Pictures of Home
Homelessness in the 80s has reached epidemic proportions. The problem is no longer confined to the inner cities, but exists in every area of this country. Pictures of Home talks to people in rural Cornwall, where holiday caravans have been turned into temporary housing, and where the tranquil beauty of the open countryside belies the misery and despair of their day to day existence.

No Bag of Roses
Linda is 25. She can barely talk, has no road sense, and cannot look after herself properly. Yet against her mother's wishes she has been moved from a mentally handicapped hospital into a supervised home in Oldham. She is only one of 42,000 mentally handicapped patients whom the Government says must be taken out of institutions and - for their own sakes - made to live in the normal community. David Taylor examines the reality of a policy of radical reform - a policy which has provoked widespread criticism in both hospitals and the community, and is even questioned by its beneficiaries - the mentally handicapped themselves. 'They think,' says one ex-patient, 'it's going to be a bag of roses outside, but it's not - it's tough.' Research

Introduced by Jonathan King J.K. is back, travelling the length and breadth of the USA to bring you a brand new series of Entertainment USA. The little Hawaiian island of Maui, 3,000 miles from Los Angeles, in the middle of the Pacific, is about as far as you can get from mainland America and still be in America. Everyone says what a tough life it must be to do this show - it is, as J.K. looks at all the lush vegetation, bendy palm trees, golden beaches, a few exotic fruits and peers into a volcano. He also chats to an old friend - one of the world's and America's biggest stars, in the middle of his world tour - England and Watford's own Elton John.

The second of two films Full Circle
Harold Wilson was the first Prime Minister to master television. He saw the importance of image, and he learned from President
Kennedy. Over the years, successive prime ministers have sought to win the hearts and the minds of the electorate with the help of an ever-growing army of media consultants: these advisors leave nothing to chance.
This second film plots the course that has often turned politicians into television personalities; news into photo opportunities and oratory into television quotes. Who sets the agenda? And do the viewers know more about the political process now than they did 50 years ago?
