IF YOU ever did Latin at school, you'll be quite familiar with the concept of a question expecting the answer "No": and surely this category includes the title of tonight's documentary marking 50 years of the UN Declaration of Human Rights - A Better World? (8pm R4). No, but it was certainly a good idea. John Sweeney looks at what the Declaration was supposed to do, and what it actually has done.

A different sort of lost utopia features in Between the Lanes (9pm R2), in which Bob Harris, here sounding off loud and clear, looks at all the changes motorways have made to our lives since the Preston Bypass was opened in 1958, only to be closed for repairs three months later. Some things never change.
