The American Thanksgiving dinner is very like our Christmas dinner. But there are some fascinating differences that could give your festive meal a new lease of life this year. Wine mixed with water, water mixed with fruit juice.... No! It's not an expose, just a few of the new drinks they're selling nowadays.
Bon Appetit! And if you've had enough of boring old turkey here's a great pie recipe which will feed all the family. Film director

A series of 13 programmes presented by Colin Blakemore
The famous Professor Aitken could do long division in his head to 40 decimal places as fast as he could speak. As she plays the Brahms Concerto, violinist Nadja Salemo-Sonnenberg feels strong emotions, but her exquisite performance is based on months of intense mental work and precise analysis. Professor BIakemore asks, why does the brain have mechanisms that can perform such biologically useless activities?
The frontal lobes may have evolved to help us plan ahead, navigate and communicate - but now they give us the powers of higher thought: to build imaginary models in the mind, to move others with music, and even to conceive of the beginning of the universe.

Last of eight programmes.
Editor of Blueprint magazine Deyan Sudjic examines Creek Vean in Cornwall. It is a house built in 1966 by Team 4, a group of young unknowns. Two of them are now Britain's best known architects, Richard Rogers and Norman Foster.
'Compared with what they went on to build afterwards, Creek Vean was tiny.
But size has little to do with the richness of architectural ideas.'

Starring Boris Karloff, Ellen Drew.
A Greek general, an American reporter, a British consul and his wife are among a group of people trapped on a Greek island during the war of 1912. Plague breaks out, but a peasant woman warns of the presence of a vorvolaka - a vampirish being that drains all joy from the living, and possesses the newly dead. Boris Karloff stars as the dour general in another vintage excursion into terror by master producer Val Lewton.
