Programmes for parents about children.

There comes a time when the child needs the company of other children of his own age. The Nursery School provides this opportunity and enables him to investigate the nature of raw materials: to paint and model: to run and jump: to dress up and play out various roles. Unfortunately there are very few Nursery Schools available.

Character is largely determined by what happens in early childhood. What part does religion play in the critical years? Is it right to indoctrinate? What other forces are at work on the child's growing personality, and how do parents cope with them? These questions are put to specialists and parents.

Fr. John Coventry, S.J., Provincial of the English Jesuits
James Hemming, child psychologist
Marjorie Reeves, author of Growing Up in Modern Society
The parents: Margaret Jones, Dominic Bruce, T. E. Utley

A fortnightly magazine of the arts.
Introduced by Huw Wheldon.
Tonight's programme includes:
The New Generation 1964
British painting seems suddenly to have taken on a new look-huge, vivid, and assured; and the painters themselves have some of the same characteristics.
Tonight in an Outside Broadcast from the Whitechapel Art Gallery, London, five men and a girl (all except one under thirty) face questions from an invited audience about what it is like to be a young artist in Britain 1964.
"Anything that moves quickly interests me - fast music, fast sport, old films speeded-up, quick wit".
"I leave my paintings untitled - intentionally. The thing about a title is it's too likely to conclude the meaning of the painting and to limit it to the meaning of the title".
"In my paintings I want to project extraordinary things as forcibly as possible, but ultimately so that they seem ordinary. I am not out to shock".
