A series of eight programmes 7: To Teesside, York and Hull
Novelist and playwright Beryl Bainbridge makes a journey around England and Englishness. She travels to many of the places visited by J. B. Priestley 50 years earlier for his book English Journey.
She goes to Billingham where she talks to a young man on his way to a prison sentence for violence, and to a couple of top executives from a company with a mine that they might fill with radioactive waste. York is much as Priestley found it: 'if you want the past, here it is, weighing tons'. In Hull a trawler-fleet owner explains how we lost the Icelandic fishing wars. Narration

The first of six personal views from the Third World
Namibia - Africa Last Colony
Africa's last colony is still struggling for independence from South Africa - after 100 years of foreign occupation. On the northern borders of Namibia, guerrillas are fighting a bush war against the armed might of South Africa. Both within the war zone and beyond, nine tenths of the population, the blacks, live under an imposed system of apartheid, especially in health, in education, and in housing.
The 'Eye' is Nora Chase , director of education for the Namibia Council of Churches, who speaks out strongly against the continued control of her country by South Africa against the ruling of both the League of Nations and the United Nations. Nora Chase describes the conditions in her country, a land she returned to six years ago, after 15 years of exile and looks at the way that apartheid has been imposed on Namibia by the South Africans and talks to Namibians who have been tortured by South African troops.
