This week 9-2-5 follows a working mother as she travels to work with her baby.
By 1995 population changes will result in companies having to employ more women than at any time since the Second World War. Yet attitudes are still firmly rooted in the past.
Britain has the worst record in Europe for the provision of child care. The programme looks at a company that is leading the way by catering for the special needs of women with children.
And from the 9-2-5 office a discussion on the issues that affect people at work in 1989. In episode three of The Move, staff receive 'the letter'. Good news for some and disappointment for others as they discover what the company will offer them to move to their new location. Series editor TIM SHAWCROSS

The Rhine - Romance and Rubbish Susannah York introduces the third of six programmes which look at our use and misuse of the North Sea.
One of the major pollution problems for the North Sea is the waste dumped into the rivers which feed it. Of these, the Rhine, the most industrialised and the biggest, is the worst.
Recent chemical accidents have highlighted not just the dangers, but also the attempts to tackle the problem of Europe's industrial waste. Executive producer JOHN MAPPLEBECK

The Kingdom of Fun
'Welcome to the new empire of leisure,' proclaims
Frankie Howerd in his toga, surrounded by Roman centurions. The empire in question is the Metro Centre, a vast new shopping complex in the industrial dereliction of Tyneside. 'This centre embodies everything I believe Thatcherism is about,' says John Hall , its creator. He's a flamboyant multi-millionaire with a personal crusade to regenerate the North East.
Hall's world is one of fantasy parks and shopping malls designed like theatre sets. It is also a world of secret deals - and a dramatic plot to take over a famous football club. John Hall believes that with leisure he can lead the way towards a new kind of society in Britain. Yet a generation ago there was another man in the North East who spoke in remarkably similar terms.
His name was T. Dan Smith. ... Photography CHRIS SEAGER Film editor CAROL OWENS Producer ADAM CURTIS
