There was a time when
Third World countries could pay their way by selling raw materials to the First World. In the Dominican Republic, the fragile, developing economy relied on sugar exports. But when a slump in the world sugar market followed hard on the heels of the oil crisis, the Dominicans (and many others in the Third World) were unable to repay their debts abroad.
They were forced to ask the International Monetary Fund to step in with ready cash - and crippling austerity measures.
How much longer can the First World expect the poorer countries to play the world economic game by their rules? Does the way ahead lie in imposed belt-tightening, or in an altruism from the First World which may be to the long-term advantage of all members of the global family?

Two films introduced by John Ridgway
On 8 June, 1924,
George Mallory and Andrew Irvine set out to conquer the final slopes of Mount Everest.
When last seen, they were less than 1,000 feet from the top - and going strongly. Could they have made it? Wideworld examines the mystery, looks at new evidence, and interviews the last surviving members of the 1924 party.
Nine years later, in 1933, four other Britons set out on a rather different Everest expedition. They returned just a few hours later - with remarkable pictures of the summit. Now, the story of their epic high-altitude flight is told with film they shot that very day ...
Lastly, in this programme about the world's high places, the winner of this year's Mick Burke Film

Det Insp Bell:
George Ewart Evans was born in the Welsh valleys in 1909 and wrote about his adopted East Anglia in such books as Ask the Fellows Who Cut the Hay and Horse Power and Magic. He became Britain's leading oral historian with his recordings of the villagers of Blaxhall, Suffolk.
'Listening to the Blaxhall people, I realised that they were historical documents, books that walked, and nobody was recording them.' He made this film about his work in 1979. Written and narrated by George Ewart Evans Producer JOHN ARCHER
