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.

A portrait of Alun Lewis poet and soldier
Before he died in Burma In 1944 Lewis wrote some of the most moving and memorable poems to come out of the Second World War. His character was paradoxical : a pacifist who became a soldier, a lieutenant happier with the rank and file than in the officers' mess, a man of action who often suffered intense periods of withdrawal.
Tonight's film, which contains passages from unpublished journals, includes accounts of Lewis by his mother, his wife, and Lord Chalfont, a brother officer in the South Wales Borderers. Side by side with his poems these contributions make an examination of what Lewis once called ' the fragile universe of self.'
Poems spoken by Henley Thomas

What would you do if you were told you had three months to live? ... What you do is carry on living as normally
(TONY WHITELEY )
Tony Whiteley was 34 years old when he was told he was going to die. His son Joseph was three years old and his wife Vivien was pregnant with their second child. 'We just decided that we would act positively ...and make the best possible plans for me and the children so that we would not be left in any sort of mess and so that Tony would feel he had done the. best he could and not left us in any sort of distress.'
(VIVIEN WHITELEY )
' And we all have to help each other - patient and relative and doctor - in the conquest over the fear of death; because this society, perhaps more than any other, is extremely bad at dealing with this facet of life.'

How can it be that 2,000 different chemical reactions can go on inside the cell without a mess being made? The answer to those questions turns out to be alarmingly simple. There is nooverall controlling element.'

Kid Jensen introduces a programme on all aspects of living a full, rewarding and healthy life.
In this week's programme Dr Alan Maryon-Davis and Alison Rice take a long, hard look at hair.
What is it made of? Is it a living part of the body? How does your general health affect your hair? Why are some people blond and some people brunette? Why are some people born with curly hair and some straight? Is it wise to colour, perm or mess about with your hair?
All these and many other aspects of the scalp, hair and its growth will be discussed tonight by Kid Jensen and Dr Alan Maryon-Davis , and Alison Rice will also talk about current, fashionable hair-styles.
