Ten films about development issues in India
2: Five Million Children
Half of all the deaths in India are of children under the age of 5. While so many children continue to die so young, millions of parents will continue to have five or six children rather than two. This film looks at this problem in different parts of India, and especially at the work of the Gandhi-gram Institute of Rural Health and Family Welfare in the southern state of Tamilnadu. Here, during the last 20 y ur, there has been a dramatic improvement in the health of very young children, and the birth rate has been halved.

Foreign Correspondent
The really awful thing about British foreign policy in this period was that it was not appeasement. It was strengthening an aggressive, wicked dictatorship that was going to bring nothing but disaster for the whole world.
During the 1930s, Shiela Grant Duff was one of the many young people who viewed the rise of Fascism in Europe with concern, and who felt that the British government's policy of appeasement, particularly towards .Adolf Hitler, would lead to war. And like many of her contemporaries, Grant Duff felt she must do something to avert a war in Europe. So she chose to become a foreign correspondent, to describe what was actually happening in Europe and warn the British public of the consequences of their government's policy. Narrator ANDREW FAULDS
