Presenting a New Face
The plastic surgeon is often thought to be concerned only with cosmetics.'
But there are more important developments: children with hare lips or cleft palates able to talk naturally; lost thumbs or fingers replaced by skin grafts; new jaws and faces for disfigured cancer patients - a whole world of remedial surgery made possible by skilful surgeons who need more than 12 years to train.
Compiled and narrated by Tony Van din Bergh

On the 20th of July the whole navy of the Englishmen made out and purposed to set on the Frenchmen. But in the setting forward, through much folly, one of the King's ships, called the Mary Rose , was drowned in the midst of the haven ... In her were Sir George Carew , Knight, and 400 soldiers.
For nearly 430 years the Mary Rose has lain at the bottom of the sea, off Spithead, in an almost perfect state of preservation. Ten years ago Alexander McKee began his search for the ship and now he hopes she can be weighed up and saved.
Victor Lucas tells the fascinating and tragic story of Henry VIII 's Mary Rose.

What Is to be done?
In periods of national crisis there are always more questions than answers. The question in the title was originally posed by Lenin; this first programme in the new series of Analysis applies it to our current ills in Britain.
A year after joining the Common Market our conflicts with our partners in Europe are almost as sharp as those which divide us on industrial and social issues at home.
Are there political solutions to our economic problems? Have we done too little or attempted too much? How relevant are appeals for national unity? What elements of consensus exist about the sort of society we wish to live in? Presented by Ian Mclntyre Producer ANTHONY RENDELL
