More than 90 per cent of Japanese children stay at school until they're 18 and, for many, success at school has been the key to success in later life. The high standard of education has also been one of the main reasons for Japan's spectacular economic success. But there's been growing concern recently over the pressures generated by the country's highly competitive educational system. This film is a portrait of the schools in a typical suburb of the large industrial city of Osaka.

9: Squire and Parson
In the 17th and 18th centuries links between the manor and the church were strong. At Cottesbrooke in Northamptonshire, All Saints Church was fitted out with boxpews, three-decker pulpit and a private family pew for the squire. The interior here neatly delineates the social hierarchy of the village and provides a perfect picture of a country Sunday. The squire's authority was virtually absolute, and, in this, the age of the amateur architect, his influence on the design of the parish church was growing too. At Little Stanmore in Middlesex, the Duke of Chandos demolished all but the tower of the church of St Lawrence and rebuilt it in the latest classical style. He commissioned the best artists he could afford to create a treasure house of a church that reflects not the corporate pride of the parish, but the wealth and status of one man.
