BORN TO LOSE
A Twilight Zone sounds as though it might be something natural, even attractive. But it's the name given by planners and pundits to a condition of despair. In nearly every city in this country there are Twilight Zones: where the poor are powerless, the needy neglected and the future is dark and without help. Those born into this kind of twilight can expect nothing but the worst schools, the worst hospitals and the worst housing, and should expect nothing more for their children and their children's children. If you get on, you get out. But most are trapped-in a cycle where aspiration, even self-respect, dies young.
In London at Whitsun, some of them marched from one Twilight area to another. While most of us relaxed they tried to protest. Man Alive marched with them and looked at what they are struggling to escape; and asks-is there any way out if you are born to lose?

BBC-2 Knockout Snooker Competition
An introductory programme to the coming seven weeks' single-frame series featuring the world's top eight snooker players:
Gary Owen Fred Davis (above) Jack Rea Rex Williams John Pulman Kingsley Kennerley
Ray Reardon John Spencer
... and tonight they're all round the same table!
Rarely can any sport, even on television, offer its supporters the top eight exponents of the game in one fifteen-minute appearance. Tonight BBC-2 does just that. Anyone who knows his snooker will agree that these names tonight are the top in their field.
If, on the other hand, your knowledge of the game is limited then we have the best instructors available to teach you some of the tricks of the table. Instead of a pointer these teachers use a billiard cue-in a very spectacular way-and confirm that they really are the masters.
Introduced by Keith Macklin and Ted Lowe

Bobby's guest tonight, the young American singer John Hartford , ' paints ' rather than writes his songs. John abandoned his career as a commercial artist to become a song writer-and doesn'regret it. His smash hit ' Gentle on My Mind ' won him four major awards last year, and has been recorded .by more than 170 artists, including Dean Martin and Frank Sinatra.
