Written and narrated by Julian Pettifer
It is just 30 years since the vast rolling grasslands of Inner Mongolia were proclaimed an Autonomous Region of the People's Republic of China. Here for centuries nomadic herdsmen have tended their sheep and cattle, horses and camels. It was once a fiercely individual way of life. How much has it changed?
Tonight's film looks at two remote communes near the northern border of China to see how the herdsmen and their families are conforming to Chairman Mao's ideological model.

The Racing Drivers, with Raymond Mays , Gunnar Nilsson
Motor racing has changed, probably more than any sport in recent times. RAYMOND MAYS , four-wheel champion 40 years ago, regrets the passing of the ' old cars ' - ' you could see the drivers working at the wheel then, it was a magnificent spectacle - but nowadays the best circuits in the world have been ruined because of safety regulations. In my day you made jolly sure you didn't get yourself. into trouble - the drivers today should stay on the track, they're paid enough to do so! ' gcnnar nilsson, Formula 1 driver, has no desire to return to the ' good old days ' and sees no reason why motor racing shouldn't be made as safe as possible -' top drivers should be paid well; after all it's a living like anything else.'

Creators of modern philosophy
A series of 15 programmes in which Bryan Magee talks to 15 leading philosophers about Western philosophy today. 4: Heidegger and Modern Existentialism with William Barrett , Professor of Philosophy at New York University. The philosophy of Existentialism seems to flourish best in nations recently defeated in war-as in Germany after the First World War (when its outstanding representative was Martin Heidegger ) or France after the Second World War (when the outstanding figure was Jean-Paul Sartre). In this programme, the thought of these key figures is discussed with the accent on Heidegger.
