A series of six programmes
For 12 years, Tomorrow's World has demonstrated more than 2,500 inventions and prototypes. Raymond Baxter, William Woollard and Michael Rodd now report on the hazards facing anyone who takes a new idea along the perilous road from the drawing board to the market place.
This first programme looks at the Cinderella of the British Motor Industry - Leyland's Truck and Bus Group. It has always made a profit but over the years most of it has been handed back to the ailing car division. Then the Ryder report made the Truck Group a profitcentre and Ron Ellis, the Manager of Truck and Bus, can move into battle in Europe with some of our best young engineers. The Risk Business lifts the covers on Ron Ellis's biggest gamble, the still-secret plans for the truck he hopes to launch in 1978.

On the morning tide the largest ship in the fleet will thread her way out of the trickiest harbour in the land. The Captain of HMS Ark Royal and his Commander have a testing few hours ahead - a challenging exercise in navigation and the task of forging the sailors once more into a shipshape crew.
As Ark inches into the open sea, the vice of naval discipline begins to bite...

Starring Rachel Roberts as Olwen
with Edward Hardwicke as Gareth, Diana Bishop as Megan, Michael Griffiths as David and Lynne Jones as Rachel
Olwen lives in a tumbledown farm up in the mountains - a lonely widow, virtually a recluse. Her only human contact is with the occasional shopkeeper and young Rachel, who delivers her papers.
For Rachel her visits to Olwen are half adventure, half honest friendship. But they also mean a time to 'put aside childish things.'
"Back of Beyond had delicacy and rare conviction." (Daily Mail)
"A haunting portrait of a woman alone... Rachel Roberts managed, as few actresses do, to suggest that she had been part of a rural landscape for many years." (Daily Telegraoph)
