Pay As You Learn
Everybody does, of course, one way or another. The bill for education makes up almost half the local rates bill and a good proportion of our income tax. But others, the parents of half-a-million children, also pay up to f 1,000 a head each year to have their children educated privately. The Money Programme looks at the shape of the private education business, explains how parents - and some private schools - pay less by tax-avoidance devices, and asks, do they get better value for their money?
DAVID TAYLOR goes to Lancing College, and other private schools, to see how they manage their affairs. _ Presented by BRIAN WIDLAKE with PAUL GRIFFITHS and ROBERT MCKENZIE

Noah Beery Robert McKim
In 19th-century Spanish California, the many wrongs of the despotic Governor are righted by the mysterious masked avenger Zorro who leaves his famous mark on all his defeated opponents.
In his first costume picture, Douglas Fairbanks established the movie character in which he was to become a legend-that of the gay daredevil adventurer whose flamboyant swashbuckling charmed a generation.
Adapted by DOUGLAS FAIRBANKS from the novel The Curse of Capistrano by JOHNSTON MCCULLEY Director FRED NIBLO

Short of money, short of newsprint, short of readers; yet Fleet Street still prints, like Caxton, with ink on paper. Can technology change that? Ian Breach reports.
