[Starring] Randolph Scott, Ann Richards

Before Quinto became part of the Union, it was a tough, lawless place - the refuge of such notorious desperadoes as Frank and Jesse James, The Dalton Brothers, Belle Starr and Sam Bass. Into this outlaw stronghold rides Texan sheriff Mark Rowley on the trail of The James Boys, and Henryette Alcott, a crusading newspaper editor determined in her campaign to make Quinto part of the Oklahoma territory.

An investigation by Margo MacDonald

Five-year-old Caroline Hogg was abducted from Portobello near Edinburgh on the evening of 8 July 1983. Her body was found ten days later in a lay-by near Twycross in Leicestershire. Why is her killer still at large? After 18 months of painstaking enquiry the police still haven't made an arrest. But in tonight's programme they review new information they think will lead them to Caroline's killer. Key witnesses who saw Caroline at the time she was abducted talk about what they saw -and felt-that evening.

Presented by Peter France Reagan's Cowboys
Why have successive presidents celebrated the cowboy as all-American hero? The Age of Chivalry is Dead But did it ever flourish? How true is the picture painted of the knights in shining armour, enchanted castles and fabulous tournaments in medieval romance.
The Hidden Hippopotamus A hundred years ago the scramble for Africa by the European imperial powers began. Timewatch reconstructs a single incident between Christian missionary and African chieftain that suggests the dominance of European over African was not always as straightforward as might be thought.
