Documentary series marking the 500th anniversary of Columbus's landing in the Americas.
The Sword and the Cross
Columbus's second voyage, in September 1493, boasted 17 ships and 1,200 people: soldiers, artisans, priests and farmers. Their destination was
La Navidad, the settlement founded on Hispaniola at the end of the first voyage. This was the vanguard of Spanish colonialism. However,
Columbus's twin goals, to find gold and to Christianise the natives, were to end in failure. The conquest and enslavement of the Indians led to an impassioned debate in Spain about the rights of the native populations of the New World. But for the Indians of Hispaniola it was already too late. When Columbus founded his colony, there were an estimated half-a-million Indians on the island. By 1519, only 500 remained.

Liz "McGolden" McColgan, arguably Britain's brightest gold medal hope on the track, and team-mate Jill Hunter seek a comfortable journey through the heats of the women's 10,000m before getting down to more serious business in next Friday's final. McColgan, a relentlessly determined frontrunner, was Britain's only individual gold medallist at last year's world championships, and went on to be named BBC Sports Personality of the Year.
Plus a roundup of the other action, on the day that the men's 100m final was run.
Britain's Linford Christie was looking to improve on his silver medal in Seoul four years ago. Has he succeeded in his bid to become the oldest man ever to win the Olympic 100m title? And in the rowing, Steve Redgrave was trying to make it three gold medals in three successive Games by winning the coxless pairs with his new partner, the talented Oxford blue Matthew Pinsent.

Desperately Seeking Nessie
At the age of 28, Steve Feltham was dissatisfied with his life and work installing burglar alarms in Dorset. When a friend asked him what he would really like to do, he replied, "Find the Loch Ness monster." He sold his home and business to finance an indefinite vigil on the shores of Loch Ness, bought a caravan, and set off for Scotland to be a full-time monster hunter.
When he arrived on the banks of the loch, Steve realised he had a few tests to pass if he was to be accepted as a resident hunter. Not the least of these was surviving a hard Highland winter, which helped to gain him the respect of the locals. His dream of escaping the rat race is frequently shattered by the arrival of TV crews, April
Fool jokers, and David Bellamy. Steve's personal diary is a funny, beautiful and inspiring record of his first year at Loch Ness. Lurking beneath the surface of its dark waters is Nessie and, for Steve, it's only a matter of time.
