First shown early in 1972, this series shows four situations in which people try to communicate. 3: School
Unless there's an outbreak of violence, or scandal, or a wild experiment being tried, most schools are taken for granted. We all know what school is like. But for teachers, and for the pupils, it's a daily drama, no less difficult for being familiar. How can the teachers reach the 30 restless faces in front of them? How can the kids get through the day?
MAGGIE, the head of the English department at a large friendly comprehensive, tries different ways to approach her pupils. In the film she works with one fourth-year class - a lively, noisy bunch who secretly admit to wanting to learn.
The film-makers brought educational psychologist Dr Richard Suchman to talk to both teachers and pupils to see how differently they see the same class. The results surprised everyone.

Six programmes on the civilisations of Turkey
Written and introduced by John Julius Norwich
6: The Ottoman Empire
The Harem of the Turkish sultans in Topkapi Palace has for centuries been a byword for splendour and decadence. From these dazzling rooms, recently restored and now shown on television for the first time, the Ottoman Empire was governed and misruled. Their capital, Constantinople, was transformed by buildings such as the Blue Mosque into the Istanbul of today.
In the final programme of the series LORD NORWICH brings his survey of Turkish history right up to the present time.
