Investigates, Discovers, Questions This week:
Working Mothers - Should They? Can They?
Is there life after birth for the mothers of Britain's pre-school children? Only 40 per cent of them feel that full-time motherhood is the right thing to do. Already, nearly a million mums leave their under-fives with someone else while they go out to work, and more and more women are demanding the right to a job as well as a baby. But the Government's declared policy is ' stay at home and look after your children yourself, full-time.'
Harold Williamson talks to mothers who need the money, who need the break and who need their careers, and investigates the people who look after other people's children: in day nurseries and in their own homes, legally and illegally. He and Jenny Conway explore the rights of mothers and seek an answer to the question: if Mum goes out to work what is best for herself and her child?

for the BBC2 Trophy Leigh v Barrow

Barrow, determined to get back into the First Division this season, have made some interesting signings including two Rugby Union players from Wales - Chris Camilleri and Alan Evans - and Ian Ball from Lancashire, who is among the leading points-scorers so far this season.
