The Barefoot Kid
Jess Harper endangers his own life by freeing a 16-year-old boy who is destined to hang for stealing his horse. The sentence is brutally harsh; pronounced by a judge who believes the boy's real crime is being a Mexican. Written by DICK NELSON Directed by JOE KANE (R)
Bath is possibly the prettiest town in Britain, with its crescents and gardens, Georgian, Roman and medieval architecture. Jeremy and Lisa arrive breathless from Sheffield, are amazed by its beauty, stunned by the marvellous music and stylish film clips contained in the show, and have to sit down for a moment to compose themselves over a cup ot Earl Grey tea and a giant Bath bun smothered in butter. Writer JONATHAN KING production PETER HAMILTON BBC Manchester
Does it Matter What We Eat?
Britain is at the top of the league for deaths from coronary heart disease. Is our food to blame?
'There are some scientists and even some members of my own profession who talk about the fat/heart disease
"hypothesis", as if these links are based on a few experiments with rabbits in a laboratory. We are talking about the biggest survey of health ever undertaken.'
So says Dr Michael O'Donnell as he uncovers the results of that survey and investigates vital evidence on food and health from southern Italy and eastern Finland.
A series of eight programmes William Woollard finds out just how much 'blood, sweat and tears' is needed to build your own kit car and looks at the way in which the British component car industry is cleaning up its cowboy image. For more than 20 years Allan Garland has lavished great care and attention on the exhibits in Vauxhall's own motor museum at Luton.
Now he's retiring as curator and Sue Baker spent a day with Allan and some of the cars he has loved for so long. And Frank Page drives through the Yorkshire Dales to find out how Fiat's new
Uno Turbo shapes up against the opposition.

The Hospital for Sick Children The motto of GOSH -
London's Great Ormond
Street Hospital - is 'Children
First and Always'. Nearly all the children referred here are seriously ill. There is an underlying feeling of tension, but overall it's a happy place. A place for hope.
Sunjeev is recovering from an operation - he thinks it's his
19th. Clare, who is 11, has just had a blockage removed.
'Now I'll be able to grow', she says. 'It'll cost my mum a lot of money in new clothes.'
Upstairs, there's a party for Andrew, who is one year old today; downstairs, there's a party for Princess Michael of Kent, who is opening a new ward this afternoon.
As night draws in, doctors start to go home. 'But you can't just disappear and forget', says consultant surgeon Edward Kiely. 'At least, I can't.'
