1: Crossroads of Christendom
The Vatican is always in the news: the Pope gives an address to the crowds assembled in St Peter 's Square; an Italian banker with Papal connections goes to London and is found hanged; in St Peter 's Square there is an assassination attempt on the Pope himself.... What really lies behind the Visible face of the Holy See? And how did the Vatican become the tiny but controversial state that it is today?

Wine for the Barbarians
'The men that tread the grapes must get into the press, having scrupulously cleaned their feet. None of them must eat or drink while in the press, nor must they climb in and out frequently. It is also proper to have the presses fumigated, either with frankincense or with some other sweet odour.'

Between 1870 and 1930 nearly 100,000 children were sent from here to Canada by philanthropists like Dr Barnardo.
Some of them were orphans, some from poor families and others were the 'gutter-snipes' that Dickens wrote about - but to the Canadian farmers they were all the same, an extra pair of hands. Children as young as 8 or 9 were used as servants, some would say slaves - and they grew up in a world full of loneliness and hardship. Was this the better future that Barnardo and others had imagined for the 'Flower of their Flock'?

Derek Hill at Home
Thirty years ago, enchanted by its position on a lake where it is surrounded by mountains and huge trees, Derek Hill bought St Columb's, his home at Church Hill in Donegal.
Today it houses his massive collection of paintings and objects from all over the world, gathered throughout his own distinguished career as an artist. Now he has handed St Columb's over to the Irish nation and converted his studio stables into a gallery where part of his collection is permanently on show.

Many singers of the operatic stage and concert platform have been tempted by the popular music repertoire. Only a few weeks ago Jessye Norman took time off from performances at Covent Garden to autograph copies of her latest LP, a collection of songs by Gershwin, Jerome Kern and Cole Porter. In the first of six late-night programmes Derek Lewis , the BBC's Gramophone Librarian, introduces recordings of Joan Sutherland , John McCormack , Leontyne Price, Birgit Nilsson , Beverley Sills and others from their explorations of popular song.
