After the Civil War two brothers return home and go their own ways. Dan, in search of easy money, joins a desperate group of cattle rustlers, spreading fear throughout the state as they amass wealth and power. His brother Neal, who is appointed marshal, is given the task of ending the reign of terror.
This early Western by a classic director of the genre, Bud Boetticher , characteristically combines action with the central story of the two opposed brothers.

Workers in the firing-line and others unaccustomed to being heard have their say in the latest programme in this occasional series. The Enemy Within
Barrister Michael Mansfield argues that the enemy within are not trade unionists, but those who would restrict their freedom. He represents people who are alarmed by what they see as deliberate attempts to undermine organised trade unionism, and puts their case to those who support changes in the law.

A Patient's Dilemma
Alternative medicine is booming, with over two million people partly or wholly rejecting orthodox treatments. Today, in the latest bid for respectability, the alternative therapies launch their own council, but is their natural medicine necessarily safe medicine? David Henshaw has been looking at the bewildering variety of alternative therapies on offer - and the chaos that exists over the qualifications of those who practise them.
As orthodox and alternative do battle over the patients, he examines the terrible dilemma facing those with diseases like cancer, where the choice can be one of life or death.
