: Free Time: 1: Housewife's Choice?

Five programmes on outside interests for women at home.
Introduced by John Stockbridge.
(Repeated on Monday, 7.0 p.m. BBC-2)

Free time: how to make it, and what to do with it. That's what these five programmes are about. Once marriage and maternity were all a woman seemed to want. But not today. Many feel hemmed in. The kitchen has become a prison, they say, and a baby bolts the doors.
How can they reconcile a life of their own with a job well done for children and husband? But these are not programmes about moaning malcontents: they concentrate on women who are tackling these problems - making new friends, finding fresh outlets, learning something new, and even embarking on part-time work.


Presenter: John Stockbridge
Director: John Eidinow
Executive Producer: Beryl Radley

: Car-Wise: 1: The Braking System

Ten programmes on car maintenance and the overhaul of an engine with Barry Bucknell and Doug Mitchell.
from the South and West
Repeated Wednesday, 7.0 p.m. (BBC-2)

What with the Budget and the garage bills, every motorist tells himself sooner or later that he 'must do more jobs himself'.
But many drivers who know how their cars work lack the confidence to undertake maintenance and repair. This series fills the gap.
Barry Bucknell, garage owner with a Daimler apprenticeship behind him, takes individual topics-the brakes, distributor, dynamo, carburettor; and Doug Mitchell, editor of Popular Motoring, undertakes the complete stripping and re-building of a family car engine.
If you're a handyman, watch the programmes with your Car-Wise worksheets; if you're a beginner the series will help you to anticipate trouble and talk intelligently to your mechanic.


Presenter: Barry Bucknell
Presenter: Doug Mitchell
Producer: John Dobson

: The First Lady: Ministry Approval

by Alan Plater
starring Thora Hird, Robert Keegan, James Grout and Henry Knowles

A perfect case for Sarah Danby at 8.15

Furness, setting of The First Lady, is a mixture of older housing areas - cramped, badly built, but with a well-knit social coherence; and the new estates, Ministry-approved but often bleak and boring.
But it is for one of these new housing estates that Furness Council Architects' Department wins a prize for design. The department is particularly proud of this award, and all rejoice.
However a sour note is struck when the leader of the estate Tenants' Association comes to see Sarah Danby and tells her that it would be sheer hypocrisy for the Council to accept the award. He cites the isolation of the estate, lack of community facilities, bisection by a major road, and the misery of many of the residents. A perfect case for Councillor Sarah Danby to do some investigating of her own.
