APART FROM the inevitable 1 April current-affairs teasers, there's some grim listening today. Crossing Continents (11am R4) examines the rising levels of youth violence in France, where teacher morale is allegedly at an all-time low.

What If? (8pm R4) considers the possibility of terrorist attacks against civilians using biological agents at a time when President Clinton has acknowledged the likelihood of an incident occuring somewhere in the US within the next 10 years. Despite assurances that such matters are taken seriously here, it makes for alarming listening.

Thankfully, archive material of Kenneth Williams (right) At the Beeb (9.30pm R2) is on hand to assuage anxiety.
