Ten programmes on career opportunities for young adults
with Paddy Feeny and Percy Walton, Secretary, Institute of Youth Employment Officers
There are always opportunities in the Health and Welfare Services for those people who want some degree of personal involvement with their work. Such people bring to the job a concern for others, and a warmth of personality which makes them valuable contributors in a crisis situation where they are asked to give help in resolving problems that others cannot solve on their own.
The World Tonight
Reporting: John Timpson and Peter Woods
with Martin Bell, Michael Blakey, Michael Sullivan, Tom Mangold, Brian Saxton, David Tindall, Richard Whitmore and the correspondents, at home and abroad, of BBC News
followed by The Weather
The High Chaparral ...is the bid of a family seeking roots in the newly won West
...is the threat to the new settlers from Mexicans and Indians
...and spells adventure in the Arizona territory of 1870
A camel on the strength of the U.S. Cavalry is strange enough, but when the camel is in the charge of a highly unconventional Irishman the results are unpredictable, to say the least. Everyone at The High Chaparral becomes involved with this unusual pair, but none more than Buck.
Should my child...
Suck his thumb?
Bang his head against the cot?
Bite his nails?

The story of a secret world beneath the famous sights of London
For six years Londoners have caught glimpses of a new tube railway being built. This film reveals the inside story: the strange isolation of miners burrowing under a big city, how the steel umbrella went up over Oxford Circus during one August Bank Holiday weekend, what they did to a famous department store, and why they froze the ground at Tottenham in the hottest weeks of 1966. A record of perhaps the most complex tunnel engineering ever carried out under London.
The film ends with an inside look at the new automatic trains which give the driver hardly anything to do, automatic fare collection, two-way mirrors, and closed-circuit TV cameras monitoring the crowds.
