A Window on the World written and presented by Jonathan Dimbleby
At the flick of a switch we can see a report live-by-satellite from the other side of the world. Yet less than 40 years ago television's only overseas films were weeks old and borrowed from cinema newsreels. Today Britain's four channels run more than 20 hours of specially-prepared foreign news, analysis and comment every day. Jonathan Dimbleby looks back at the difficult beginnings, when only a few brave souls had any real faith in the new medium. And he traces how today's styles of overseas reporting have evolved through technological innovation, editorial revolution and sheer accident. Film editors

Derek Malcolm introduces a prizewinning film from Argentina.
(No habra mas penas ni olvido) starring Federico Luppi
In early 1974, Argentina was split by warring political factions, all claiming to be loyal to President Juan Peron. Faced with a right-wing purge, Administrator Fuentes occupies the town-hall of Colonia Vela. His allies are a hastily promoted sergeant, the town drunk and a crazy aviator. Hector Olivera's witty political comedy, which was made at considerable personal risk while General Galtieri was still in power, won the Silver Bear Award at the 1984 Berlin Film Festival.
Screenplay by ROVERTO COSSA , HECTOR OLIVERA Produced by FERNANDO AYALA and LUIS OSVALDO REPETTO Directed by HECTOR OLIVERA
