A postman walks three hours across a marsh in northern Germany to deliver a single parcel. When he retires in a few months' time, he won't be replaced. In a profit conscious age, the West German Post Office can't afford it. Can public services survive? The Europeans have their doubts as we do in Great Britain. Reports from European television look at the costs of running them and what can be done.

Professor C. B. Cox argues that The Notion of Equality is a Threat to Education
Equality of opportunity - of access to all levels of education based on merit - has to some extent been achieved. But some educationalists believe this is not enough, that it still leaves society divided into two unequal classes. They want ' education for fraternity ' and the teaching of working-class culture in our schools which, they say, are dominated by middle-class values.
Professor Cox believes this notion of equality is a threat to the high culture and standards which education has traditionally provided. He argues his case before an invited audience in the theatre of the Royal Institution, London, with: Dr A. H. Halsey , Director of the Department of Social Studies, Oxford University, and other critics. Chairman
