One year in Heddington, Wiltshire. A documentary serial in eight parts.

At last the flagon comes up for auction, and the future of the church roof will be decided. The TB carriers are traced - badgers. The Ministry gassing team arrives to eliminate them. The village copes with the drought, thanks to the natural springs underneath the chalk hills. The parish council meets again to discuss the problem of cow pats. Someone has suggested that perhaps the cows should wear nappies.

In the early hours of 5 November, 1956 an Anglo-French paratroop force took off from Cyprus - its destination was Port Said. Operation Muskateer Revised had begun. Twenty years later General Sir Hugh Stockwell, the Allied Land Force Commander, talks to Frank Gillard about Suez - an operation which has been called 'a brilliant military success but a political disaster.'
