Newsreader: He in turn has been revealed by D'Arcy as
something less than an honest man. Sybil feels once again a
resurgence of her old affection and she and Balreau return to her

(Cut to a photo of a French construction site. The camera
tracks over the photo.)
Presenter: The ease of construction, using on-site
prefabrication facilities (the camera starts to pull out slowly
from the photo to reveal the photo is part of the backdrop of a
documentary set about the building trade; the documentary Presenter
is sitting in a chair) makes cheap housing a reality. The walls
of these houses are lined with pre-stressed asbestos which keeps the
house warm and snuggly and ever so safe from the big bad rabbit, who
can scratch and scratch for all he's worth, but he just can't get
into Porky's house.

"CHILDREN'S STORY" '
Presenter: Where is Porky? Here he is. What a funny little

ending up with toys) making it clean and tidy and making all the

SUPERIMPOSED CAPTION: 'NO IT HASN'T'
Presenter: . .. and toys and shiny cars that go brrm,
brrm, brrm, (shots of toys) and everybody was happy and
singing all the day long (cut to the Presenter; by now he has a
big kiddies' book which he shuts) and nobody saw the big bad
rabbit ever again.
(Cut to a politician giving a party political broadcast in one
of those badly lit sets that they use r broa4kasts of that nature.)
Politician: But you know it's always very easy to blame
the big bad rabbit...
SUPERIMPOSED CAPTION: 'NOW IT'S BECOME A PARTY POLITICAL
Politician:. when by-elections are going against the
Government, (he turns and we catch a side camera which reveals a
cross behind him as for a religious broadcast) Do you think we
should really be blaming ourselves?
