The Long Valley
- a study of bereavement
At some time we all have to face bereavement. We normally approach it with fear. We tend to suppress our own tears and to be embarrassed if other people want us to share their grief. Surprisingly however, the more you know about bereavement the easier it is to see a hopeful end to this 'long valley'. Six people who have each lost somebody very close describe their own progress through the stages of grief.

A contemporary view of the world in which we live set to a new performance M Handel's great oratorio The Messiah conducted by Colin Davis

Smith Square, London
More than 200 years after its premiere (in Dublin in April 1742) Handel's Messiah is still the most often performed of all oratorios. But while the music is much loved the meaning of the words is often lost. This modern film version re-interprets the text relating it visually to today's world. The message is startling, sometimes disturbing. It also shows that, as in Handel's time, there is still much to give thanks for.

We were a people wasting ourselves
In fruitless battles for our masters
In lands to which we had no claim With men for whom we felt no hatred
R. S. Thomas 's poem echoes a situation the South Wales Borderers found themselves in 100 years ago to this month. The ' 'lands', of course, were those of the proud Zulu people who, that January in 1879, taught Imperial Britain a lesson or two.
