Foresight: The week ahead

Saturday 29 March

Designing the Decades

The filofax, the Lloyds and TV-AM buildings, Amstrad computers and the C5. Ladies and gentlemen, re-acquaint yourselves with the 1980's through the misty eyed reminisences of Richard Rogers, Terence Conran, Alan Sugar and others.

BBC2, 8pm

Killing Hitler

In 1998 The Public Records Office released details of Operation Foxley - a bold plan to assassinate Hitler. However, since the plan wasn't carried out and Hitler killed himself, you may wonder if two hours worth of dramatised hypothesising on the subject might be a bit over the top.

BBC2, 8pm
