featuring
The Men's Downhill Races from Garmisch.
As a result of the early-season weather problems this lively Bavarian resort plays host to the fourth and fifth events in the ten-race men's calendar. No one will be more delighted than Switzerland's Pirmin Zurbriggen who has made an unsteady start in downhill this time but who won in 1987, the last time the race was held here.

Piracy in the Med
Modem-day pirates are the scourge of the eastern
Mediterranean, diverting expensive cargoes into lawless Lebanese ports. The cargoes are sold, and the ultimate victim of the fraud is the London insurance market. John Penycate reports from
Beirut, Cyprus and the City of London on this multi-million pound fraud - how the racket works, and how it's being fought.

A natural history of an ocean narrated by Martin Jarvis. First of three programmes. Island Arks
Sharks give birth in the balmy shallows of the Bahamas. Once, the Atlantic was merely a gash on the face of the earth. As it tore apart volcanoes exploded into a string of jewel-like islands and life climbed aboard. From Iceland to
Tristan da Cunha strange animals and plants appeared, trapped by the ocean. The birds fly free - Cory's shearwaters journey across two hemispheres, albatrosses soar to the cold edge of Antarctica, and penguins 'fly' under the frozen sea. Photography MIKE POTTS ,

Advertising: John Hegarty Americans switch TV channels every three minutes. Spurred on by easy money, and instant communication we absorb and forget ideas faster than ever before. The three-minute culture entertains and entices us into buying not just products and lifestyles but politics and philosophies. In this series
Michael Ignatieff explores the throwaway decade through the eyes of six leading players. This week he examines advertising with John Hegarty , creative director of Bartle Bogle Hegarty - a man who can sell you sagas about jeans, cars or tights in 60 seconds.

by Tony Marchant
Starring Lynn Redgrave
with Malcolm Storry

September 1982: Pauline and Ray Williams were woken with the news that their 19-year-old son John had been found dead. They discovered he had been experimenting with drugs but the inquest verdict was clear: John had been
'unlawfully killed'. Yet no prosecutions followed.
Pauline could not accept this decision and spent the next three years taking on the British legal establishment.
The outcome of her campaign has now earned her a place in legal history. This powerful drama traces the years of solitary struggle from Pauline's viewpoint.
