A personal view of childhood in different societies by Urie Bronfenbrenner

'Chairman Mao is more dear to us than our parents', sing kindergarten children in China. Children growing up in all societies are surrounded by models which guide them into the roles they will play as adults. Some of these models are the real people in their lives, others the product of media and ideology. Which images are the most influential? What are the implications for children if we alter the traditional roles of mother and father?

Written and presented by Derek Cooper

Once completely covered in trees; in the early 19th century peppered with lead mines; now it's evolved into a beautiful rural valley, well-farmed and much used by tourists seeking escape from the industrial North East.
But there could be another change, from a boom in cement and fluorspar mining. The landscape and the community could suffer a further upheaval. Do the people who live there want it, and do any of the rest of us care?
