin and Penelope Wilton as his long-suffering wife, Ann. Martin tries to co-ordinate the neighbourhood watch.

A series of personal documentaries on the contemporary world. Dinner at Noon by ALAN BENNETT
In the setting of a northern hotel, with its leisure breaks and conference facilities,
Alan Bennett reflects on the subject of class - 'My mother's scheme of things admitted to much finer distinctions than are allowed by the sociologists. She'd talk about people being better glass, well-off, nicely-spoken, refined, educated, genuine, ordinary, and (the ultimate condemnation) common.'
As the events unfold - a Road Haulage Ladies Luncheon, a gathering of Environmental Health Officers, cocktails for the Flower Show Committee
- Bennett observes that people trying to behave are always more interesting than people just behaving. 'The real solvent of class distinction', he writes, 'is a proper measure of self-esteem, a kind of unselfconsciousness. Some people are at ease with themselves, so the world is at ease with them.'
