Knickerbockers in Knightsbridge
Hill House School, one of the largest prep schools in Britain, is unlike any other. It has no governors, no parent/teacher association, no office, no secretary, no typewriter. Founder Colonel Stuart Townend , Empire
Games gold medallist, 80 this year, still runs the school in his own unconventional way. 'Colonel Bossyboots', the News of the World dubbed him - but he didn't mind. 'I'm the King of Hans Place ,' he says. Producer GRANT MUTER 40 Minutes editor

A solo voyage with Pete Goss. " For a time the 25-year-old marine from Cornwall feared his boat was breaking up as he raced 3,000 miles across the Atlantic. But he kept going. The result is a unique record of one man's battle against the elements; his thoughts as he faces continuing storms, his emotions as he is visited by whales and dolphins.

One of the grestest man-made disasters of the 20th century was the famine of 1932-3 in the Soviet Union. This harrowing film, made in the West, gives eloquent testimony to what remains a largely unknown tragedy and, until very recently, a taboo subject in the USSR, even in the Gorbachev era. This film has never been shown in the Soviet Union. A senior Soviet historian,
V. A. Tikhonov , has flown over from Moscow to see it, and after the screening he gives his reactions to Peter Frank of Essex University. Director STAWKO NOWYCKI for the Ukrainian Famine Research Committee, Canada

This film, first shown in 1981, was the BBC's contribution to the Bartok centenary and won the first prize at the Golden Harp Festival in Ireland.
In 1906 the young Bela Bartok set out to discover the forgotten music of his people. He found a vast treasure of folk music all over Eastern Europe, and he called his discovery 'a miraculous circumstance'.
In this film the late A. L. Lloyd retraces Bartok's journeys through Hungary and Romania to rediscover that treasure of native music.
