A Yesterday's Witness series of six programmes about British life in India in the 20s and 30s. 3: Soldiers Three
In the 1880s Kipling wrote: ' Single men in barricks don't grow into plaster saints.' And 50 years later, it seems, they still didn't. Life in the British Army in India in the 1930s is described in this programme by a fusilier, a drummer and a private. ' What a so-and-so country to come to, I thought. But there we are, we've just got to make the best of it.' They saw action on the Frontier, helped quell riots, went out in the midday sun ... But most of the time was spent as single men in barricks'-just standing by. And yet: Duty was a word that had a meaning for us. And we had a duty to the King Emperor: to keep the peace and to set an example.'

Narrated by GARY WATSON
From the day that Benji, peering through National Health specs that seemed welded to his nose, saw Dana on a swing in the park, his life was changed. He wanted to share all the marvels of the seaside with her ... but he didn't mention the dolphins.

Tonight Shac presents: Closed Door?
Is Britain's housing crisis well on the way to being solved, as some politicians claim? If so, why has homelessness reached record levels, and why is it so hard to find somewhere to live in Britain's big cities? These are some of the questions behind tonight's programme by Shac. Shac (The London Housing Aid Centre) advises and helps homeless and badly housed Londoners. The practical experience of this work has given Shac a unique insight into the housing crisis and what needs to be done if it is to be solved.
Made by the London Housing Aid Centre with the help of the Community Programme Unit.
