Illegitimate babies present problems. Bringing one up in an atmosphere of disapproval can be harder than the alternative. To some, the decision is easy; a matter of practical common sense. To others it's life and death.

A personal view by Kenneth Clark
U: THE WORSHIP OF NATURE
' For almost a thousand years the chief creative force in western civilisation was Christianity. Then, in about the year 1730, it suddenly declined-in intellectual society practically disappeared. Of course it left a vacuum. People couldn'get on without a belief in something outside themselves, and during the next hundred years they concocted a new belief which, however irrational it may seem to us, has added a good deal to our civilisation-a belief in the divinity of nature.'
Sir Kenneth Clark 's examination of this new force takes him to Tintern Abbey and the Lake District of Wordsworth, to the Swiss Alps and the ideas of Rousseau-and to the landscapes of Turner and Constable.
Poems of William Collins , Samuel Taylor Coleridge and William Wordsworth spoken by C. Day Lewis . Directed by PETER MONTAGNON and ANN TURNER
Produced by MICHAEL GILL and PETER MONTAGNON

A series of personal choices of prose and poetry with Judi Dench
Given before an invited audience at the Lamda Theatre, London.
Producer, JOHN FURNESS
Alan Bennett appears by permission of Stoll Productions Ltd.
Alan Bennett might have been an Oxford don but for a quirk of fate which catapulted him into the world of ' showbiz.' This is reflected in his choice of poetry and prose which he reads with Judi Dench. Not that there's much high academic seriousness-hilarity keeps breaking through.
David Holmes looks back over the past week in Parliament and introduces reports and big debates in both Houses, questions to Ministers, significant moves behind the scenes, and the effect of M.P.s' work inside and outside Westminster
