If undetected, hearing loss may result in speech delay, poor performance at school, and behaviour problems. Routine surgery can treat the symptoms, but when hearing-aids can often effect a solution, are so many operations really necessary? Producer DAVID NELSON

The Hunger Winter
In September 1944, in retaliation for Dutch support of the Arnhem landings, the Nazis cut off all food supplies to the population of western Holland. Through the following winter, stocks fell until by March 1945 the official ration was down to 500 calories a day. As
4 million people faced death from starvation, the only hope of relief lay in persuading the Germans to negotiate an unprecedented truce. But as Dutch men and women died in the streets, the Allies still had a war to fight and a victory to win. In the end it took courage and nerve in the face of German guns at point-blank range to end the Hunger Winter.

Visions of Big Business
When Cadeby colliery in Yorkshire closed last year, the only chance of continuing employment for those who took redundancy was to run their own business. Ken Savage 's vision of big business was in selling china. In his community he's reckoned to be a success, but Ken's not so sure. He admits to being a bit frightened.
Former miners make reluctant entrepreneurs. Like the rest, there's something in Ken's background and surroundings which is holding him back.
