And The Weather
A film series based on Sir Winston Churchill's Memoirs of World War II.
Late summer, 1944. After seven weeks of unbroken military success hopes run high that the Nazi world will collapse. But Eisenhower's thrusts towards Antwerp and Verdun meet with increasing German resistance: and, of 10,000 paratroops dropped at Arnhem to seize and consolidate a bridgehead over the Rhine, only 2,400 survive after holding out for eight days against fierce German attacks, while a desperate and unsuccessful attempt is made to relieve them. At the Dumbarton Oaks conference a new world organisation is born-'The United Nations'; and after travelling to Moscow to see Stalin, Churchill visits France where he joins the Americans in celebrating Thanksgiving Day.

A story of a London family adapting to life in a country town.
The Newcomers: A twice-weekly serial about Londoners moving with their factory to the country.
Ellis Cooper, shop superintendent of a firm making components for computers, tells his wife Vivienne that his factory is moving to a sleepy country town in East Anglia and he has been offered promotion to works manager. Vivienne, city born and bred, a modern woman, marriage counsellor, content with her home and social circle, quails; her elder son, Philip, faced with changing sixth forms, hates the prospect; Maria, aged sixteen, keen on riding, romantic about the country, sides with her father; Lance, thirteen, the problem of the family, a cinema fan frequently asked to remove himself from the auditorium, imagines himself roaming the woods shooting game.
Angleton - don't look for it on the map, but it exists - has been invaded many times since the Romans. Half the younger generation have left town by the time they are twenty-one; a penny on the rates fails to raise a hundred pounds; unemployment is above the national average. The council, realising their town would die in a few years, have invited new blood.
They know rich agricultural land will vanish for ever under bricks and mortar, and the days when everyone knew everyone in the High Street will end. There will be strangers, used to buses every five minutes, expressing eloquent dissatisfaction with the lack of amenities.
For the 'strangers' on new housing estates there is loneliness, fear, and boredom. There are also new boy friends, new girl friends, new babies, feuds with farmers, brittle industrial relations, and civic intrigue - copious material for the twice-weekly serial.
