Richard Wrigley has some forthright thoughts on America, and in particular on business and sex. At 38, with no financial background, he's creating in Manhattan a million-dollar brewery as well as a vast ice-rink in New
York's Central Park. He has no bank account and no credit rating but says thousands of dollars have gone through his mattress. Brendan Fearon , with a BA from Manchester University, is also working in Central
Park - driving a horse-drawn carriage - and experiencing some of the romance himself. When most of the muggers are in bed, Richard Lord , who lives with a pet eel, takes the
4.0 am subway to Wall Street - not to a bank but to the Fulton Fish Market to pursue his obsession.

Love is All You Need?
In the 1960s, thousands of white families adopted or fostered black children from local authority care. For many it was their way of showing their personal commitment to a multiracial society. In the 1980s, black activists say 'transracial' adoption should stop. The final indignity for the black community is to lose their children to white homes and white values. This week Heart of the Matter asks whether our assumptions about what constitutes a multiracial society can fit with the reality of race relations in Britain today.
