Small Boat Sailors are Alive and Well!
Each Olympic year brings a resurgence of interest in small boat sailing, and this year was no different. Since the boom in dinghy sailing in the 1960s, the gathering pace of costly technological development and the British recession have brought about a slow general decline, but among aficionados of the sport there's no lack of keenness or talent.

Malcolm Arnold decided on a musical career after hearing Louis Armstrong , and became principal trumpet with the London Philharmonic Orchestra. But if cinema buffs think of him as the composer of music for a string of successful films, it's his other work, including eight symphonies, which has assured him his place among leading English composers.

Denise [text removed] is 20. She has spent 18 years in care. Three years ago she broke into Hampshire Social Services and stole the file they had kept on her since early childhood.

... of documentary. A series of films portraying issues, institutions and individuals. Rent Boys
The young male prostitute is no longer confined to an area around Piccadilly Circus. He is to be found today throughout Britain in all the large centres of population. No one can estimate how many of them there are, for they run the gauntlet of the police and operate under a cloak of anonymity. But few doubt that unemployment and poor home conditions have prompted many boys to go on to the streets to sell themselves. In this documentary film, which includes sequences shot secretly in the known pickup haunts of Manchester and Birmingham, rent boys talk frankly about their lives, their motives, the effect on them of contact with the 'gay' urban underground, and the physical and moral dangers that accompany their quest for 'easy money'.
