Fred Harris and Lesley Judd look at the increasing use of computers in cars and show how the Rover Sterling uses a micro to control everything from its fuel supply to its anti-lock braking. With so many electronic devices appearing in some cars the manufacturers are looking for other solutions to the problem of how to connect the electrics together.
On the racing circuit, Tyrrell cars demonstrate how higher speeds are achieved by designing their cars on computer. And from America, Freff reports on ETAK, a remarkable car navigation system which shows a driver exactly where he is on a street plan which moves in front of his eyes on a screen as the car moves along the road. Also from the States, a simple touch screen which will do away with most of the levers and knobs which hang off a car's dashboard. Studio director

In 1860 Queen Victoria fired a shot on Wimbledon Common which marked the birth of an organization committed to assist in the nation's defence - the National Rifle
Association. Today, the NRA has a more sporting image but, as Brian Glover discovers, the heart of its annual meeting at Bisley is still the valued prize begun by the sovereign in 1860 - The Queen's Prize.

with John Pitman
Six films which go behind the scenes of places which are part of the British way of life. 4: AA
Next time your car breaks down or won't start, and the AA says there's a two-hour wait, here's a tip. Tell them you're a doctor or a nurse or a teacher. Say you're a plumber on an emergency call - and you'll get priority.
'It's a good trick', says
Sgt Johnny Towers , who is based at Stanmore, Britain's busiest AA Centre. 'That way they get instant service.'
Today a doctor is locked out of his car. They rush to his rescue. He is a doctor. 'Any patients waiting?', he's asked. 'Well, no ... I'm a doctor of science.' Nice one.
A nun with a flat battery calls in - and a woman with two children has to be towed away. On the M4 a member who 'breaks down all the time' waits patiently for help, along with hundreds of other casualties who haven't thought to tell a lie.

Cambodian Witness
When the Khmer Rouge invaded Phnom Penh, the Cambodian capital, they forced the entire population into the countryside where they were starved, beaten and worked to death on grandiose, impractical
'revolutionary' schemes.
Among them was a young man called Someth May, a doctor's son. Ten members of his family died before he managed to escape to
Thailand. There he contacted the distinguished journalist and poet, James Fenton , who arranged his release from a refugee camp and brought him to England.
For two years, May struggled to write his story with Fenton's help, and over the last 18 months Arena filmed the two writers as they overcame the barriers of language, memory and intense emotion to create a shocking and vivid memoir of his horrific experiences. Film editor DAN RAE
