8: Does the Local Council care?
Everyone needs some looking after as they grow old. But are our health and local Government services fulfilling their objectives to the elderly and, if not, why?
This programme was recorded before the freeze on local government spending that was announced recently. But the responsibility for providing sheltered housing and home helps for the elderly still rests with your local council.

A series of five programmes 3: Who runs the schools?
Every one of Britain's 33,000 schools has a managing body of some kind, composed mainly of lay people. Most parents don't know who sits on the managing or governing body of their children's schools - and the role of this body isn't clearly defined. Demands for more power now come from several quarters - parents, teachers, politicians, and pupils. Should they all have a say? Presenter SUE LAWLEY

Public Television in America
Would you pay L2,000 for an ' Upstairs Downstairs '-style dinner served by a butler and maid? Recently a lady in New York did just that, to support the cause of better television. The dinner was one of 7,000 items offered on a Public Broadcasting Television station's auction to raise money. There are 260 of these television stations in America providing a cultural and educational alternative to the hard-selling commercial networks. They are financed by the Government, local organisations and the public themselves.
FRANK GiLLARD introduces this unique service and some of its programmes.
