Today in Britain about 20.000 children stayed away from school. Not from truancy - from choice. Their parents are part of a growing army who - quite legally - opt to educate their children themselves. Barbara Myers looks at three families in London and the south east for whom. quite literally, school's out.

with John Pitman
Six films which go behind the scenes of places which are part of the British way of life. 2: Heathrow
Heathrow is the world's busiest airport - 45,000 people work here and cater for 75.000 passengers a day. Here is Bemadette MacDonaId, check-in girl. never without a smile on her face. 'It comes on when I arrive and it gets peeled off like a mask when I leave.'
Up on the roof the plane-spotters are bugging the control tower for up-to-date information. In terminal three, the photographers are snatching the stars. Today, it's Shirley Bassey.
There are tearful farewells and happy reunions. And, as evening draws in, 86-year-old Mrs Amelia Goodman from Clacton-on-Sea prepares to make her first flight. She's never been further than Margate. Today she is emigrating to Australia to be with her family.
Flying in is another greatgrandmother - HM The
Queen Mother For her, it's just another flight; for Amelia it's a big, brave new experience. 'Have 1 got to go in that?' she asks her son. as the Jumbo stands waiting. But go she does - giving everybody a little wave from the steps. Just like somebody else we all know and love ...

Salvador Dali
'The only difference between me and a madman is that I am not mad.' So says
Salvador Dali one of the most famous painters in the world. Dali now lives as a recluse and has been virtually unseen since his near death in a suspicious fire two years ago. Having courted publicity all his life he is now shrouded in secrecy.
Dali is the great showman of Surrealism, the creator of the So/< Wa<c/: and the Lobster TMep/MKe. As a painter his style is unique, yet perhaps his greatest achievement is his own personality. Dali is a self-pronounced genius.
Today Dali lives in the palace museum which he has built as a monument to Ms life, and holds court in the room which he never leaves. .4reKa traces his career through film, much of it from Dali's own private archive, and combines the testimony of his closest associates, including
Captain Peter Moore and Amanda Lear , and his Surrealist contemporaries Max Ernst , Luis Bunuel and Man Ray , with Dali's own extravagant account of his life and adventures.
