Or How to Examine Your Inside from the Outside
The Royal Institution Annual Christmas Lectures to Young People by Heinz Wolff of the Medical Research Council 2: Pumps, Pipes and Flows
At one time the heart was thought to be the very seat of life and love; we now know that the heart is simply a pump, or to be more precise a double pump, keeping the vital blood in circulation. How this circulation is regulated is the subject of tonight's lecture and we shall measure how much blood the heart is actually pumping without spilling a single drop.

The Trobriand Experiment
In pubic leaf, warpaint and feathers, serried ranks of Trobriand islanders advance across a field with arms outstretched. They are about to play their extraordinary version of the Old English game of cricket-one where the players start by enacting the arrival of a visiting team by air. Sixty years ago, anthropologist
Bronislaw Malinowski predicted that the vigorous and distinctive culture of these ' savages' would die out quickly under Western influences. Instead, they borrowed and adapted our ideas. Then came famine, and this modified Garden of Eden faced its toughest test-the very survival of a society based on the giving and taking of food.
Horizon's camera observes the solution attempted by a young Trobriander who returns to his island with the greatest magic ever known to his people-a university education. If JOHN KASAIP -WALOVA succeeds, could his way offer a model for other peoples? Narrator PAUL VAUGHAN
