Original story and screenplay:
with Robert Dougall and the BBC's reporters and correspondents around the world
Inflation is a word we read every day. Politicians and commentators talk endlessly about it, but what do ordinary people think? As prices go up and wages go up, the pound seems to be worth less. Desmond Wilcox asks ordinary people in Birmingham what inflation means to them. Young couples say they can't afford homes of their own; pensioners say they can't afford the weekly shopping bill. One car-worker claims he is worse off today than he was 20 years ago.
Is there an answer? Does it lie with the politicians or the people?
Barry Norman previews and reviews the week's new films, including Pulp starring Michael Caine and The Possession of Joel Delaney, starring Shirley MacLaine.

For the greater part of its 400-years occupation of Britain the Roman Empire brought peace, stable government, and for many of the British themselves an un-dreamed-of prosperity.
Large towns like Winchester, Chichester, Bath, were served by great roads, bringing merchants with slaves and luxury goods, the latest fashions, as well as life's necessities. There was running water, public baths, theatres, temples, grandiose town halls.
Britain was apparently well-started on the long road to civilisation.
