A series of four programmes
1:Discovering the World
Children paint. What's going on in their minds while they're messing around with all that paint— and why is it so important?
Presented by Joan Bliss Institut des Sciences de I'Education, Geneva
Produced by EDWARD GOLDWYN
First shown on BBC-2
This series of four programmes looks at the world through the eyes of children; how they discover the world around them, and try to make sense of its rules. What does it mean to a child to be told that he's been naughty to break a cup, or to tell a lie? Does he understand the adults' reasons? In this series the answers to these questions will come from the children themselves.

What kind of man is the new world champion racing driver? Thirty-year-old Scotsman Jackie Stewart won the title at Monza last month with three races still to go. No one had a chance to catch him in the last Grand Prix of the 1969 season in Mexico City last Sunday.
Stirling Mess and Stewart's team manager Ken Tyrell are among the motor sporting personalities who contribute to this profile of Jackie Stewart , with highlights of the big race in Mexico City which confirmed him as world champion.
