Tonight from BBC North East Norham - a Borderline Case
The village of Norham has sat on the English bank of the Tweed for 1,000 years. Back in time it saw much Border bloodshed, great upheavals between England and Scotland, but still carried on as best it could, living on the salmon and the land. Today it's going through one of its biggest-ever shake-ups, but life still goes on .. ; . Director BERNARD HALL Producer DAVID BEAN

The Story of Britain's Royal Builders and Collectors. Told by Huw Wheldon
The last of nine programmes.
Edward VII was the first British monarch to travel widely overseas, a custom which has been extended in modern times with the State visits of our present Queen in the Royal Yacht Britannia.
In the 1860s Edward VII, then Prince of Wales, acquired Sandringham in Norfolk as a country retreat and it has remained a favourite home for later members of the Royal Family. His successor. George V, opened up Holyrood House for State visits to Edinburgh, and Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother has continued the link with Scotland by renovating the Castle of Mey on the coast of Caithness, the most northerly castle in Britain. In this final programme Sir Huw Wheldon looks at some of the beautiful and surprising modern acquisitions to the Royal Collection.

"Television at its best" (Liverpool Post)
