Anxious to celebrate their success and improve their public image, docklands property developers hold a lavish ball in aid of charity. The cause is the London
Hospital in the city's East End, where the children's wards are little changed since Victorian times.
On the 40th birthday of the NHS, John Sweeney looks at the expanding business of charity fund-raising in hospitals: a welcome addition to state funding or a throwback to a dependence on the generosity of the rich? Research PAUL SAPIN

The fifth of nine programmes The Red and the Green
A wry, yet disturbing, look at the daily grind in the red and green Customs' channels of the world's busiest international airport, London Heathrow. Target flights from drug-growing areas usually produce results but mostly officers have to rely on a mix of intuition, graft, luck and the 'revenue nose'. 'Fifty per cent of those we stop will have something over the top,' says one officer. The insight into the 'Throne Room', where officers doing the nastiest job in Customs wait for the 'stuffers' and 'swallowers', ensures that no-one can ever look at those quiet
Customs people in the same way again.
