'I think that the puppet is an extraordinary, powerful force ... In my opinion it means so much more than any painting or any piece of music or any play acted by a live person'. John Wright runs the Little Angel Theatre in Islington, London. He writes and produces puppet plays and designs and makes the puppets to take part in them. This film looks at the creation of one puppet, and the play for which it is intended.

Mr Homersham lives alone and embittered, his sight gone and nobody to care for him - until he meets young Jamshyd. How's he to know that a boy with a cockney accent isn't a good old-fashioned Londoner
- a white man like himself?
Produced and directed by ROGER TONGE
South Africa today stands isolated, its policies shunned, and the beleaguered government of President P. W. Botha under attack from both right and left.
White extremists promise to crush black resistance 'into the gravel' while black moderates like
Archbishop Tutu call for tough economic sanctions against the government.
As the violence continues, Deputy Foreign Minister Ron Miller appears by satellite from Pretoria to explain his government's policies and to answer the questions of young people from all over Britain.
Would he take part in a programme like this with black teenagers in his own country?

The last in the series Midwives
'It's like when you cut into an apple, it's fresh and new, no one has ever seen the inside of that apple. It's very similar when you are doing a delivery - no one else has ever seen that particular baby bom, just you.'
(JANETPEARCE, senior midwife)
Midwifery is perhaps the most fulfilling variety of nursing. It's also one of the oldest professions in Europe and one that women have made their own. But many midwives feel that their status is now being undermined by doctors.
At Mile End in east London, midwives are determined to regain their traditional responsibilities. Follow their work as they care for pregnant women in the community and deliver up to four babies per shift in the labour ward.
