My Father, My Country In 1938, three Australian patrol officers set out on an extraordinary journey into the unexplored highlands of New Guinea. Their purpose was to make contact with Stone Age tribes who knew nothing of the white man or the outside world. They were to try to explain to the tribes that their lives were about to undergo incredible change.
Fifty years later, Meg Taylor , the Papuan daughter of the patrol's leader, took time off from her legal practice and, with the aid of her father's diaries, photographs and film, set off on her own journey of discovery - retracing the path of that first epic patrol. Producer PETER butt

How will the 80s be understood in 30, 40, 50 years' time? This is the second of six personal guesses at how future generations may interpret the past ten years. Fantasy Island
The 80s were the age of parody. Novelist and rock biographer Philip Norman takes an acerbic look at
British lifestyle in the past ten years.
'When I was young, I used to watch a television series about a place of make-believe. Whatever disguise you wanted was possible - however absurd, however childish. This, for me, is what Britain became in the 1980s -
From American rock diners to
Medieval banquets - every exotic and nostalgic style has been adopted and sold.
Marketing was all, the 'logo lout' ruled. Philip Norman 's heroes have shunned self-delusion and spoken out with sincerity - among them, paradoxically, the future king of Fantasy Island.
