Another chance to see country superstar Garth Brooks playing his individual brand of music in front of more than 50,000 fans in the Texas Stadium in Dallas. By means of spectacular pyrotechnic and special effects the stage appears to be ringed with smoke and fire, and Brooks himself soars 150 feet above the audience on invisible wires. Highlights of the show include Standing outside the Fire, Honty Tonk Association, That Summer, Thunder Rolls, Ain't Going Down ('Til the Sun Comes Up), and Brooks's solo saxophone performance on One Night a Day.

Continuing the re-run of the acclaimed 26-part documentary series telling the story of the Second World War.

The Allied forces fight their way across the Pacific towards Japan and the Philippines in a two-pronged attack led by rivals - in the south west General MacArthur and in the central Pacific Admiral Nimitz. In perhaps the bloodiest campaign of the war, each island and atoll has to be taken by storm, with the Japanese showing fanatical resistance and fighting to the last man. On one island, Peleliu, 40 percent of the Americans taking part are either killed or wounded, and the tiny atoll of Tarawa costs them over 1,000 lives. After the bloodbath at Iwo Jima and then the victory at Okinawa, the Americans come into contact with ordinary Japanese civilians for the first time.
