A Forty Minutes documentary It lasted for only a few years in the 50s. But things were never the same again. For the first time young people discovered that pop was not limited to the exclusive confines of the professional. They might not be able to read a note of music, but if they learned three chords on a guitar, and bought a kazoo, a washboard, some washing line, a broom handle and a tea-chest, they could 'skiffle'. The story of skiffle is told by: Chris Barber , Beryl Bryden Nancy Whiskey ,
Chas McDevitt , Richard Stilgoe Bernard Falk , Pete Murray Stan Crowther , mp, and the artist who above all embodied skiffle, the man with the whipchord larynx, the engine driver of 'The Rock Island

George Orwell wrote his bleak vision of the future in 1948. This month sees the release of a new film version in which John Hurt plays Winston Smith, the thinker of forbidden thoughts, and Richard Burton his tormentor.
Christopher Frayling discovers how London's derelict urban wasteland, an Orwellian torture chamber and specially designed props (down to the last ration book and gin bottle), were used to achieve 'a total design' for a state which has total control.

Our sense of humour baffles them, our politics bother them, our preoccupation with tradition bemuses them.
Apparently, we don't wash, and we are morose and miserable even on holiday. On the other hand, we are polite and kind to animals, and we would be great in a crisis - if we knew one when we saw one.
Derek Jameson , in the last of the present series, looks into the more bizarre aspects of foreign television coverage of Britain.

The Fighter by ALAN SHINWELL
On his 100th birthday today, Lord Manny ShinweU celebrates one of the longest careers in British politics. Yet it was almost the shortest. In 1913, when he was a rumbustious trade union organiser on Clydeside, an attempt was made to shoot him. The bullet killed a colleague standing alongside. Manny survived to lead the rioters on Bloody Friday in Glasgow's George Square. He nominated Ramsay MacDonald and later Harold Wilson for leadership of the Labour
Party. He nationalised the mines and led the backbench opposition to Britain joining the Common Market.
In a pugnacious career spanning the last hundred years, Manny has echoed the words he threw down challengingly to a Labour Party conference:
'I say what I like, I do what I like - and there's nobody going to stop me'.

Rape often happens in familiar, secure surroundings with someone who is known and trusted by the victim. The motivation is the same; not overwhelming sex and passion as is often believed, but rather a sense of domination, power and aggression.
'I looked at him and the only thing I can remember was, he doesn't see me, I am not real - I opened my mouth to scream and nothing came out. It was like being under water, like I was drowning.'
'He's served his sentence but I'm still serving mine. I'm still frightened of sleeping at night. Sometimes I'll even sleep with the light on.' "The fact that you've been used as a sexual object by another man decreases your masculinity considerably. It puts you on the level of a vessel. Of a done to rather than a doer.'
With the aid of dramatised reconstructions, rape victims tell in their own words the reality of their experiences and how their lives were affected afterwards.
