Should a mother feed her baby from the breast or from a bottle? Does breast feeding hurt? Is it unpleasant or messy?
Bottle feeding may hold a greater risk of infection but the majority of babies born in this country are bottle fed.
Both methods are shown and a Children's Specialist discusses the problems with the two mothers.

'I enjoy more leisure in the four corners of a single year than a businessman knows in his whole life. I thus have what the businessman can never enjoy, an ability to think, and what is still better to stop thinking altogether for months at a time.'
In the late 1940s the humorist Stephen Leacock, who had been a professor of economics at McGill University, Montreal, for 36 years, retired or rather (as he put it) 'was fired on the grounds of senility.' He lived at Orillia on the shores of Lake Simcoe and tonight's programme recreates a summer evening at his home, Old Brewery Bay, where he remembers his life and times.

The props for this programme are pistols, muskets and, above all, explosives. For 30 years now these are what Colonel Brian Shaw, marksman and lecturer in chemistry, has been using in his now famous lecture on explosives. He gave it once again for Horizon before an invited audience at University College, London.
But Colonel Shaw does not merely interest his audience. He deafens them, showers them with cotton wool, and above all entertains them. In his performance Colonel Shaw has combined a lesson in chemistry with a variety act and retained the best of both.
