The Message of the Genes by Dr Walter Bodmer 3: Genetic Engineering
The message encoded in our chromosomes contains more information than a 100-volume encyclopedia.
But sometimes it contains errors that can lead to terrible human afflictions. If we could isolate a specific gene out of the mixture of millions we might be able to make life more pleasant for sufferers of inherited disorders.
Director STUART MCDONALD Producer MAX WHITBY Executive producer DAVID PATERSON
(Fourth lecture tomorrow at 5.0 pm )

'The real likelihood of the legend of Little Red Riding Hood is that the grandmother ate the wolf and used its skin as a bed rug.'
Two obsessions have dominated John Aspinall 's life - gambling and a love of wild animals. In 1956 a big win enabled him to buy
Howletts, a country estate which he has turned into a unique zoo - a zoo where emotional bonding between keepers and animals is deliberately fostered. Narrator Derek Jones Directed and produced by ROY DEVERELL

'I did not think as a boy from Lambeth that I would one day be discussing business with the presidents of large organisations in New York, or that I would stand looking across Sydney Harbour.'
Brian Mott came from a neighbourhood of slums and council flats. Twenty-five years ago he appeared in the documentary We Are the Lambeth Boys, about a group of teenagers who were members of one of London's largest youth clubs. Today he runs a million-dollar international company.
Tonight the Lambeth Boys are reunited at their old youth club, and their fate and fortunes are told in this documentary about what became of the generation which had 'never had it so good'. The football club boss comes face-to-face with the railway carriage cleaner. When they last met they were teenage friends laughing and joking together.
'I'm going to tell you something, I can get more money on the dole than I can working,' says Percy angrily. 'After three-and-a-half years' unemployment, it's no bloody honey, mate, it's a bloody headache!'
(A new generation of Lambeth Boys have their say tomorrow at 8.0pm)

by Dora Russell with Sally Hardcastle In the second of two programmes, Dora Russell talks to Sally Hardcastle about her involvement in the general elections of the 1920s and 1930s, when she stood as a Labour candidate in Chelsea, and her efforts to persuade the Labour party to adopt as party policy the free dissemination of birth control advice.
Now 90 years old, she looks back on her happy years with Bertrand Russell which ended, sadly, in a bitter divorce, and on her time at the Ministry of Information during and after the Second World War.
