A day's walk that any of us could make this weekend in the countryside around us.
Somewhere in Somerset
Alert to the unexpected, three expert naturalists use their skills to reveal the variety of natural life that most of us fail to see.-Archaeologist Peter Fowler Botanist Peter Moore Zoologist John Paling
All you see and hear on this summer walk of a few miles was unrehearsed - filmed as it happened - on a public right of way from dawn to dusk in one day, ending
at the Fish House in Meare.

The First Olympics
The Olympic ideals of amateurism, participation and international unity -foundation stones of the modern games - are nothing more than a series of myths. The ancient Greeks had no such aims in their games - and no sacred torch or marathon race either.
Where did the modern games get such ideas? What were the games of the ancient Greeks really like? How could they have continued for 1,000 years without a single interruption?
Tonight, M. I. Finley , Professor of Ancient History at Cambridge University, tells the story of the first Olympic Games from their beginnings near a tiny altar on a flat plain in Western Greece more than 700 years before Christ.

South Africa Faces Television A series of four reports by Trevor Philpott
2: The White Window
The people of South Africa have had to wait a long time for their television service. Politicians, churchmen and the vested interests of the entertainment industry fought successful delaying actions for 20 yeárs. Now, at last, it has arrived.
This programme explores some of the problems of setting up a TV system in a country 1,000 miles long and 1,000 miles broad, with two white and seven black languages. How did they set about finding the men and the money? What kind of service is this controversial country likely to get?
