Gordon Wilkins covers the world of motoring.

Foreign cars continue to sell well in this country despite high import charges. Do they offer the motorist more for his money than their British rivals, or is foreign-car ownership simply a fashion or a fad?
An on-the-spot enquiry from Silverstone where the latest cars of France, Germany, Italy, and the United States were tested on the circuit yesterday by British motoring correspondents.

A series which takes a critical look at the methods and effects of mass communication.

Within two years we can expect twenty-four-hour world-wide television. But what shall we see on it? The technical advance has been astonishingly rapid. But the programmes, apart from news and sport, have been widely criticised. What can we look for from satellite television - a boon, or world-wide boredom?

For Sale-Paradise?
For many people, paradise is a plot of land, a stretch of sand, eternal sun, and the sea-all of which can be found in the islands of the Bahamas. According to some advertisements in the British Press you can buy a plot in the Bahamas for as little as £5 down and £5 a month without interest charges, or £350 cash down. What do you get for your money? Jeremy James investigates.

The Vicar Bought A Jet Liner
One evening fifteen years ago a Danish vicar had to pay for two dinners in Spain because he had muddled his bookings. He ate them both. Today he is head of Scandinavia's biggest travel business and has his own airline. In spite of opposition from business competitors and the doubts of his own Church, he sells some of the cheapest holidays in Europe. And he still preaches to his parish every Sunday.
