The third of four debates set up under the wing of the access programme Something Else. Political Matters
The theme of tonight's informal debate has been chosen by a group of young people from Rochdale who invite argument and discussion from a wide range of people of their own age. They are talking about whether young people have enough say in the things that affect their lives.

(' War and Peace ': tomorrow at 6.10)
The last of eight films following the fortunes of the young men who aim to fly the fast jets of the Royal Air Force.
There's just one student left. He's an officer and he can fly - but can he make a kill? The sole survivor learns to drop bombs and fire guns in the fight to live for another day.
For the first time he faces the realisation that he will be the one to carry a nuclear warhead; it will be for him to drop it on the right place. He begins to appreciate the implications of his chosen profession.
A Grapevine report
On 2 September police and the DHSS mounted their biggest ever operation against social security fraud. In a film shot in the weeks following that event, those involved - claimants, probation officers, solicitors and journalists-question the way in which the operation and the courts were handled. Those involved with the homeless and unemployed also question whether large-scale attacks on petty fraud confront the real issues. Subsequently, the DHSS office in Oxford has been on strike over staffing cuts, and the system itself is in crisis.
Professionals and claimants meet in the studio to discuss the long-term implications of The Oxfraud Incident.

The dilemma facing Mr Grimshaw is that whichever way he turns blood will be spilled. As a senior figure in Durham County's education office, he has to cull one or more of his local schools, for the very logical reason that the population is declining and ratepayers' money must be saved.
But for parents, teachers, villagers and children it is an emotional matter. As the harbinger of bad news during a ritual round of public meetings, Mr Grimshaw becomes the focus of local hatred. He is howled down, traduced and lampooned in song. But in the quiet of County Hall, where the decisions are made, he goes about his duty sure-footed and unmoved.
