4: The Volunteers
How responsible is the Younger Generation?
David Nabarro was seventeen when he went as a Community Service Volunteer to organise 400 volunteers in York. Like other young people of his age, he wanted a youthful adventure before going to University. There he joined Peter Harvey who was working in a mental hospital and laying the foundations of his own career as well as pioneering a branch of Community Service Volunteer activity. Laurel Barker devoted her whole energy for six weeks during her summer holidays to set up a play centre for 200 young children.
What sort of people are these young volunteers? What do they do? Why do they do it? This is the story of some of them in one city in Britain.

A new series of profiles on the life and work of artists of international stature
Written and directed by ROGER GRAEF
Produced by ALLANKING ASSOCIATES
Pierre Boulez , the French composer-conductor now living in Germany, is considered one of the most potent influences in modern music. This film includes Boulez's eight-minute piece called Eclat,' a highly compressed study of tonal contrasts and specific effects, seen in detail but clearly explained so that a non-musical viewer can grasp it. The film also includes his public acciaim on the podium and backstage at London's Royal festival Hall, and at a dinner for Boulez and Isaac Stern
with Michael Dean , Joan Bakewell Tony Bilbow , Brian King and Sheridan Morley
