Peter Taylor reports from Mali, one of the world's poorest countries, on The Politics of Hunger
Before the year 2000, the world is likely to face famine on a scale hitherto unknown. Today .more than half the African countries still face severe food shortages, despite the millions of pounds of western aid which have been poured in to rural development schemes. But will increasing overseas aid, as the Brandt Commission recommends, really lead to less hunger? Or are African governments forced by their very poverty to pursue policies which actively discourage the production of more food?

Suzanne and Jay Wilcox are well-off, happily married and want only one thing in life - their own child. When they invite a young girl to become the mother of a baby by the good-looking husband, complications inevitably result. The impending birth causes the couple, the free-wheeling girl and her drug-taking boyfriend, to re-examine their relationship and personal attitudes.
