Pembrokeshire breeder Reg Matthews talks to John Cherrington about his life.
One of the first actions of the present Government was to issue a circular to local education authorities telling them, in effect, that they weren't obliged to 'go comprehensive.' So the comprehensive issue is one which will be settled locally.
In the first of two programmes the issues are debated by Brian Jackson (Director of ACE) and Angus Maude, MP
With the conference season in full swing, attention is sharply focused on one of the big problems - pressure on accommodation. All the political parties are now restricted to a choice of virtually two or three resorts, and the steady increase in the number of overseas visitors has also exposed the need for more comprehensive facilities for combining work and leisure. But two wealthy Scottish businessmen believe they may have found the answer - only a few miles from the heart of Glasgow.

Tonight's film, directed by Michael Anderson who was also responsible for The Dam Busters, stars Richard Todd in the part of Lieutenant Commander John S. Kerans, who captained the crippled ship during its 140-mile ordeal.
