Kalakshetra - Devotion to Dance Reporter
Kalakshetra is India's finest centre for the performing arts. Its campus houses a thousand students, aged from 4 to 24, in two schools and a Fine Arts Academy, on the shores of the Indian Ocean south of Madras.
Founded nearly 50 years ago, Kalakshetra now attracts students to its Fine Arts Academy from all over the world. One of its most talented students this year is an Indian girl from Barnet in north London. Valli Subbiah, aged 22, has just completed six years' training in the classical Indian dance Bharata Natyam. Dr and Mrs Subbiah came all the way from London specially for their daughter's graduation ceremony - a two-hour solo performance.
Kalakshetra was founded in 1936 by Rukmini Devi , then a famous dancer, now in her 80th year. She still plays an active part in the running of the Fine Arts Academy and, each December, produces a festival of epic dance dramas in the Kalakshetra Theatre.

B J Hunnicutt:
A television history of Britain at work in the 20th century: The Shipbuilders Once Britain made 80 per cent of the world's ships. Now it is only two per cent. The first of this 11-part series has rare archive film, including a 1906 launch at Barrow. The men who worked on the ships describe life in the yards. 'Shipbuilding was mass unemployment in the 30s. Poor working conditions. It was a hard industry. No pensions. You could be laid off at an hour's notice'. (SHIPWRIGHT) The men feared new methods and tools would take away their work. What managers feared was the foreign competition which threatened for so long, and overtook them in the late 50s.
Together their stories help explain how a once great industry lost its lead, and why distrust still exists today. Narrator John Woodvine
