JONATHAN DIMBLEBY talks to
Sir Archie Lush in the first of two programmes
ARCHIE LUSH was ' one of the few ' who did not descend to his appointed place, the-coal face at Tredegar Colliery; instead, he worked and won a place at the local grammar school. He should have become a steady, responsible white collar worker, but unemployment and a chance street-corner meeting with Aneurin Bevan turned him into a radical organiser.

JEANNE LA CHARD , DESMOND WILCOX HAROLD WILLIAMSON This week:
In the five years since the Beatles made their pilgrims' progress to the Ganges in search of the meaning of life, thousands of their fellow-countrymen, disillusioned by the orthodox Christian churches, have turned to the East seeking spiritual comfort. All over Britain people are meditating; there are long waiting lists for Yoga lessons; and sects whose inspiration comes from Eastern mysticism have mushroomed. JEANNE LA CHARD looks at three mystic sects in Britain: the Divine Light Mission, who worship a 14-year-old boy God; the Sufis, originally a secret Islamic society; and Krishna Consciousness, whose saffron-robed followers believe that by chanting the Hare Krishna mantra about 2,000 times a day they will achieve enlightenment.
