' He likes a little fun and games, who doesn't, he's just an ordinary family man.' That may be the male's eye-view of Garvey's antics on the shop-room floor but for Carol, who isn't prepared to sleep with him to earn promotion, fun and games means sexual hafrassement ... She takes oil, the factory, the union, and finally the Wall Street head office in her fight against Garvey and the attitude that a female employee's work does not stop when the office closes.

Dr Priestley and the Breath of Life 1 August 1774: Dr Joseph Priestley , radical politician, theologian and scientist, adjusted the focus of his burning glass and discovered an unknown gas. That gas is now called oxygen-the breath of life itself.
Priestley was excited and puzzled by his discovery. Why did it keep mice alive? What happened when it turned blood red? How did plants make it when sunlight shone on their leaves?
Starting with reconstructions of Priestley's original experiments, Professor Ian Fells shows how we are still trying to understand the links between oxygen and living things which this remarkable Unitarian minister first demonstrated 200 years ago. Is oxygen connected with diseases ranging from brain haemorrhages in premature babies to rheumatoid arthritis in adults? And could we improve on the way plants make oxygen by also using sunlight to split water - and make cheap fuel?
