New Hostess in Town
Victoria is kidnapped and taken to a primitive border town where all the inhabitants are ruthless, vicious outlaws.
This week's programme in the series on Man and Science today.
One in fourteen men and one in nine women will spend some part of their life in a psychiatric hospital - and the numbers are rising ...
Ten years ago the keynote of the Mental Health Act was a change in emphasis from hospital care to community care, with the eventual closing of the hospitals. Yet by 1974, 15 years after the Act was passed, only seven local authorities out of 179 will have reached even the bare minimum of community care expected by the Act.
This could point to shortcomings in community care as a treatment, to a continuing need to put away the disturbed fraction of society, or it could point to serious shortcomings in the whole organisation of psychiatric care today.

The first of six programmes in which Robert Erskine retraces the paths of ancient civilisations and seeks to recapture the life ana events of those times.
All places where great events occurred have a powerful atmosphere : but none so pungent as Israel's Rock of Masada. Originally fortified by Herod, it was to this impregnable position that the remnants of the Jewish revolt of AD 70 withdrew, to oppose the Roman Army to the death.
This programme reveals the traces of the Tenth Legion's assault on the fortress-and of the Zealots' last resistance - still indelible on the landscape after 1,900 years.
Produced by GEOFFREY BAINES
