After 30 years working in a bank, Monsieur Verdoux is sacked during a depression. To support his wife and child he becomes a modern Bluebeard, marrying rich women all over the country and murdering them as soon as he has acquired their property.

The Restoration of St Lawrence, Whitchurch In 1715 the finest French and Italian painters working in England were brought together to create, for the flamboyant Duke of Chandos, a church in the fashionable baroque style. Until three years ago it looked certain that this last glimmer of the Duke's glory was doomed to fade and crumble. But enthusiastic efforts by the parish raised the enormous sum of money needed to restore the whole interior, and a team of specialist restorers from Germany have recently completed the work. Michael Bryant tells the story of this major restoration project. with contributions from

The final episode starring Alan Alda as Hawkeye, Mike Farrell as B.J., Harry Morgan as Col. Potter, Loretta Swit as Hotlips. David Ogden Stiers as Winchester, Jamie Farr as Klinger, William Christopher as Fr Mulcahy.
The end of the war looms large but Hawkeye is too busy fighting his own battles as a patient in the Army psychiatric hospital to notice. Back at the 4077th war is still disturbing the peace. Charles is a sitting target when a tank parks on the latrine and after Mulcahy puts his ear to a shell he finds it hard to hear confession. Potter and Hotlips go out fighting. B.J. gets out early, and Klinger finally meets his match... This feature-length episode ending the 11-year run drew the largest audience in the history of television - an estimated 125 million viewers - when it was broadcast in the US in 1983.
