The Tithe War
' It's " dearly beloved brethren " on Sunday and confiscation of corn stacks on Monday,' warned a farmer's propaganda poster in the early 30s. It was a time when feelings ran high: hundreds of English farms withheld their tithes from the Church and the Law fought back.
In this programme, among those who tell of the battles and why they fought in the front line in East Anglia 40 years ago, ' being as obstructive as we could, within the law ' are:
LADY EVE BALFOUR

Newspapers call Soho the ' square mile of vice.' Few tourists fail to visit it. Football supporters 'up for t'Cup ' always seem to wind up there - in their cups.
But Soho is being tidied up, threatened with replanning. ' Miss Whiplash ' will have to find new premises - so will some of the restaurants, theatres, strip clubs, discotheques. But still there will be newspapers in 15 languages; cheroots from Burma; samovars from Samarkand. It seems impossible to consider Soho in any other terms than the centre of the British film industry; the home of the London Orchestral Association; the meeting place of artists, sculptors, stunt men, wrestlers - and the stamping ground of Lord Longford's stern-minded committee. Soho is a place of character - full of characters.
