'The image I got of the police was from friends and what's in the press - mostly the bad things - like they go round beating people up and harassing people in the street ... and for those reasons, I'd never thought I would join the police force.'
PC LENNIE JOHNSON , aged 21
How do young police officers cope with that image? How do they see their relationship with the public, especially with youths? And how do they reconcile their 'community spirit' with their duty to enforce the law?
To find out. Scene followed four young police officers for a week through their training and on the beat.

William Woollard tests
Toyota's new four-wheel-drive Celica intended to challenge for world rally honours, but also the first car on sale in Britain that runs only on unleaded fuel. On the race track, the long standing Formula Ford is joined this year by Formula Vauxhall-Lotus, as a showcase for young talent. Tiff Needell tests cars from both formulas around the challenging
Snetterton circuit in Norfolk. Plus Chris Goffey assesses the chances of Mazda's newly-released 121 in the fierce supermini sector, and Sue Baker takes a look at the esoteric world of trials riding. Producer KEN POLLOCK

What Price Fresh Air?
Eight years ago American scientists proved conclusively that lead in petrol damaged children's brains. Since then there has been a steady campaign against it. But many British motorists are still confused. And some oil companies have been slow on the uptake. So who can use lead-free petrol and at what cost? Nature has been finding out. Also, the return of the rat: why water sport enthusiasts are being warned about a disease carried by Britain's most common rodent.
Plus the latest live news from around the world.

A series of films about our lives - now
The story of life on the waiting list of an NHS hospital.
Paul Sillery has heart disease. He's been waiting nine months for an operation at St Thomas' Hospital in London. He is in pain - and at risk. The narrowings in his coronary arteries mean an ever-present threat of a sudden heart attack. 'It's like living in limbo,' says his wife Cindy, 'just waiting for the time he will go in.' Fred Taylor , a 79-year-old widower, has been waiting two-and-a-half years for his operation. His condition is not life-threatening, but it is degrading. A trip to the supermarket sometimes becomes an ordeal.
Paul is the first to hear from
St Thomas ' - but with a warning. The hospital has already closed 137 beds. And every day operations are cancelled ...
