Two new adult Spanish television series go out in the autumn - and not just in the middle of the night. Both are relevant to schools. Spain Inside Out (five 30-minute programmes starting Saturday September 26 on BBC2, 10.40am; repeated on the Learning Zone from 28 September) will make stimulating viewing for A-level students. Billed as "a thinking person's guide" to Spain, it is presented by our own Robert Elms and Inka Marti, a star name on Spanish television. It starts in Madrid and takes a variety of routes around southern Spain, ending up at Sanlucar de Barrameda in the south-west. Famous Spaniards appear, but the series is mostly in English.

Talk Spanish (six 15-minute programmes on BBC 2, Learning Zone September 28-29) features many young people and is well suited to GCSE pupils. Set in Valencia, the programmes deal with subjects such as greetings, buying drinks, where you live, time, booking hotels and buying food. An accompanying course book, audio cassettes, television study guide and web site are available.
