This week: Father Atone
When families break up it is usually Mother who looks after the children. And when the reason is separation or divorce it was usually, in the past, Mother who was given the custody. But nowadays there has been a change, and more Lnd more often fathers are given custody; fathers are being allowed to be mother too.
But can a father alone ever really succeed where a mother and a father together have failed? How do men cope?
James Astor and a Man Alive film team have looked at three fathers bringing up their children alone: one employed, one unemployed, one self-employed: all with different situations, but all facing fundamentally the same problems.

Johnny Morris visits some of the islands in the Pacific Ocean. 7 : Oahu (Hawaiian Islands)
' The national characteristic is still strong enough and charming enough to inject a little delight into the strict functional world that is imposing itself on everyone here.'
Known as ' The Big Island,' Oahu is the main holiday island with the capital, Honolulu, and the legendary Waikiki Beach.
Johnny sees girls dancing Hula, dolphins towing a canoe, and macaws riding a bicycle.

6: The March
By 4 pm on 12 July, 1971, some 30,000 people had marched five miles through the streets of Belfast, with bands playing and banners flying, to commemorate an event that took place 281 years ago. The previous night, those who were not singing or dancing would have been woken from their sleep by a series of explosions.
To be in Belfast during the Orange March on 12 July is always an experience. This year, there were many who wondered what kind of experience.
