Do not go gentle into that good night,
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.
So wrote Dylan Thomas on the death of his father. And in Wales today similar feelings are being aroused over the death throes of Europe's oldest living language. 'Without a Welsh language television channel the language will die' claims Gwynfor Evans , the 67-year-old President of Plaid Cymru, the Welsh National Party. He is currently campaigning throughout Wales for such a TV service and on 6 October will start a hunger strike until death, unless the Government ceases its ' betrayal ' of an election pledge to establish a Welsh language service on the new fourth channel.
David Jessel reports on the growing unrest in Wales, symbolised by the threatened martyrdom of GWVXFOR EVANS.

When Neil Klugman , a young librarian, meets Brenda Patimkin , a student at Radcliffe, they soon become lovers. Both are Jewish, but while Brenda's socially-conscious family live an affluent life in an elegant suburb, Neil is from the less wealthy side of town. Philip Roth 's satire on the social pressures and snobberies of middle-class America has been cleverly translated to the screen in this sharply observant movie.
Screenplay by ARNOLD SCHULMAN based on the novella by PHILIP ROTH Produced by STANLEY R. JAFFE Directed by LARRY PEERCE Films: page 18
