The last of six programmes which trace the pattern of speech in Britain today.
Introduced by Melvyn Bragg with comments by Stanley Ellis , one of Britain's leading dialect experts. The New Men of Kent
In the 1930s miners from all over the country flocked to the only area where there was still plenty of work, the newly-developed Kent coalfield. They came to pits like Betteshanger, near the quiet south coast resort of Deal, and brought with them accents and attitudes which were as alien as if they'd come from another planet. How far have their speech and social values been softened by this transplant of 40 years ago?

The sixth of seven programmes
Two mobile Task Force constables cruise around Blackpool watching and waiting and ready to pounce. Their call-sign is 'Z Charlie Four'. It is July - the height of the holiday season. The factories of the North have closed down for the Wakes Week break - and the town is packed with holidaymakers intent on fun, mischief, mayhem or worse.
Waiting for the troublemakers are Bernard Carter and George Heywood of the Lancashire Police, and in this frank documentary film about the real Z Cars, there is plenty of trouble. Drunks, gangs, car-thieves, burglars, thugs and hoodlums - all are grist to the mill of the two men who answer the call 'Z Charlie Four'.

Russia Through the Looking-glass
' Television is the mirror of our society' is how Soviet Television's deputy chairman describes the service which reaches 250 million People living in the largest country in the world. For two hours, Worldwide will look through that mirror with examples of programmes, interviews with the people who make them and the viewers who watch them. As filming freely in the Soviet Union is not easy, this glimpse at their television offers a rare opportunity to see something of the human as well as the official face of Russia.
Moscow has four TV channels and an enormous output. Worldwide looks at three aspects of it: news and current affairs-what are the aims and priorities; education which entertains as much as informs; popular entertainment, including an extract from their show which won this year's Montreux Silver Rose.
Mr Brezhnev has called television ' the greatest weapon our party possesses ... to shape the new Soviet citizen! '
Presented by Frank Gillard from Moscow
