A series of eight autobiographical films with Malcolm Muggeridge
3: 1939-45 - Sussex in the 30s, War and M16, The Liberation of Paris
' A world fit for heroes - that was the promise for the 20s. By the time the 30s began it was clear that this promise would be tragically unfulfilled.... '
' You would look in vain for anything that could possibly be called liberation ... After all, the mere shifting of power isn't freedom. Put down the mighty from their seats and exalt the humble and meek. Well, what happens to the humble and meek when they're exalted? They too have to be put down. It's an endless process.'

The third of eight films presented by Fred Housego
York, Chester, Shrewsbury, Totnes -the list of well preserved medieval towns trips easily off the tongue, yet most of our towns are medieval in origin and are gradually beginning to give up their secrets.
Fred Housego visits Carmarthen in South Wales where Terry James, printer and local historian, has recently written a study of the town which reveals a pattern of development which stretches right back to the Romans.

... of documentary
A series of films portraying issues, stories and characters. The Last Resort
Glenthome is a high security-prison for young persons. Among the children behind its 18-foot-high perimeter fence are teenagers convicted of serious crimes like arson, rape and murder.
Glenthorne is in a suburb of Birmingham. Only two such prisons exist in Britain. This is the first documentary profile to be made in such an establishment. Among its 35 inmates are:
DARREN, whose temper is uncontrollable
CHRISTINE, whose good progress is suddenly marred by a bout of glue-sniffing, and John, detained during Her Majesty's Pleasure, for murder.
This portrait of Glenthorne shows how children, apparently beyond redemption, can be weaned by a subtle system of rewards and Punishments towards civilised behaviour and an eventual return to the outside world.
