This week: Aircraft Noise
Whether we like it or not, the volume of jet aircraft traffic screeching over our heads will go on for many years to come.
It is undeniable that aircraft are great money-spinners and dollarearners-London Airport handles more international traffic than any airport in the world - but for those living near airports jet aircraft noise has reached almost unbearable proportions.
But is the noise absolutely necessary? How serious a hazard to our health is it? Do the airlines respect the noise limits imposed? Can jet engines be gagged without ruining performance? Is sufficient being done to control what has become known as this obscene intrusion into our private lives '?

A profile of Hugh MacDiarmid
He is a minority party of one really - but what a one!
Scotland's most famous living poet, Dr C. M. Grieve (Hugh MacDiarmid) celebrates his 80th birthday this week.
In this film he talks of his uncompromising life and the ideas and circumstances that have shaped its progress. Excerpts from his poetry help to trace a pattern that has taken him from the debatable lands of the Scottish Borders, through two world wars and many peacetime years of controversy and hardship, to his present home in a farm worker's cottage. In the process, he has achieved a worldwide reputation which cuts across both national and ideological frontiers. Narrator PAUL KERMACK Reader TOM FLEMING
