Conflict takes over when communications break down in this series of five programmes about situations that depend on good communications - work, family, school, politics, even diplomacy.

Unless there's an outbreak of violence, or scandal, or a wild experiment being tried, most schools are taken for granted. We all know what school is like. But for teachers, and for the pupils, it's a daily drama, no less difficult for being familiar. How can the teachers reach the 30 restless faces in front of them? How can the kids get through the day?

Maggie, the head of the English department at a large friendly comprehensive, tries different ways to approach her pupils. In the film she works with one fourth-year class - a lively, noisy bunch who secretly admit to wanting to learn.
The film-makers brought educational psychologist Dr Richard Suchman to talk to both teachers and pupils to see how differently they see the same class. The results surprised everyone.
A BBC-TV production in association with KCET-TV (Los Angeles)
