Falling Leaves and Beating Hearts
The last of three programmes Running Wild
Narrated by Ron Pickering Wild horses and wild kids - what can they possibly have in common . . ?
America's prison population doubled in ten years. Today, one out of every 600
Americans is in a prison cell - and a high proportion of the inmates are juveniles.
Now, in a courageous scheme devised by a far-seeing group of pioneers in the West, wild mustangs and even wilder kids, some of them with 14 year sentences, are getting to know each other - the hard way. There are startling benefits for them both. Producer BOB SAUNDERS

Sir Michael Tippett 's two oratorios A Child of our Time and The Mask of Time span nearly half a century in which he has returned again and again to the universal themes of time and history.
Tonight he looks back over 50 years as a composer in a violently changing world.
Part 2: Tippett
A Child of our Time
Sir Michael Tippett 's oratorio is a compassionate outcry against injustice and persecution, enhanced by the use of negro spirituals.
Sir Michael himself describes the work as a passion about man 'whose god has left the light of the heavens for the dark of the collective unconscious.'

Both won Oscars at RKO, but while Ginger Rogers'... was obedient and did things I was told to do ...',
Katharine Hepburn insisted on doing things her way. We hear of Ginger's formidable mother, Lela Rogers , her acting school at RKO, and a favourite pupil, Lucille Ball.
