From the teacher's notes

"This programme will concentrate on racial prejudice. Scene has transmitted programmes with examples of prejudice in other contexts: Autumn term - prejudice against victims of crime and against women; this term - programmes 3, 5, 10; Summer term - programme 4 and programme 6, which includes a film by partially sighted children explaining prejudice against them. Teachers may find it useful in class discussion to ask pupils to think about these and other contexts." - Scene teacher's notes spring 1980 p.8.
