Press pack

With Tess seemingly in more danger, Noel desperately tries to convince her to return to England, as the drama set in an Australian beach resort continues.


Stavva is completely out of it, obsessed with Justine, the girl he met at speed dating. But all is not what it seems. Justine is up to something – but what?


Stavva isn't the only love-struck one. When Kyle goes for a job at Bacino, the café, Pia gets the impression that it's not the job, but Lucia that he is after.


Meanwhile, Peta takes the photo of Addo, the mystery Asian woman and Philby to the police, but DS Wilson can only see the woman as a witness, not a suspect. A frustrated Peta decides to post the photo up around the local area – but Ray immediately tears it down.


Meanwhile, Tess denies ever having seen the mystery woman before, but when Noel presses her, she admits that there is a slight recognition. However, worried that Philby was mixed up in something illegal, she doesn't want to get involved with the police.


While Noel decides to take a swim, Tess is left to make her own way home. Feeling that she is being watched, she becomes positive that she is in danger and, when she receives another threatening email, she races down to the beach to fetch Noel – just in time to see a speed boat run directly over him...


Tess is played by Olivia Bonnici, Noel by Sam Haft, Stavva by Ryan Johnson, Justine by Toni Pearen, Kyle by Louis Hunter, Pia by Zoe Carides, Lucia by Basia A'Hern, Peta by Daisy Betts, Addo by Daniel Henshall, DS Wilson by Shane Withington and Ray by David Ritchie.

The Money Programme –
Where's My Mortgage Gone?

Friday 30 May
7.00-7.30pm BBC TWO

Max Flint investigates the
shake up in the mortgage market

Max Flint returns for a new series of The Money Programme with an investigation into the biggest shake up in the mortgage market in living memory. In the space of six months, the number of mortgage products on the market has fallen dramatically. Approximately 10,000 mortgage products have been withdrawn.


Max reveals the results of an exclusive Ipsos MORI survey which asks the public how they are coping with the credit crunch, if their plans for buying or moving have changed and if they expect to make cutbacks to keep a roof over their head.


In the first of three programmes examining the different effects of the credit crunch and the downturn in the economy, Max asks householders and people wanting to get onto the property ladder how they expect to manage in this new, harsher economic climate. He asks whether they will still be able to get a mortgage and, even if they are offered one, if they will be able to afford higher interest rates.


He meets a first-time buyer struggling to raise the money needed for a higher deposit, a householder keen to re-mortgage as a cheap fixed-term deal comes to an end and a Northern Rock mortgage holder hoping to renegotiate a loan at a better rate with a different lender.


The Money Programme explains how the crisis in sub-prime lending in the United States reduced the amount of money banks were willing to lend each other and therefore why financial institutions are now wary of lending money to their customers. Max gauges the opinion of mortgage lenders and financial experts to unpick the causes and effects of this financial earthquake. He asks if this harsher economic climate in the housing market is a temporary blip or the shape of things to come.




BBC FOUR Friday 30 May 2008
Johnny Cash – The Last Great American

Friday 30 May
9.00-10.00pm BBC FOUR

This major retrospective of Cash's life, times and music, first broadcast in 2004, features contributions from his daughter, Rosanne Cash, and son, John Carter Cash; his long-time manager, Lou Robin; and fellow musicians including Little Richard, Cowboy Jack Clement, Kris Kristofferson, Merle Haggard and Elvis Costello.


Cash was the son of a sharecropper from Kingsland, Arkansas, who sang folk, spiritual and country songs to himself while picking cotton in the fields. In the Fifties he signed to Sam Phillips's Sun Records, scored his first hits and was part of the "Million Dollar Quartet" with Elvis Presley, Jerry Lee Lewis and Carl Perkins.


In the Sixties he created his famous Man In Black persona and became a huge country music star with hits such as Folsom Prison Blues, Ring Of Fire, I Walk The Line and A Boy Named Sue. At that time he was also torn between drug dependency, hell-raising and a powerful spirituality. Cash had long since established himself as a man of the people with his prison concerts beginning with an incendiary performance in San Quentin.


He ended the decade by finally marrying June Carter, daughter of the legendary Carter family, launching his own national TV series from Nashville, duetting with Bob Dylan, befriending the Native American movement and opposing the war in Vietnam while playing concerts for the soldiers in the field.


Although plagued by ill health, Cash reignited his career with a new, young audience in the Nineties, when he began to record with Def Jam's producer, Rick Rubin.


Cash won numerous Grammys and other awards for his last studio album, 2003's The Man Comes Around, and the extraordinary video for the Nine Inch Nails song, Hurt, which revealed Cash as a white-haired old man contemplating his mortality.


Cash died in September 2003 shortly after the retrospective Unearthed, a five CD-set of the acoustic performances with which he resurrected his career in the last decade of his life, and after losing his wife in June 2003.

BBC PARLIAMENT Friday 30 May 2008
1983 General Election
Friday 30 May
9.00am-8.10pm BBC PARLIAMENT

Twenty-five years on, BBC Parliament gives viewers a chance to experience the 1983 General Election through this archive broadcast of the BBC's original, live election results coverage, from Thursday 9 June 1983.


David Dimbleby hosts the BBC's 1983 General Election programme, with results analysis by Peter Snow and Tony King, commentary from the BBC's Political Editor, John Cole, and interviews by Robin Day.


Throughout the course of the election, the pollsters at least had been certain that a Conservative victory was inevitable and that Margaret Thatcher would be returned to Downing Street for a second term as Prime Minister. The closer contest was expected to be the battle for second place, between the Labour Party, under the leadership of Michael Foot, and the Alliance, under its "Prime Minister designate", Roy Jenkins.


Live coverage of declarations and reaction to the results comes from across the country, including reports from Nicholas Witchell in Margaret Thatcher's Finchley constituency, Brian Hanrahan in Michael Foot's constituency of Blaenau Gwent, Kate Adie in David Owen's Plymouth Devonport constituency, Michael Cole with David Steel in Ettrick Bridge, Valerie Singleton in Torbay, Selina Scott in Guildford and Esther Rantzen with the crowds gathered at Downing Street.


In addition, Washington correspondent Martin Bell reports on the reaction to the UK election in the US, and the view from Moscow comes from Soviet press agency spokesman Gennady Gerasimov.
