'I can remember this place, I just sat there and kept thinking why I wasn't living with my mum..." JOhn, 11 years old, looks back to when he was 7. He had just been taken away from home and put into care. There are 118,000 children like John in Britain today. How do they feel when they suddenly lose their parents? How do they adapt to a new home, cope with a new set of adults? John has been through it all. Now happily settled in a children's home, he talks about his life in care, and his feelings towards his parents, adoption and fostering, with his 9-to-11-year-old friends.
In the first of three films which look at the courage and resilience of children in the face of adversity, only the children are heard.

Digging for Rescue
The Chronicle Award for Archaeology 1979
The study of the pill-box defences of England, built in the early 1940s for ' Dad's Army ', is one of six projects chosen as finalists in this year's Chronicle Archaeology Awards. Other projects include the excavation of a Romano-British cemetery near Dunstable with its detailed analysis of skeletons and diseases; the clearing of the complex of caves that run under the streets of Nottingham; the unearthing of a Roman settlement at Kingscote in Gloucestershire; a study of the architectural history of farmhouses just north of Bristol; and a prehistoric settlement in the Test Valley in Hampshire.
During the summer, all the finalists were visited by a Chronicle film team and a panel of ' Rescue ' judges. Magnus Magnusson announces the judges' verdict and presents the prizes at a special ceremony in the British Museum. Film editor MICHAEL GOLDSMITH

Investigates, Discovers, Questions This week: One of the Family
In the last 100 years, some 2,000 of our stately homes have disappeared, together with the armies of servants that once maintained them. But the world of Upstairs, Downstairs still lingers on in some of our remaining great houses where it can take a silver steward 18 months to clean all the 1,000 silver pieces, and a gamekeeper works all year to provide just a few days' shooting.
In One of the Family, Jeanne la Chard looks at life behind the green baize door and talks to the men and women who enjoy their jobs and who are proud to be called servants, as well as some of the Dukes and Duchesses who employ them.
