Foresight - The week ahead


Friday 2 July Building the Dream Of the 12 couples who started out on a project to build a dream home, only one will get the chance to live in the swanky pad in a picture postcard village. All is resolved in two live shows today.

ITV, 2pm and 5pm Saturday Exposing Transport - TRL Photographic Exhibition Bit of a late call, this one, since the exhibition started on 29 June.

Nevertheless, it's a fine opportunity to have a gander at the work of the Transport Research Laboratory as seen through the eyes of its professional photographers over the last 70 years.

10am-5pm The Mall Galleries, The Mall, London, SW1 Tel: (0207) 930 6844 www. mallgalleries. org. uk Extreme Machines: Oil Rigs If Wayne Rooney's worth £50M then what value someone with the skills to build an oil platform in the most challenging of conditions so that the world can have the fuel to run its industries? Well, whatever the value it's nowhere near wonder boys' wages.

Discovery Channel, 1pm Industrial Revelations: Working Iron Mark Williams explains how Thomas Telford and the Darby family forged new transport routes through our green and pleasant land. Whether it's as green and pleasant as it was in their day is open to debate.

Discovery Channel, 6.30pm Sunday Euro 2004 Cup Final Alas, it was not to be. Those hoping that England would quaff heartily from the jewel-encrusted chalice of victory were to experience the rude shock of penalty failure. Instead, destined to slurp despondently from the chipped plastic beaker of defeat, the England team and its supporters must make do watching others play out tonight's final.

BBC1/ITV1, 7.45pm kick-off Monday University Challenge - the Professionals The cast of the Archers take on the VSO. Surreal.

BBC2, 8.30pm Tuesday Inventions That Changed The World The Computer BBC2, 9pm Wednesday Alistair Campbell Interviews Peter Mandelson Two of the most charming and sincere men ever to grace the world of politics. Followed at 8pm by a programme on deadly snakes. Really, there is.

Channel 5, 7.30pm The 26th Magellan Three Peaks Yacht Race Don't forget to follow the progress of the Kithros II on the Three Peaks Yacht Race, as mentioned in Foresight a couple of weeks back.

Three of the intrepid five-man crew are civil engineers. Gawd bless 'em all.
