Housey Housey - the Sequel
In 1987 Vivian White reported on the property market. With prices and demand soaring, he met some of the delighted winners and disillusioned losers in the property game. Now, with the market slumped, he looks back across the past three years and asks: who are the winners and losers? What do the experts say will happen to property prices in 1991? And if our home is the biggest investment we make in our life, can we also afford it to be our biggest gamble? Producer Tony Chapman

The extraordinary history of everyday objects. The Tampon
Hailed as one of the top 50 inventions of the 20th century, the tampon actually dates back 2,500 years. The story of the tampon is one of commercial zeal v church, state and medical ignorance. 'Virgins are not, as a rule, capable of using them,' pronounced The Lancet as recently as 1945. Television adverts were banned, so trained teams of nurses took the message direct to the consumer. Now, in Britain, women use four million tampons every day. Producer Kate Broome
