Four films from the South about people who find their pleasure up and doing.
1: The Veterans
Early on summer Sunday mornings, long before most people are awake, cyclists in multi-coloured racing vests can be seen dashing along the deserted roads. This programme follows members of the Veteran Time Trials Association on one of their competitions in the New Forest. It's their firm belief that cycling encourages fitness and fosters the competitive spirit, even for the over-70s.

The seventh in a series of nine documentary films about the Bolton Area Health Authority. A Working Day
All days in a hospital are a mixture of drama and routine. If the routine was neglected, every drama would be a tragedy.
-A plastic surgeon has to correct six-month-old Joanna's cleft-palate. -The finance sub-committee are apportioning next year's budgets. - In Out-patients the staff are injecting varicose veins with a new drug.
- Engineers are stripping down the boilers that supply the hospital with steam for sterilising.
- Out in the town agoraphobics are being acclimatised to open places.
-A woman has a lump removed from her breast: if on analysis the growth is malignant, there will be a mastectomy.
This is just one day.

this month looks at two virtuoso solo performances.
Leonard Rossiter is currently tackling his most demanding role as The Immortal Haydon. Alone on stage for two hours, he portrays the mad 18th-century painter Benjamin Haydon , whose life of wild fantasy and ambition ended in suicide.
Nola Rae is a mime artist, clown, and one of the funniest women on the stage. She re-creates for Arena some of her bizarre and poignant characters, and Michael Dean makes a valiant attempt to interview her.
