An examination of family life by Anne Owen
"Scientifically we are returning to the belief of our earliest ancestors concerning the irreplaceable function of motherhood" (Geoffrey Gorer - Woman's Plato)
But it's this belief, lying at the very basis of traditional family life, which was challenged by the founders of the Kibbutz movement, and is now under fire from the woman's liberation movement and from some of the experimental communes in this country.
The final programme in this series investigates some of the ways in which families could be reorganised so as to liberate women from their traditional role and strengthen the links between the family and the community outside. Comments by Howard Gannaway.
The Alun Mold Singers conductor DRIAN HUCHES
The Aiun Mold Singers-a choir of 29, all girls - were formed in 1964: and, although the membership is ever-changing with the end of each scholastic year, this is among the most experienced children's choirs in Britain. It is shortly to be disbanded and re-formed under a new conductor.
Tonight's programme of songs from many lands includes two written by members of the choir.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a
historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any
given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the
understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time
- not those of today.
To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and
50s, you can navigate by issue.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
