Live and Learn
There is much debate these days about teaching methods in school and many questions asked about which of them is most likely to be successful. But as PETER NEWELL of the Advisory Centre for Education, and writer and teacher mog BALL ask: Is it perhaps the nature of school itself that may inhibit learning?

A series of ten programmes in Which PROFESSOR BERNARD WILLIAMS asks: Can philosophy resolve some contemporary moral dilemmas? 5: Loyalty: A Dubious Virtue?
Feelings of loyalty - my country, my family right or wrong - are deep and genuine emotions which to some extent we all have. But being loyal to someone means putting them before someone else, preferring them. and as such offends against the principle that people should be treated as equals.

Deer at Any Price
Narrated by ANTHONY VALENTINE
New Zealand's gold rush is on, the merchandise - deer; the product - antler velvet, sold as a medicine and aphrodisiac in the Far East.
Today, one red deer hind is worth a hundred sheep. But only five years ago deer were considered a major pest. Brought to the islands in 1851 from England, they flourished, decimating the forests, eating the food of rare, exotic birds, eroding the landscape. Now a national asset, deer are the centre of a lucrative farming industry. To supply the stock, wild deer are being taken from remote mountains by helicopter teams. Their capture demands superlative flying skills and daring manoeuvres. But velvet farming is controversial, its markets unpredictable. If the industry slumps, will the wild deer again become New Zealand's number one enemy?

Continues the season of recent, highly-acclaimed films, starring Susannah Fowle, John Waters
Sent by her hard-working mother to attend Australia's most exclusive girls' school in turn-of-the-century Melbourne, Laura finds that it is not just her homemade clothes and country manners which set her apart from her snobbish, well-off schoolmates. For she is gifted with a strength and a brilliant musical talent which gradually allows her to transcend her unhappy situation, helped by the love of the school's beauty, Evelyn.
This moving portrait of girlhood emerges as an optimistic and triumphant affirmation of the human spirit in one of the most original and visually beautiful of all Australian films.
"Susannah Fowle's debut as Laura is spectacularly successful, by turns funny, sensitive, brattish, devious, utterly flawless." (EVENING STANDARD) (First showing on British television) Films: page 23
