Living with Dying
Do you know someone dying of a terminal illness? What will you do when the doctor or the hospital can do no more?
Horizon visits a hospice near Southampton, where gin, whisky and cigarettes are served along with liberal amounts of doctors' and nurses' time. Separated from the hospital, it is nevertheless part of the Health Service. There is no need for a terminal patient to suffer severe pain, and Countess Mountbatten House is not afraid to use strong pain-killers like heroin. Though drugs cannot stop emotional pain, the care and understanding of the staff can help patients to discover a new way of living and in some cases to return home.
With the NHS so short of money, what can be done to ensure that the hospice philosophy continues? Narrator PENELOPE LEE

A series of four programmes with Harold Evans
Editor of the Sunday Times 3:Pictures Make News
' It's sometimes thought that the arrival of the moving picture made the still image obsolete. I believe quite the opposite.'
HAROLD EVANS argues for the vitality of the still image-using not only some of the most striking news photographs ever published, but also some of the remarkable on-the-spot drawings done by the ' special artists ' who covered the news in the 19th century.
