Let's Kill Nanny
"The welfare state is our enemy. It has failed entirely to deliver what it promised.
Worse than that, its tangled web of rules and obligations has destroyed the capacity of free men and women to make their own choices. The time has come to liberate ourselves from its cramping oppression." These are the views of David Marsland , co-author of a recent publication from the Adam
Smith Institute, entitled The End of the Welfare State. He argues that after 50 years, the welfare state has grown into a monstrous nanny which is strangling the economy and crushing self-reliance. Is it now time for it to be dismantled?

"If you have created garden, you have created a work of art," says Geoff Hamilton. A quarter of a century ago, Hamilton's predecessor Percy Thrower became the first gardening superstar, when Gardeners'
World evolved out of an earlier programme Gardening Club.
This celebration of the 25th anniversary traces the evolution of a programme that has made household names of screen gardeners, and has been at the forefront of the ever-growing popularity of gardening.
And how times and techniques have changed. In a pilot programme for Gardening Club the curator of Oxford's
Botanical Gardens wanted to show viewers the beauty of his blue water lillies. But the cumbersome television equipment took so long to set up that the lilies were closing by the time the crew was ready. So he offered viewers a loofah instead.

In 1979 George Roberts, son of a Fleetwood trawlerman and father of two boys, started the slow and painful process of becoming Julia Grant. This documentary following the intimate transformation has been re-edited to form the first two parts of this trilogy. The third programme updates the story and reveals how Julia is coping with her new identity and role.
The films caused a stir when first screened although, as producer David Pearson wrote in Radio Times: "Judging from the hundreds of sympathetic letters received, the programmes have promoted some understanding."
In this first film Julia talks about her life - from early childhood through homosexual encounters and drag queen performances - and undergoes cross-examination by an apparently unsympathetic NHS psychiatrist. Subtitled
