Presented by Angela Rippon from Flatford Mill, Suffolk
Immortalised by the landscape paintings of JOHN CONSTABLE , Flatford Mill, Willy Lott 's cottage and Dedham Vale have come to represent much of which we treasure about the English countryside. Today, Constable's family home is a Field Studies Centre-which runs courses to promote an active interest in Natural History. Would Constable himself have approved of what has happened to Flatford Mill-and could it serve a wider public?
Together with Bernard Price and Richard Mabey , Angela looks around the Mill and Constable Country, and discusses its special role with some of the staff, students and local people who are concerned for its future.

Suffer Little Children
At the end of the International Year of the Child, Moyra Bremner reports on the conditions under which over 50 million children, some only four years old, are put to work throughout the world in factories, coal mines and on the land.
Although an integral part of many Third World economies, harsh circumstances all too often give rise to direct and naked exploitation of the labour of children, with no protection from physical and mental injury.
With reports on conditions around the world, this special edition of Newsweek asks what can be done by the international agencies, by governments, and the conscience of the individual, to alleviate the suffering of these children.
