The country's approved schools are under the spotlight of publicity and no one knows exactly what is going to happen to them. They are condemned as junior prisons, places where the not-so-innocent learn the tricks of the trade of the hardened criminal. They are defended as schools which achieve success with the failures of every other educational and social service; the end of the road that leads back to a normal way of life.
Under new legislation the schools will become part of a new system of community homes run by local authorities. But how will they change? Will the present regime alter significantly? Will the present staffs remain in control?
For the second of two programmes on this subject, Man Alive's outside broadcast unit goes inside Chafford Approved School at Ramsey, Essex, and with the boys, the staff, and those who've been through the system, tries to find out.

Mai Zetterling in Salt and Tobacco by Aldo Nicolas translated by Anthony Paul
Olympia returns from her hus. band's funeral to the room above her tobacconist's shop in a small Italian town. Is she crying? No, she is suffering from a fit of uncontrollable laughter. This is an amusing story of a man and two women, with an ironic ending.
Mai Zetterling is one of Europe's leading actresses. She has appeared in a wide variety of plays from Shakespeare to Anouilh, but is probably best known in Britain for her leading roles in Ibsen and Chekhov. During the last few years she has turned her attention more to films and has directed Loving Couples and Night Games.
