Race for a Parent
Few subjects arouse more passion in those personally involved than that of mixed race adoption. Can a family bring up a child of a different ethnic background without prejudicing its future? To what extent should the search for a permanent home be influenced by concern for a child's racial identity? Should a foster mother be unable to go on to adopt the child she has grown to love because she is of a different race? Antonia Higgs meets those who have tackled these problems; the councils and adoption agencies charged with placements, the parents desperate to adopt and those who grew up in adoptive families of differing races. A Mindseye Television production for BBCtv

Constables are under pressure to improve their management of staff and money. But some of them fear that Whitehall's plans for efficiency could lessen public confidence in the police at a time when allegations of corruption and bad practice have put it under severe strain.

Gregory Chaitin, one of the world's three leading mathematicians, addressing the camera from the deep recesses of the IBM building in Yorktown Heights, New York State. He cheerfully proposes that he has proved nothing is fixed in a shifting universe. However, for others numbers promise pattern and certainty - Rabbi Dr Tali Lowenthal believes everything has numerological significance up to and including the Name of God too holy to be written; to record producer Andy Richards all music comes down to the number 4; to Janet Street-Porter, numbers give a lift to the nomenclature of her TV output, and to Michael Gardner 666 is truly the Mark of the Beast. Most of us take numbers for granted - Arena takes a second look.
