The Last of the Pagans The origins of the spectacularly rich royal burial found in Suffolk in 1939, have remained a mystery ever since its discovery. Who were the people who created this wealth, ruled over by the Raedwald, whose lavish and awesome regalia lay buried with his funeral ship? Where was the royal palace and where did its supporting population actually live - and where did these people really come from?
In the final programme
Professor Martin Carver continues his new excavations at Sutton Hoo in search of archaeological answers to these problems, raised in the turbulent years of the coming of Christianity to England.
The new discoveries of ritual executions and strange contorted burials are utterly different from the great formal earth monuments to the king. They open a trail which leads Professor Carver to Sweden and Denmark to answer the question: was Sutton Hoo really a great memorial to the last of the pagans?

A series of films about the way we live now. Street Girls
Every day, every night, whatever the weather, there are juvenile prostitutes working on the streets close to the city centre of Birmingham.
The beat flourishes, although it is within yards of the police station and goes past several schools. Prostitution is such an open way of life that vulnerable young girls easily get drawn in. Some are only 13- or 14-years-old.
Tonight, teenage girls like Lorraine and Christine explain why they go on the streets and how they survive. A pimp tells how he lives off the money that his young street girl earns - and how he treats her.
All too often the girls wish that they had never gone 'on the game'. Young runaways find it easy to take to the streets, harder to get away.... Narrator Linda Davidson Research SAMIRA OSMAN
