The Story of a Pacific Atoll
Nukumanu is a tiny ring of reef and sand, scarcely a dot on a map of the Pacific. Travellers never go to Nukumanu. But this atoll is the home of 270 souls marooned on a sliver of coral, almost as inevitably as if they had been abandoned there long ago from some pirate ship.
Until recently they have been happy, sustained by the slender resources of the land and the richer harvest of the sea. Today the fragile balance has been broken: the young men have been drawn away to New Guinea or the Solomon Islands, leaving too few hands for village work. Narrator RICHARD OXENBURGH

Tonight - Starting work: A leap in the dark? "The more we educate, it seems, the vaguer school-leavers are becoming about their future careers. They wander unarmed into the jungle of industrial society: to the tiger they are merely fodder."
(Professor Michael Carter)
This week nearly half a million children will be leaving school for good. For most of them four or five years of secondary education will now be followed by a lifetime at work.
Tonight Panorama looks at Careers Guidance both inside and outside of school to discover why, for the vast majority of school leavers, this week will mark the beginning of a series of unhappy, wasteful and often painful accidents as they enter the world of work.
