The first of four debates set up under the wing of the access programme Something Else, Family Matters
What are the issues that concern people in their late teens and early 20s? Two groups of young people have come together, one in Rochdale and one in Preston, to set the topics for these informed debates and invite argument and discussion from a wide range of people of their own age. Each programme provides a platform for young people to express their own views, whether they are in work or out, middle class or working class, black or white.
In tonight's programme they will be talking about family life and how it is affected by the world outside.

A Killing Rain
In Norway, Sweden, Britain, Canada and the United States, rivers and lakes are turning acid. Fish are dying. In Germany there is wholesale destruction of the National Forests, and in Sweden toxic metals contaminate water supplies. The culprit held responsible for all these effects is acid rain-a poisonous blend of sulphur dioxide gas and dilute sulphuric and nitric acids, mainly produced by burning coal and oil.
It's become the major international pollution problem of the 80s. Putting it right will cost billions - in Britain it could put 15 per cent on our electricity bills. Not sur. prisingly we are one of the countries resisting change. But should we really wait for yet more proof that cutting down our sulphur pollution will reverse the ecological damage it causes? How seriously should we take the grim predictions of scientists that widespread changes in world climate, escalating damage to ecology, and insidi. ous poisoning of our drinking water will follow unless we learn to treat coal and oil as potentially dangerous fuels?
