' Wherever you get a strike, you get bitterness creep in - and once you become enemies over a strike it's very difficult, when the strike is over, to resolve the position, because people will always remember the hardships they've had to suffer.'
So said the local union secretary in Clipstone, a Nottinghamshire mining village, the day the National Coal Strike began. By then The Money Programme's cameras had been in Clipstone for a month: they stayed for ten weeks more and recorded this unique portrait of both sides of an industrial community under pressure - men, managers, and their wives before, during, and after the strike.

with Percy Thrower from Great Dixter, Northiam, Sussex
This 'most English of English gardens' surrounding the 15th century manor house of Great Dixter, is one of the ' great' gardens of England. It is made up of a series of separate gardens, and in this first visit Percy Thrower includes the Sunken and Walled Gardens and deals with the seasonal treatment of hardy fuchsias.
Tom Stoppard gives his views in this series of highly personal films.
Tom Stoppard Doesn'Know
' Almost everybody I know has firm opinions about almost everything. It's better to have halitosis than to have no opinion. The characteristic position I find myself in is one of cautious agreement with two incompatible points of view.'

Casper the Enigma - or How To Influence People and Not Make Friends
Billy Casper , subject of this film, has a 15-year record of golfing consistency unrivalled even by Nicklaus and Trevino. Yet he remains uftloved by his public, a mystery to the Press. Casper-Mormon, do-gooder, golfer par excellence - has been regularly tipped to win the British Open, and has never done so. It will be the final irony if, comparatively unfancied, he does so next week.
