The Tobermory Race

"There's a constant challenge in it. There's more thrill in doing six knots to windward in a yacht than there is in doing 80 m.p.h. in a car"

A film story of the annual yacht race from Port Bannatyne on the Firth of Clyde to Tobermory on the island of Mull-a race that takes three days, through some of the finest sailing waters and loveliest scenery in the world.
Magnus Magnusson introduces the film, which follows in particular the fortunes of Christina, Lola, and St. Mary, three of the 100-odd yachts which took part in this year's race.

Horizon: Experiments in War

Horizon - man and science today.
Introduced by Christopher Chataway.

Rocketry, electronics, and nuclear bombs have radically changed the outward face of war. Robot missiles automatically seek and destroy their targets while 1,000 m.p.h. strike planes hedge-hop on radar guidance. But behind the battlefield is a huge sub-structure of research, where a computer can solve tactical problems in seconds, or a new weapon destroy military principles overnight.
How far are Britain's defence policies governed by the work of her secret army of scientists on the weapons and techniques of tomorrow?

Cameron Country: The Last of the Gunboats

James Cameron's own series of documentary films

This really is H.M.S. Claustrophobia. The sky and the sea are up there somewhere, I suppose, but you hardly ever see them. It's like going off for a cruise in the Underground. I hardly know if it's day or night. It hardly seems to matter anyway...
James Cameron lands on the aircraft carrier H.M.S. Eagle somewhere out in the South China Sea. Down in her depths he meets the men who serve her, struggling to come to terms with the knowledge that she is needed no more.

Midnight Movie: Cecil B. DeMille's Unconquered

[Starring] Gary Cooper, Paulette Goddard
with Howard Da Silva, Boris Karloff, Cecil Kellaway, Ward Bond

In 1763 an unscrupulous trader in league with the Indians plots a rebellion against the Colonists of Ford Pitt-one day to be called Pittsburgh-and wages a bitter feud with a militiaman over a white slave girl.
Among the stars in Unconquered, Cecil B. DeMille's particular hero was the British actor the late Sir C. Aubrey Smith. DeMille has described how although this actor was well past eighty when the film was made he would come on the set each morning with his lines absolutely word-perfect.

Wheelbase: Casino Corner

Gordon Wilkins covers the world of motor sport
with Michael Frostick and Maxwell Boyd

The twisting two-mile circuit 'round the houses' at Monte Carlo makes the Monaco Grand Prix the hardest event of its kind in the world. By Formula One standards, the lap record is slow at 79.8 m.p.h. But an error of judgment can send a driver through a shop window or drop him in the harbour.
Before the 1969 race last Sunday, world champion Graham Hill had won at Monaco four times - beating the record of Moss, Fangio, and Trintignant. Why have so few drivers been able to approach Hill's success at Monaco? Why is it the most spectacular event of the Grand Prix season?

Full House

A live entertainment for Saturday Introduced by Joe Melia Among the main events:
Magdalena Buznea sings
Piaf MAGDALENA BUZNEA , busker extraordinary, was first discovered singing the songs of Edith Piaf in the London Underground station tunnel at Tottenham Court Road. But for Magdalena singing is a second career. Before setting up home in Britain in 1969 she was one of Romania's leading actresses.
Months of frustration seeking work in the theatre led Magdalena to music. Tonight you can hear her interpret some of the songs Edith Piaf made famous.
W. H. Auden
He is one of our greatest living poets. After a long voluntary exile in America, Auden is now once more living in England and tonight will be reading some of his work.
Burnt Out, Blown Out and Broke Pictures and ballads of the American Dust Bowl catastrophe in the 1930s which made farmers of the Great Plains face drought, duststorms and starvation. Presented by BOB REINDERS and FRED BAZIER.
10.5 Blue Bitch
With BETH PORTER , REX STALLINGS RICHARDSON MORGAN, BEN BENISON 'Sell the bitch. Already she's been born to some little man in County Cork, raised on a farm, running wild, schooled to the hare, trialed in at Limerick, sold to Florida, shipped back to Ireland, shipped down to Hackney, sold to me, gone in season, trialed, raced, and now I'm selling her again. What a life. How can I ever repay her.'
Equally at home in plainsong or pop, Matrix is a group dedicated to breaking down barriers in music. They were founded three years ago by clarinettist ALAN HACKER and their musical journey tonight takes in 12th-century Spain, Renaissance Italy and a modern love-song; as well as an unexpected arrangement of the popular hymn, Amazing Grace.
Most respectable robots hold down steady jobs in factories or laboratories. Those in the studio tonight, however, are more eccentric and less of a technological threat to mankind: presented by ROGER RUSKIN SPEAR , member of the late Bonzo Dog Band, the mechanical and electrical humanoids will include a policeman who blows his mind as well as an erratic stripper.
