At last, the surviving members of 480 Platoon move on to parachuting. Only 17 of the original 41 are left. RAF instructors take over from the Army and introduce a world of new skills and drills, exits, drift, twists, landings, coping with them must become second nature. The recruits experience the 'fan', the 'tower', the 'knacker-cracker '. Soon they are ready for their first jump from a balloon cage 800 feet above RAF Hullavington. 'Just like stepping off a pavement,' says an instructor.
But that's not how 480 Platoon see it. One of them refuses...
As the parachuting continues news comes from the Falklands. 2 and 3 Para are taking casualties. 480 Platoon, their training still incomplete, are put on 24-hour standby as reinforcements...

Sir Peter Parker , Chairman of the British Railways Board, gives the 11th in this series of annual lectures before an invited audience at the Royal Society of Arts in London.
Missing Our Connections
Tonight SIR PETER PARKER examines the relationship between
Government, Industry and Democracy and finds that we are ' missing our connections'.
He analyses Britain's industrial decline and describes the damage the politics of our democracy can cause to the sensible development of industrial policy.
He sees dangers to democracy in industrial decline, the prospect of a divided people and the creation of two nations.
He remains an optimist and produces his own ideas of how Britain could once again achieve industrial health.
Introduced by George Howard , Chairman of the BBC

Five programmes on Britain's elderly population.
2: An Ageing Nation
The over-60s in Britain are now nearly a fifth of the whole population. In the second of five personal views, Eric Midwinter , Director of the Centre for Policy on Ageing, considers how and why this change in the structure of the population has taken place. He argues that the idea of a fixed retirement age has ' institutionalised ' old age. People are varied, but the rules governing retirement are rigid.'
