Public Enemy No 1
In 1957, when unemployment was less than 350,000, the slogan was 'You've never had it so good.' If someone then had predicted that 20 years later the jobless would total over one-and-a-half-million with no riots or political upheavals, that person would surely have been led away quietly.
Now, in 1978, CHRISTOPHER BRASHER looks ahead to 2001 with the help of a specially-commissioned survey. How many will be unemployed then? Will society be split between those in work and those condemned to the dole? If so, will there be violence ... terrorism? Or will we have transformed our attitude to work, cutting the working week and spending more time on the things that interest us?
This programme examines the forces at work in Britain today and looks for a cure for one of the most dangerous diseases of Western society.

An Everyman report by Peter France
Sport has always been a competition for physical supremacy, but many leading athletes today are discovering that it can play a radically deeper part in their lives: that sport can be their path to enlightenment.
Ian Thompson: "I get out of running what a lot of people get out of going to church."
Arthur Ashe: "It's like having a nervous breakdown but you don't care."
David Hemery: "Sport can be a Western form of zen."
The inner game is both a technique and a philosophy of sport. Tim Gallwey, author of "The Inner Game of Tennis", teaches Peter France the technique by means of a tennis lesson: "You learn control only when you lose control." Racing driver Jackie Stewart, tennis players Arthur Ashe and Mark Cox, cricketer Mike Brearley, marathon-runner Ian Thompson, hurdler David Hemery, report on their personal experiences of the wider philosophy: that sport is the ideal means of fusing body, mind and spirit; and can generate ecstatic states surprisingly similar to those described by religious mystics.
Barry Norman returns with a fortnightly round-up of news, reviews and interviews from the movie-world.
Grease: John Travolta , in his first film since Saturday Night Fever, co-stars with Olivia Newton-John in a 1950s-style musical.
The Wild Geese: Richard Burton talks about the filming in South Africa of this story about a group of mercenaries who attempt to rescue a deposed African President.
Heaven Can Wait: Warren Beatty , Julie Christie and James Mason star in a remake of the 1941 fantasy Here Comes Mr Jordan , which tells of a young athlete called to Heaven before his time.
