5: The Escape of HMS Amethyst
On 18 April 1949, His Majesty's Frigate Amethyst set sail from Shanghai up the Yangtze River to relieve the British Embassy in Nangking. China was in the throes of the civil war between Chiang Kai-shek's Nationalists and Mao Tse-tung 's Communist forces on the north bank of the river. Seven of Amethyst's officers and ratings recall the attack and HMS Amethyst's subsequent 100 days' imprisonment on the river: a captivity that was only brought to an end by a dramatic dash for freedom.
Tho Escape of HMS Amethyst was a thrilling and touching account of how the frigate, with more than half her men killed, endured 100 days' captivity in the throat of the Yangtze River, then made an exhilarating dash lor it.

Ducking the Rocks - A Social Worker's Life
' I've visited places where mothers have actually told their children that I've come to take them away. 'The door of the council house opened, and I was confronted by a horse.'
Lots of people think they could do social work, even more think that they know what social workers do -well you've seen Juliet Bravo handed confidential files from her social worker husband and even Coronation Street's Ken Barlow was offered the job of a Senior Officer. Open Space followed a group of social workers in South Wales during three days in June.

One is Sonamukhi, about 100 miles from Calcutta, where the panchayat (the village council) has been very active in promoting these changes for the benefit of the rural poor. What have they been able to do for landless labourers like Rahman Mandal, share-croppers like Akbar All Mulllck, and harijans like Somba Bauri and Gangabella?
