In many parts of Africa babies still die young. They have no proper funeral-just burial. Why do so many die? This summer Horizon went to Nigeria, and the remote islands of Lake Chad; there the team lived with the missionaries and doctors who are bringing modern medicine to the villages and leprosy settlements.
A poor diet, lack of sanitation, and most of all ignorance-these are near impossible conditions for successful treatment. African Medicine looks at the methods being used to cure and educate-and at the dedicated people who are taking medicine to Africa.

GREEN POWER IN THE GHETTO
Introduced by Brian Widlake , Graham Turner with William Davis. John Tusa
Associate producer, Udi Eichler Produced by MICHAEL BUNCE
In pre-election America racial violence is a frightening reality. For the last three or four years the concept of Black Power has gathered momentum and found political expression through such organised militant groups as the Black Panthers.
Complementing, and to a certain extent replacing, the concept of Black Power is the new force of Green Power-the realisation that the gift of money-making is not the white man's prerogative; that entrepreneurship can also be acquired by a black man. Gradually the ghettos, like New York's Harlem, are establishing black banks, black businesses, and black business consultants. If you can' beat them, join them-and win. For a growing number of black Americans Green Power-the power of the dollar-is the new way to equality.

Canadian-born Oscar Peterson has become the most prolific, brilliant, and highly professional jazz pianist of his era. For a long while he was associated in the minds of British jazz fans with Ella Fitzgerald , as he was her accompanist for several years, but then he emerged as an outstanding musical attraction in his own right.
