There's hardly a square foot of land in Britain that somebody doesn't own -and that somebody else hasn't got plans for. Finding room for vital new cities and industries means something has to go. How much countryside will there be at the end of this century when another 15 million of us have been squashed into it?
From the air the progress of this new Battle for Britain is even clearer. This film looks at some of the casualties so far. It features a Bird's-Eye View of the 250-mile Pennine Way which passes through much of England's most striking countryside - and through almost every kind of danger that threatens it.

For this highly original production from Australia cartoonist Bruce Petty created an incredible assembly of wheels, cogs, pulleys and string on which the money game is played with all the fervour and drama of a major sporting event.

See the amazing economics machine in action as six contestants battle for the championship. And remember it's the same game in which we are all involved!

Mark Boxer reaches Half Way Mark

Mark Boxer is the resident cartoonist ('Marc') of The Times, and Associate Editor of the Sunday Times Magazine which he launched in 1962. At 41 he has achieved a degree of success which for many men would be the crowning point of a career. How can he continue the rest of his life without a sense of anticlimax? This question provides the theme of the programme.
Boxer trains his fastidious and ironic gaze on himself. He recalls early successes and we see a typical Boxer day at present.

A country of 200,000 people can survive and make headlines, whether in terms of fishing limits or chess. How?
Tonight's documentary looks at the Iceland that tourists don't normally see, and traces the development of the country from its turbulent beginnings to its pragmatic present.
