Mary Peters

We all have our own favourite sporting moments. Perhaps it's Bannister's four-minute mile, Virginia Wade's Wimbledon, Red Rum's Grand Nationals, or England's World Cup - the list seems endless. Mary Peters, Britain's heroine of the Munich Olympic Games, kept us all on seat-edge through each of the pentathlon disciplines. Could she win that gold medal?

Intimate Relations
What makes marriage so popular? What special reward makes us continue to seek a long-term relationship with another when the chances of failure are so high?
In America researchers have been attempting to identify our underlying needs for intimacy and some key rules for enhancing it. By observing and questioning hundreds of couples, married and divorced, they have pin-pointed the emotional pitfalls that have become dominant causes of marital breakdown, and shown how couples can avoid these mistakes and make intimacy the basis of a stable relationship. Their studies have direct relevance to Britain, where this year one in every three marriages will end in divorce. Narrator Ian Holm

There are many faiths but the spirit is one, in me, in you and in every man. (LEO TOLSTOY) In this series of films, six people reflect upon the faith they practise and explain how it helps them to live in Britain today. 1: Indarjit Singh
INDARJIT SINCH is a Sikh. He lives in Wimbledon and follows a religion and philosophy founded by Guru Nanak 500 years ago in India. Guru Nanak always stressed the importance of living a life of balance: ' Be like the lotus flower,' he said, ' which having its roots in muddy waters still flowers beautifully above it.'
