' What a mess some of these shopping centres can get into-vagrants hanging around and so on! What are we doing about this? '
Animator HENRY LUTMAN
Producer COLIN Thomas. BBC Bristol
investigates, discovers, questions This week:
They Steal Children, Don't They?
And anything else they can lay their hands on too! The popular image of gypsies is one of a trail of old iron and rubbish, thieving, drunkenness and violence. A raggle-taggle people who are disliked for the mess they leave, distrusted and even feared for their powers of foretelling the future and putting on curses. Is it any wonder then that ' authority' sees gypsies as a problem to ' tidy up ' - first into camp-sites, then into houses? But as Jeremy James found out, gypsies equally see us, the house-dwellers, as a problem and a threat. What is it that the gypsies really want? What is the way of life they so passionately want to protect? Why is there so much distrust of this minority - only 50,000 of them compared with 50 million of us - who ask for little more than to be left alone, free not to conform with our particular values?

1: The Troubled Brotherhood On the face of it, the British trade union movement is in a mess. Its membership is failing, it is under attack from the Government, and it's short of money. The question posed by a TUC General Secretary 20 years ago - what are we here for? - is being asked today with even greater urgency. Peter Paterson asks whether 19th-century ideals and structures are relevant to the problems facing the unions in 1984, and looks at the changes some of them are now making. Music performed by SAM RICHARDS and TISH STUBBS Producer MARGARET BUDY
