Actor Ralph Fiennes visits Clouds Hill in Dorset, the tiny cottage home of T.E. Lawrence, better known as Lawrence of Arabia. Fiennes, who has played Lawrence on stage and screen, has a long-standing affinity for the soldier, writer and leader. He retraces his hero's last years, leading to his fatal motorbike crash in 1935. For the first time, the humble post-war council house is about to be officially recognised as part of Britain's architectural heritage.
Elain Harwood visits Norfolk to celebrate the forgotten talents of Herbert Tayler and David Green, two successful young architects from the fifties whose preference for designing homes rather than cathedrals led them to reinvent the council house to meet people's real requirements.
Gavin Stamp argues that the Firth of Forth bridge is Scotland's superior answer to the Eiffel Tower. Opened in 1890 and constructed with 50,000 tons of steel and 8,000,000 rivets, it still carries high-speed trains across twin tracks. But years of neglect have taken a toll on a cherished monument.

In a feature held over from 30 May, Labour peer Denis Healey conducts a guided tour of his home county of Sussex. An inhabitant of 20-years' standing, he treks around his preferred weekend haunts, meets with landowners from the local tenanted village, chats with the son of Vanessa Bell, painter, sister of Virginia Woolf, and part of the Bloomsbury Group - and rounds off by sharing an operatic duet with a local landlord.

Simon Calder, travel editor of the Independent, ventures into the South American country of Costa Rica. Landing in the capital San Jose, he makes his way through the volcanic, forested landscape to the coast, where he finds perfect beaches and Caribbean influences.

Presented by Penny Junor.
