A series of ten programmes 4: Peace with Honour
Neville Chamberlain is frequently identified simply with Munich and damned for it. But what determined the policy of appeasement, how did it change between 1937 and 1939 and how did Chamberlain maintain his position after September 1939?

If you thought the French for bicycle was ' bicyclette' this programme is for you. Le vélo is not just a two-wheeled machine, nor even merely a sport: in France it's more a way of life. YVES MON-TAND sings its praises, and there's a mobile video report on the Tour de France.

A free-wheeling adaptation of the Chinese classic.
A thousand years ago, in China, the souls of 108 knights were re-to fight the tyranny and corruption of the Government. They lived by their wits and their swords in the marshy lands of the water margins of Lian Shan Po. Lin Chung was their leader and never "a day went by without a damsel to be rescued or a wrong to be put right.
Kao Chiu persecutes one of the noblest and richest families in China, as Lin Chung sets off on a journey.

The country celebrated a Royal Jubilee, England won the Ashes. We grumbled about the weather. And there were other things to remember, too.
A series of seven new films
6: A Beautiful Way, to Travel
Hanging motionless in a basket at the whim of the wind - adrift with the clouds in the stillness of the break of day - or gliding slowly down to earth in the lengthening shadows of dusk; at first sight, hardly the image of sportsmen straining every sinew of success; Yet here in Britain this summer, Don Cameron and Dick Wirth were each hoping to become World Champion - competing in hot-air balloons-and we follow their fortunes as they took to the skies. Riding on the wind, balloon pilots throw all their skills into grasping what little control they can find; a sudden gust of wind, and precious yards are lost as they attempt to steer their rudderless craft towards a target. Winning takes skill, courage - and luck. But win or lose, with nature so supremely in command, the elegant, aimless journey of hot-air balloons across the sky is, above everything else, a beautiful way to travel.
