- a memory of Edith Cavell
EDITH CAVELL was shot at dawn in Brussels by the Germans on 12 October 1915. As leader of an underground organisation she helped several hundred Allied soldiers to escape from under the very eyes of the Germans and faced her inevitable capture, imprisonment, trial and execution with stoicism.
ROWLAND RYDER. author of a recent biography of Cavell, and RUTH HELLYER , MILLICENT BATTRUM and ELIZABETH WILKINS , three of the nurses who worked with her, tell her story and of the execution which shocked even the Kaiser.
Edith Cavell 's journals and letters read by JILL BALCON. Producer JOHN KNIGHT
The Democrats and the White House
Watergate and last year's Congressional Elections appeared to leave the Democrats as the major party in the United States but, as the campaign for the Presidential nomination gets under way. President Ford seems to be firmly in the driving seat. With potential candidates as different as Hubert Humphrey and George Wallace can the Democrats translate their success in getting Congressional votes into Presidential votes? Is a discernible platform emerging? Gerald Priestland has been back to the United States talking to leading Democrats and testing the temperature of American political opinion.
