Programmes for parents of secondary school children.
Next autumn many children will become members of a larger community. What lies ahead for them and their parents?
Modern educationists agree that the child who gets the greatest help from his parents is the one who makes the fullest use of his educational opportunities.
In these programmes parents are given an insight into how they can help their child when he starts secondary school and at the important moment at the end of his third year when he decides on some degree of specialisation in preparation for his future career. Other programmes will show a mixed panel of parents and teachers discussing how they can co-operate more; how they can help the child to organise his time and his homework; and talk about the friendships he makes.
Introduced by John Norman.

Training in Skills - no more of Nelly?
Presented by David Shute.
with Douglas Seymour, Ian Goodhand, Eric Wheatcroft.
Operators used to learn on the job "sitting next to Nelly", but in a modern fast-moving age this is no longer efficient. Even before the Industrial Training Act a quiet revolution was under way: now the technique of Skills Analysis is spreading.
This starts by critical analysis of how the experienced worker does the job. Then exercises are planned to begin a step-by-step training to build speed and stamina.
By these methods installers of central heating are trained in a week, the accident rate among scaffolders is cut, and in valve assembly production is up by 30 per cent, while training time has been halved.

Britain's own version of America's Billy Graham operates from an office over a dry-cleaner's shop in Eastbourne, Sussex. He has a public relations officer, a business organisation and a fully-equipped studio where 'gospel messages' are recorded for transmission by radio stations in the U.S.A., Europe, and the Far East.
Yet few people have heard of Dr. Eric Hutchings, although his crusade meetings are often packed and he has been an Evangelist for more than twenty years.
Tonight's programme takes a close look at this home-grown business of Evangelism and shows what people think of Dr. Hutchings as a man, and how they regard his crusades.

The film this Sunday stars James Stewart
with Arthur Kennedy, Donald Crisp, Cathy O'Donnell.
James Stewart stars in tonight's Western film "The Man from Laramie" which is about a man's search for his brother's murderer. The film is set in New Mexico and the photography is breathtaking. The direction by Anthony Mann, who has worked with Stewart on several other Westerns including "Where the River Bends", "The Naked Spur" and "The Far Country", is assured and fast moving.
