A live outside broadcast
Appropriate names for two of the hardest rock climbs in Scotland, set 2,000 feet up in the mountains of Glencoe. Outside broadcast crews have rigged 16 tons of cable to carry live pictures from the cliff face, as four climbers attempt routes which the manual describes as 'extremely severe'.
Joe Brown, rock climbing's most famous name, is joined by three young climbers - Murray Hamilton, Dave Cuthbertson and Jacky Anthoine. All four are climbing without mechanical aid, the bolts and pitons that are no substitute for toes and fingertips.

What price Beethoven now?
This rhetorical question, from an article written some years ago by one of the most distinguished and socially concerned of English composers, is turned back on him at the outset of this conversation with Bernard Levin.
Sir Michael Tippett , 75 this year, talks of his own creative processes, and of the obligations of the creative artist to his fellow men in a time 'where there are questions and no answers'.

starring Isabelle Huppert
Christine Pascal , Mathieu Carriere Jenny, a perfectly normal 17-year-old Swiss schoolgirl, is found lying dead in a snowy forest. Her death is alarming because there is nothing in her life to account for it. Isabelle Huppert , who won international acclaim for her role in The Lacemaker, brings a spell-binding force to the enigmatic and sensitive character of Jenny, whose last week is shown in flashback. In complete contrast is Jenny's friend, Lise, who has no hesitation in picking up the battle-axe of life.
