Of Birds and Boys
When Fabian Smith read
Barry Hines 's novel Kes at the age of 8, he was so distressed by the ending that he promptly rewrote it. Now aged 13, Fabian's passion for birds of prey has led to his back garden in Essex being turned into a mini aviary, where he and his younger brother Oliver train kestrels, buzzards and barn owls. At the request of Maya Wisbey , the boys' neighbour, Open Space spent a snow-bound week with them, recording their patient dedication to the birds.

How Green is My Valley?
On 9 June 1983 Brass Tacks started filming
Doris Williams , a miner's widow in the Rhondda Valley. She and her family were going out to vote against a second term for Mrs Thatcher.
'Maggie's got no time for the working people. She'd like to build a big wall and pen us in.' Since then Doris's son has spent 12 months on strike from the last working pit in the valley. Her daughter-in-law has become a leading activist in the local miners' wives' group, and her grandson has given up any hope of a mining future for himself.
What will be left for the Rhondda after this bitter dispute? Is there any hope of work under present government policies? How far should any government go to help Britain's declining areas?
The Williams family and The Rt Hon Cecil Parkinson , MP come face to face to discuss their different visions of Britain after the strike.
