To some, the new Youth Training Scheme will be the saving of the British economy; to others it will be yet another doomed attempt to keep unemployed school-leavers off the streets and out of the statistics.
As YTS begins its first year of full-scale operation, John Clare , the BBC's Education and Community Affairs Correspondent, looks at what some of this year's school-leavers are being offered, and chairs a discussion with employers, teachers, trade unionists, the Careers Service and the MSC on the hopes and doubts that accompany this latest initiative in youth training.

Unlocking the Secrets of Vega Vega has been known to astronomers for centuries. At least, astronomers thought they knew most things about this brilliant blue star. But Vega has been keeping a secret. It is surrounded by a planetary system in the early stages of development. This discovery is the latest in a series of unexpected finds by IRAS, the infra-red astronomical satellite launched in January 1983.
Patrick Moore talks to astronomers Dr Aumann and Dr Gillette and discusses the importance of this major contribution to our knowledge of the universe.
