Master Martin Fletcher:
With the notable exception of Compo, Nora Batty is not used to anyone looking at her. So when her husband Wally takes an unnatural interest in those parts of her body she stands on, she is understandably unnerved. It is, of course, all part of Compo, Clegg and Foggy's attempts to settle a question of size once and for always.

Hearts and Minds
The first of two films about South-East Asia, ten years after the Vietnam War. Thailand
Since the end of the Vietnam War ended, the Buddhist kingdom of Thailand has become a front-line state, facing a unified Communist
Indo-China across the Mekong River.
The legacies of the American presence are still clearly visible in Thailand -in its highly developed consumer society, powerful military elite and over one million prostitutes. In coping with the shock of the last decades, the Sangha- Buddhist clergy-play a crucial role. But, like the Christian churches of the West, the monks themselves are divided.
This Everyman film reveals a society where the beliefs of Buddhism have become weapons in the struggle for the hearts and minds of its people.
