Spies, crashed airmen and fugitives from the Gestapo often relied on forged papers during the war on the French Riviera. If you were British, like the people in this documentary film, papers were essential to avoid arrest. You were not supposed to be there after 1940.
From Nice and Monaco to Clermont Ferrand, this film traces the stories of five Britons who by fate, choice or duty, spent the war years in southern France evading the authorities. Despite the Riviera's deceptive luxuriousness, Gerald Hakim ended up in solitary confinement; Dorothy Chamaide's husband was arrested by the anti-Semitic authorities; Taffy Higginson was imprisoned above

Shots in the Dark
Millions of women throughout the Third World are being injected with a drug that has been banned in the USA because of fears that it could cause cancer. The drug is Depo Provera, an injectable contraceptive which prevents pregnancy for up to six months. Depo Provera is supported by major family planning organisations but vehemently opposed by ' ban the jab' activists who say that until it's proved safe its use in the developing world is totally immaral. This film sets out to investigate this alleged scandal among the crowds of women who come for the injection in North East Thailand and up in the remote hill tribes of the Golden Triangle, where the men of the village are being taught how to inject their womenfolk. How do the doctors and families there balance the risks and benefits of a drug whose safety has been questioned-and is there indeed one set of rules for the West and another for the Third World?
