A hole in the fence around a factory engaged on manufacturing defence components; a nightwatchman who is more of an obstruction to those responsible for the factory's security than he would be to any potential intruder. To Cook it's a puzzle. Watt finds in it a suggestion of a ' cloak and dagger' mystery. Gilbert sees the combination of circumstances as somewhat ironic. But Box patiently uncovers a motive which surprises them all.

with Robert Langley and THE WEATHER
To send two children to even a cheap boarding school costs £ 30 a week of earned income. Yet thousands of parents somehow find the money. What do they pay for? The choice is wide. There are schools where the discipline is severe, the life spartan. There are schools for boys whose destiny is due to be one of privilege and preferment. There are schools for brain and schools for brawn. You pay your money and you take your choice.
This programme has been con. densed from a series of four, shown originally at the beginning of this year. It looks at four schools with very different ideas on what constitutes a good education. Milton Abbey is the newest boys' boarding school to achieve recognition as a public school. and is thriving because the parents believe it will turn boys into men. Lawnside is a college for young ladies, complete with felt hats, Sunday crocodiles, and healthy games. Millfield can be the most expensive of the four with fees up to £ 1,000 a year, but can also cost very little for outstanding or unusual pupils. Kilquhanity House is a small progressive school in Galloway where the pupils make most of the rules and the teachers do their best to obey.
