Foggy is in the grip of another enthusiasm. "What better to complete the great British landscape than the great British flag - stirring the pride of future generations." But to reach the summit of Foggy's ambitions needs a certain amount of energy - not too apparent in Foggy's two compatriots, Clegg and Compo.

4: Guatemala: the Next Domino?
' If we were to insist on overnight change we could end up with a red flag, and hammer and sickle,, flying over Guatemala City.'
(GENERAL ROBERT SCHWEITZER)
In Guatemala the newspapers daily print photographs of mutilated corpses - victims of a bloody underground civil war raging between Marxist guerrillas and right-wing death squads. The military regime is ruthlessly determined to stop the country following Nicaragua and El Salvador down what it sees as the road to communism. Once, Washington would have backed the repression. Today President Carter's policy on human rights makes that unacceptable. Will the United States remain a spectator, waiting for the next domino to fall?

What are the quasars, which may be close to the edge of the universe as seen from Earth? Are they made up of exploding stars, or are they the centres of galaxies in which great outbursts have taken place? Patrick Moore talks to Professor Alec Boksenberg about these strange, super-luminous objects which have set astronomers so many problems since they were first identified less than 20 years ago.
