Border Country is where everyone lives now says Raymond Williams in this series of highly personal films
Raymond Williams, novelist and lecturer, thinks university education should be fitted to the demands of real life. He believes that many of Britain's rebellious students are, like himself, inhabitants of what he calls 'the Border Country.'
In this film Williams contrasts life in his working-class birth-place, Pandy, on the Welsh-English border, with academic Cambridge, where he teaches English literature.
'The journey between them is more than a physical journey. It's a journey between different kinds of life, different values. I cross that border in my mind almost every day.'
'It seems to me important because the border country is everywhere. In so many places people are moving or being moved from old, settled ways into new, unprecedented ways which have to be felt, recognised, understood, responded to, altered.'

George Stubbs: a bit of a mystery
The strange story of George Stubbs - the great 18th-century animal painter, a genius in art and science, who had scarcely a word written about him in his lifetime. This film tries to piece together a jigsaw from the few scraps of written evidence, from facts and rumours, visiting some of the remote places connected with the artist and his work.
