Blindness is not the handicap we usually imagine it to be.
At a school in Warwickshire, blind children play football.

The last of four programmes The Heart of England
' A regional dish is a whole countryside.'
Beef, from white-faced Hereford cattle, and draught beer from Worcestershire hops, should strike right to the heart of every true Englishman. But do they? Are they the same as they used to be? Derek Cooper samples some classic foods in the most English of counties - Hereford and Worcester - and on the way tries Evesham asparagus, Worcester sauce and the strange, boneless and increasingly rare river lampern.

The second of three Omnibus films about the transatlantic take-over of our popular song and dance. From Jazz to Swing
'Spell it Jass, Jas, Jaz or Jazz - nothing can spoil a Jass band.'

EUBIE BLAKE , IRVING CAESAR,
Those filmed in England: TOLCHARD
EVANS, VICTOR SILVESTER.
