117th Open Championship from Royal Lytham and St Anne 's Golf Club.
Royal Lytham and St Anne's, nestling among houses and bordered by a railway line is not, at first sight, a great location for a traditional links course. However, its history is illustrious and the course is a formidable test, particularly the back nine holes when the wind blows from the north.

When prejudice is combined with power, which the prison officers have over the lives of inmates, then you certainly have a situation of racism.... So says one race relations expert.
This week Ebony examines the Home Office's efforts to eradicate racism from the prison service through its Race Relations Policy. One aspect of that policy is to employ more black prison officers. Follow new recruit Gareth Reid through his training and first day at
Wandsworth. And in the week before the US Democratic
Convention, meet advertising executive Frank L. Mingo Jr who is advising Presidential candidate Michael Dukakis on black issues.

Two films showing the day-to-day life inside a prison, made by those who live and work behind the locked gates.
Part 1: The Prisoners' Film
There's no attempt at rehabilitation; it's just containment, and containment breeds resentment and tension. Bev, Edge, Titman, Llewellyn and the others are inmates of HM Prison Swansea, 'banged-up' for up to 18 hours a day in tiny cells, which are overcrowded and lack the most basic facilities. Worrying about their families on the outside, they pass their time in whatever way they can:
"Smoking cannabis steals a day from the Government."
"Fiddling for food, for tobacco - anything to be one up on the system."
"If you can't cope, then you break. If you break, that's when you get suicides."
Open Space is the series where the public can make programmes under their own editorial control helped by the COMMUNITY PROGRAMME UNIT ('The Prison Officers' Film' tomorrow)
