A Licence to Breed Money
In America, scientists are rebuilding the farm-yard animal. Genetically-engineered cows will produce more milk and pigs will grow less fat. Imagination, the scientists say, is the only limit to the new technology. Companies insist these new animals should be patented. As these genetic blueprints become reality Michael Robinson reports from America on the growing dispute over the commercial future of animals made by man.
Are You Being Served - Badly?
Battered from struggling through Christmas shopping and the sales? You'll be glad to hear that one high-street chain is training its sales assistants to be 'warm and fuzzy' - so will stores now be competing to coddle the customer? Francine Stock reports.

The story of America's civil rights years 1954-1965 in six parts, told by the men and women who fought the second American revolution.
1: Awakening 1954-1956
In 1954 the Supreme Court ruled that segregation in schools was unconstitutional, but it would take more than a federal declaration to shake the institutionalised racism in individual states. In 1955 a 14-year-old black boy was murdered for 'talking fresh' to a white woman. The
Emmett Till case raised black consciousness right across the United States. Produced and directed by JUDITH VECCHIONE

1952
Harry Carpenter looks back to the stories which made the news and meets some of the headline-makers. The year in which
King George VI died, Lynton and Lynmouth were devastated by floods and Captain Carlson of the Flying Enterprise became a household name.
In sport a Briton won a Winter Olympic gold medal; a Czech achieved a remarkable treble in the summer Olympics, winning the 5,000 metres. 10,000 metres and the marathon; and a housewife and a disqualified bookmaker commentated on the Grand National.
