To Have, or to Hold?
Divorce today can be a costly life sentence-for men. That's the claim of a growing number of husbands who feel their exwives are exploiting the law to the point of extortion. Or even worse, to jail: in 1977 there were two-and-a-half thousand imprisonments for failure to pay maintenance. But are these men simply trying to wash their hands of responsibility for the past, and for the future - their children? And haven't women, after centuries of maltreatment and injustice, only now reached the stage where they can claim some 'justice in divorce '?
Roger Cook and Bill Breckon take sides in the debate and ask whether men or women get the best of the divorce deal-

A feature about
Herman Melville (1819-1891)
Written and presented by Michael Meyer with Colin Blakely as Herman Melville
In one sad respect, the author of Moby Dick was unique among great novelists. He was both famous and forgotten in his lifetime.
Born in New York, he was 20 when he signed on as a cabin boy - a deeply shocking experience. His later adventures as a whaler, deserter and mutineer were described in his novels Typee and Omoo, which were successful, and in his masterpiece Moby Dick , which was a failure. Two years after Moby Dick , a fire at his publishers' destroyed his books and the plates from which they had been printed. They were not reprinted during his lifetime. Billy Budd , finished just before his death, was accidentally discovered some 30 years later, with TIM BENTINCK
