A series of six programmes looking beyond the barrack gates at family life in the army. 5: In British Forces Germany, civilians like
Elsie, a health visitor with SSAFA - the Soldiers', Sailors' and Airmen's
Families Association - try to provide family care. Where there's no extended family she's a surrogate auntie and mum.
Army divorce figures are 18 per cent higher than those for England and Wales.
Young wives posted abroad with their husbands spend months as single parents in foreign countries while their husbands are sent away on duty. When marriages fail it's often families' officers who pick up the pieces.
Tony, a new SSAFA social worker, found his situation mirrored that of the wives.
He was so unhappy he asked his wife to give up her job and join him within a few months. 'I certainly leamt,' he says, 'that being an army wife isn't a bowl of cherries.' Filmed in West Germany, this programme looks at an army medical centre and a families' office.

The Troubleshooter
Discussion
For the last six weeks
Sir John Harvey-Jones , ex-chairman of ICI, has taken on the role of industrial detective. He has been hot on the trail of ways to improve production methods, design and above all management.
Tonight Sir John faces some of the recipients of his advice and a number of other industrialists to attempt to chart a way forward for Britain. Why is . this country still dropping in the world's industrial league table? Are we not ambitious enough? Too slow to change? Or are the problems even more fundamental than that?
How can we do it better?
