JAMES ASTOR talks to
Larry Rees Bootlegger
On 16 January 1920 America introduced prohibition. And for the next thirteen years liquor was bought and sold illegally in so-called restaurants and private clubs. Larry Rees , from Newport in Wales, was hoboing around America in the 20s and 30s and the job he did for longer than any other was that of bootlegging in New Orleans. A job that made him a lot of friends both inside and outside prison.

Newspapers call it the 'square mile of vice.' Few tourists fail to visit it. Football supporters ' up for t'Cup ' always seem to wind up there - in their cups.
But Soho is being tidied up, threatened with replannlng. ' Miss Whiplash' will have to find new premises - so will some of the restaurants, theatres, strip clubs, discotheques. But still there will be newspapers in 15 languages; cheroots from Burma; samovars from Samarkand. It seems impossible to consider Soho in any other terms than the centre of the British film industry; the London Orchestral Association; the meeting place of artists, sculptors, stunt men, wrestlers - and the stamping ground of Lord Longford's stern-minded committee. Soho is a place of character - full of characters,
FRANK NORMAN wrote a book about it.HAROLD WILLIAMSON , a Tynesider, has come to know and love it. CHARLIE SQUIRES has always been fascinated by it. Now they have been there together.

A River Reborn
For over, 100 years the River Avon from Evesham to Stratford has lain silted up and derelict. No boats could travel along one of Britain's most beautiful waterways.
David HUTCHINGS of the Upper Avon Navigation Trust is bringing it back to life. Every single day of the week he works with prisoners and volunteers to build new locks, weirs and bridges and dredge the river. Soon a new leisure waterway will be open.
