Nowhere to Run
"I left that night because it was my only chance. I probably would never get the chance to come downstairs again to phone," recalls an Asian teenager from Bradford, who had planned to run away from home for nearly a year.
She is one of an increasing number of 16-to 18-year-old Asian girls in Britain who are fleeingfrom parental restrictions. Some are escaping from arranged marriages, some are wantingto further their education. But there can be a high price to pay for their independence.
This first in a new series of Asian current-affairs programmes interviews some of the girls and the Bradford police, whose policy of aiding the runaways has been criticised by a variety of Asian community leaders. Executive producer Tony Moss Editor VyvSimson

A Talkback production for BBCtv
With £6 million invested in the production, the BBC must have been holding its breath over reaction to its dramatisation of George Eliot 's classic. But with the series ending tonight, they can not only breathe but also let out a cheer.
The acclaim has been universal - for its integrity, for its casting and for its adaptation. The Times has described it as "all but perfect" .
It was also backed up by its viewing figures - a total of eight and a half million people watched the first episode.
On Friday at 5.30pm on BBC2 there's a programme that goes behind the scenes during The Making of Middlemarch.
February 1832: the Lydgates' marriage grows increasingly bitter with the prospect of bankruptcy. But the return of Raffles, nowa sick man, sets off a train of events which dramatically change the lives of everyone in Middlemarch.
With Judi Dench as the voice of George Eliot.
Producer Louis Marks: Director Anthony Page
