Trevor Philpott reports on The Merry Widows of Miami
In Miami they believe widowhood should be fun.
It is a fact of modem life that most women are going to outlive their men and in Florida there is a way of life devoted to the belief that widowhood is a time of opportunity. If there have to be widows -much better that they were rich than poor, better that they were warm than cold and much better that they were merry than miserable. Here are several hundred-thousand of the late-flowering women of Miami in full blossom.

6: Timmy and the Experts
Timothy Jones is a mongol. When the strain of looking after him began to affect his parents' marriage, Mr and Mrs Jones agreed that it would be best if he were sent away from Solihull into a private residential home in the country. The move was a success. But four years later, Solihull Social Services Department had vacancies for the mentally handicapped at its own modern day-care centre, and it was costing Solihull's ratepayers £5,000 a year to keep Timmy in the country. What was more logical than to bring the boy nearer home. and ease the borough's financial burden? It was not a form of logic that convinced the Joneses. They strenuously resisted all arguments. So the battle lines were drawn up, and this film is an account of how two determined lay-people took on a whole department of experts.
