A Schlatter/Friendly Droduction for NBC
by Rene Cutforth
"Taffy was a Welshman, Taffy was a thief..."
Taffy lived on a mountain farm and was so poor that he was forced to come raiding and plundering across the border in order to live at all. The Romans, Saxons, Normans and subsequent rulers of England had a huge respect for the devious Welsh. They spent a great deal of money invading and building castles to subdue the Welsh and keep them contained in this small land.
Rene Cutforth is unashamedly English, but he lived near Plynlimon on and off for seven years and is fascinated by the Welsh. On the eve of St David 's Day he looks in from the air to see what has become of them.

A personal view by Bernard Keeffe of the musical life of Japan
Filmed during one long hot summer month last year, this music documentary is a series of vivid impressions of how the Japanese have not only wholeheartedly adopted Western music but are now challenging the West in musical education and in the mass production of music itself. It contains an interview with the famous violin teacher Dr Shinichi Suzuki , who is seen at work with his young pupils - aged from one year seven months upwards.
Made in Japan also shows Japanese composers searching for a national style of expression after a hundred years' exposure to Western traditions. They are finding new ways of using Western orchestral techniques. as well as their own, ancient, traditional instruments.
