Riots Next Year?
Ebony returns with a special report from Juliet Alexander in Handsworth.
Three months after the series of riots which began in Birmingham and spread rapidly to other cities, the political and social costs are still being counted.
In the Handsworth area alone •unemployment is four times the national average
•nine out of ten leave school without a job
020 per cent of the area is officially 'extremely deprived'. Ebony talks to the people of Handsworth about the reality behind the statistics and challenges the record of the city fathers and community leaders in the face of such urgent problems.
If the September riots have no effect, there are many who believe the only solution will be more riots, and this time the cost may well be even higher. Researchers

Eight programmes on the changing face of zoos and wildlife parks.
3: The Techno Zoo
A$10 million hothouse and a $7 million fridge show the extent to which some zoos go to make their inmates feel at home.
Jeremy Cherfas looks at penguins on ice beneath the Californian sun, and gorillas and orang-utans swinging in the steamy heat of Chicago's Tropic World in the depths of winter.
Vending machines for lizards and showers for pigs are just some of the technological tricks that zoos have devised to provide animals with something to do and the visitors something to watch. Producer GEORGE INGER BBC Bristol

Memorial to the Future
The 1951 Festival of Britain is planned as a reward for austerity. As more and more people complain about regulations and rationing, the government hopes this national celebration will cheer up the nation.
'To me, it was an exciting event. I always thought of it as a memorial to the future. There was a whole lot of past one should turn one's back on and there was the beginning of something new.'
The Festival brings the first glimpse of the new consumer age with TV sets on the never-never and red washing-up bowls.
With eight million visitors the Festival is a hit, but the last year of the Labour government is one of crises ... a dock strike, the Korean War, Cabinet resignations. A new-look Conservative
Party promising to 'set the people free' is waiting in the wings.
