Tucson
Introduced by Jonathan King In this series of updated repeats, JK goes to the desert of Arizona with huge cacti, spiders and sunsets. JK talks to an astronomer working in one of the world's biggest telescopes, and discovers that we're all descended from stars, looks at how a top television commercial is filmed, and meets one of the most famous movie cowboys of all time - the late Lee Marvin , in one of the last interviews before his death. He also talks to
British heavy metal band Iron Maiden, now hugely successful in the US.
Everyone knows London Bridge is now in Arizona, everyone knows they bought the wrong one - but who is having the last laugh? Plus the usual mix of chart videos, movie clips and ads.

The last in an award-winning series filmed over two years inside the secretive world of Customs and Excise. The Chancers
Dover at night from the white cliffs resembles a Star Wars set - great pools of light, ceaseless coming and going, a relentless stream of humanity, goods and vehicles. This film follows the 'duty men' on the grind of the busy night shift. In this chaos, and against overwhelming odds, there are some chance finds; tobacco, a drugs haul and an astonishing booze discovery. But even with the successes, as one officer explains.'It's horrifying to sit and think at the end of a shift; what have I let through tonight? What have I personally let through?'
