Here is ABC's Top of the Pods description of this episode:

Film Noir from Out of the Past with He Walked by Night, an important film about early police procedural and precursor to the television series Dragnet but much more than that. Anthony Mann's un-credited direction was among his best and he drew strong performances from actors given few lines, making every shot count. Cinematographer John Alton brought the darker sides of Los Angeles to life.

The History of the Brain, produced for the BBC by Dr. Geoff Bunn. Episode 9 - All or Nothing - focuses on the invention of the electroencephalograph, which made our brain waves visible. Invented by Hans Berger, one of its main proponents was the eccentric English robotics pioneer and neuroscientist, William Grey Walter.

And Libby Purves from Yachting Monthly magazine observes the phenomena of the Salty Dog.
