The fourth of nine films War and Peace
Valera Krylov was 18. Like almost all Soviet 18-year-olds he now has to do his national service. The film followed him through his last days at home, the final farewells, his induction and basic training. It was the first time a western film crew had ever filmed freely at a Red Army barracks.

3: The Scattering
The Armada proved unable to stand up to English gunfire. Underwater archeology offers new clues and raises new questions about the battles.
The homeward voyage was long and terrible. But there was great suffering in the English fleet, too - for very different reasons. And when the Armada got home, how did Philip IIreact? The discovery of a private letter from Philip to his chaplain casts new light on the end of the story of the Armada. Photography IAN STONE Sound MIKE SAVAGE

Fourth of six films on the police and the public.
A Question of Discretion
Police officers don't always enforce the law. They have a discretion. Their decisions - for example, to stop and search a suspect, to let a speeding motorist off with a caution, to charge youngsters with criminal damage - can have big effects on the public image of the police. This film goes behind the scenes of Britain's largest police authority, the Met, to see how young recruits are trained to hold the confidence of all groups in the community they serve.
