A World Apart....
The twins Erwin and Verner were born with an immunity deficiency which meant they were doomed to die from the least infection. So for the first two and a half years of their life they were isolated in a germfree world, enveloped in a huge plastic tent. Michael's world is one of silence. He's 24 and deaf but determined to live a normal life. Reports from West and East European TV look at human disability and how lives are adapted to it. Introduced by DEREK HART

Science Is Dead: Long Live Science
Sun worship at dawn on the sea-shore; mystical rites round an open fire at night. Windmills made from spare bicycle wheels. Food grown with the help of natural fertilisers. These are some of the activities of a new, politically conscious breed of American scientists.
Defoliation, people-sniffers, and napalm in Vietnam have given establishment science a dirty name. Environmental problems have added to the disenchantment. Suddenly, some scientists are no longer willing to see their work exploited for selfish and military ends.
They aim, both inside and outside the lab, to find an alternative science whose new purpose is really the old purpose - the genuine welfare of people.
