JOHN PITMAN talks to Claude Zola
Claude Zola first played ' cat' in Dick Whittington at the age of 8 and went on to master the donkey in Ali Bobo, the front end of the cow in Jack and the Beanstalk and Mother Goose. Goose, he says, is the hardest: It was ' a heck of a job to get the eggs out.'

No Room at the Doss-house
Over 8,000 men sleep rough in London on park benches, in derelict houses and railway sidings. No one knows the total for the whole country; how many will spend Christmas alone this year, out of doors?
These men weren'born homeless. Many of them had good jobs, a home and a family and they thought they were secure. Ending up jobless, without a roof and alone, is a gradual process, but those who've dropped to the bottom rung on the ladder say you get there almost before you know it-once things really start to go wrong.
HAROLD WILLIAMSON talks to men who admit they brought it all on themselves; some who are trying to fight their way back and others who've accepted life on the doss-house circuit at a time when hostels for homeless men are fast disappearing in property development schemes.

As Long as They Don'Bite Policemen in the Bones
' We see our thing as being more important than the UN Conference - that's just a movie ... it's all been planned out ... like there's nothing left to happen.'
An eye-witness account of the external events which occured in Stockholm last June when, in the wake of the United Nations Conference on Human Environment, thousands of people from all over the world came to live and camp in and around the city. They became known as the Alternative and 2,000 armed police were called in to handle the situation. Some of the Alternative had worked for years to prepare their brief: others just came. And they left behind no doubts that Environment could any longer simply mean Pollution. The UN Declaration was frustrated and almost destroyed by national economic and political interest. The Alternative proposed a different approach.
