And We Went to ... Cyprus
In the third of four programmes Helen Oakes introduces some of the 1,500 British boys and girls who live in Cyprus with their parents who are abroad with the British Services.
At school they learn how to make traditional Cypriot dishes; and in their spare time build a hover-craft, and go riding. Some of them discover remains of the Greek and Roman Empires and others explore castles.
All of them enjoy the days of nearly endless sun and the food in this most easterly corner of the Mediterranean,

The feature film starring
Barbra Streisand David Selby
In this lively social comedy, Barbra Streisand plays Margaret, a young New Yorker with an identity crisis. She's married, has two children and a third on the way All this and a college professor husband who's more concerned with history than their present predicament. Margaret's escape is through fantasy-and the results are both unusual and humorous.
Screenplay by PAUL ZINDEL , based on a novel by ANNE RICHARDSON ROIPHE Produced by IRWIN WINKLER and ROBERT CHARTOFF
Directed by IRVIN KERSHNER
