Moving Where the Jobs Are
' I don'think it is fair to expect families to move to a new area just for the sake of a job. If things get more desperate here we'll have to go - but I wouldn'be happy about it' - Gateshead housewife.
Thousands remain out of work in areas like the North East while London and the new towns suffer labour shortages. But what snags have to be considered in deciding whether to move away in search of work and prospects?

JEANNE LA CHARD , JOHN PITMAN JACK PIZZEY , DESMOND WILCOX HAROLD WILLIAMSON This week: Pot
Two people on your bus to work every day may be criminals. And your teenage son or daughter, perhaps just starting at college, may be breaking the law or sharing rooms with someone who does. The crime? The possession or use of cannabis - better known as pot. These statistics are not dramatic journalists' headlines either; they're revealed in a government report. Two million people, in this country, have smoked pot.
With so many people flouting the law -it is perhaps surprising how little is really understood about pot. Is it bad for one's health, and in what way? Is it addictive? Will it lead to other drug usage? And is the present legislation satisfactory?
With Desmond Wilcox in the Man Alive studio tonight are those anxious to discuss the prejudices and the facts about pot.
