A quarter of the world's population is Chinese. Nine hundred million in Communist China and the rest scattered over south-east Asia and beyond.
' I think we in the West define religion in a particular way. There has to be a god, he has to be' the one god; worshipping the one god means religion. But when I've asked in Taiwan about Chinese religion, I've often been steered towards people doing quite simple domestic things..... Paying respects to an elder. Balancing the flavours in cooking. Perhaps it's a matter of definitions.....

Ceramics
The fascinating story of ceramics is a tale of copy, copy and copy again, with the English copying the French copying the Chinese, and everyone trying to pass off their copy as the original.
Tonight, John Fitzmaurice Mills reviews this intriguing legacy of deception and, if you thought you were clever enough to find your way through centuries of deception via your knowledge of china marks, may surprise you as he shows you how they, too, can be faked.

Today, the shares of a company were quoted on the Stock Exchange for the very first time, and the Chairman David Quayle achieved his dream. The company is B & Q Ltd, a do-it-yourself retail chain. DAVID QUAYLE started the business ten years ago with just E80 in his pocket. It is now worth as much as £10-million.
In The Money Programme, Moyra Bremner traces the steps that the Chairman and his management team have taken in the last four months to make B & Q a public company. Why have they done it and will it be worthwhile?

Ten Years of the Open University
In 1969, when the Open University received its Royal Charter, it had no courses prepared, no students, and few supporters
Four years later it produced its first graduates, and proved to a still-doubting academic world that its objectives were possible. Now it is the largest under-graduate university in Britain.
In this programme we trace the ou development, look at the impact it's had on educational opportunities for adults, and meet some of the people - those who teach, and those who have been on the receiving end of the . products of the distant dons. Narrator DEREK COOPER
