An investigation of transport today and in the next ten years.

The improvement of rail services in Britain and throughout the world is creating a new image for an industry which, a few years ago, seemed to be in decline. Present developments may herald a further revival.

Tonight's programme looks at new aspects of the world's cinema. The Dream Sellers - India's cinema offers a fantasy world where everyone is rich, beautiful, and happy. The lavish sets and glamorous aura which were once the hallmark of Hollywood have turned the Indian film industry into a boom business.
Another Hollywood product has also changed its location with phenomenal success. The Western - Italian-style - tops the popularity polls as more and more 'good and bad men' chase each other through the Roman countryside.

An American Nightmare
...I would first of all never insult my country, America, as I love it... I would, however, in my way, presume to change it.
Ed Kienholz is the tragic biographer of modern America. An artist who never studied art: he supported himself as a car salesman, an attendant in a mental hospital, a dance-band manager and a window-display designer. At the same time he started to make his macabre collages, starting with bits of junk and then incorporating life-size human models to present frozen tableaux of contemporary life.

Believing is Seeing
'Behind Appearance' is the title of a recent book which traces the strange links between the imagery of painting and science in this century and the far-reaching effects our knowledge has on our perception.
Art critic John Berger introduces the subject and talks to the author Prof C.H. Waddington.
