    SPEECH TRANSCRIPT (SEQUENCE FIVE):



    BOSTOCK: "I think at the moment in schools, there's ben a big growth in computers and I think one of the most interesting things is the way in which computers can do more than just present screen designs. And it seems important for us that our children in schools should be, ought to be, able to use computers in all the variety of ways that they're used in industry."



    REPORTER, ANNE DIAMOND: "It's yet another step then towards the fact that most children are going to be understanding computers far more than their parents?"



    BOSTOCK: "Well, this is very true of course. I think children,as we've shown today, the young girls are finding this quite a fascinating thing. They want to go and want to play with it and I think as adults are being left very much behind."



    SPEECH TRANSCRIPT (SEQUENCE 10):



    REPORTER, CHRIS TRAVERS: "There seems to be a particular emphasis on the development of the so-called super-computer which can, it is believed, be able to think, to a certain degree, for human operators. What is the state of the competition there?"



    SHARPE: "Well, first, I don't think any computer is going to think. Just as any clock won't be able to tell you the time; you'll have to read it. You'll have to read what it says. The state of the play at the moment is that the Japanese are considerably advanced in their super-computer development and the United States have recently put on a spurt. And it's not clear, as I said before, which one is going to come out first. But piling more and more processing power in a machine is not going to crack the problem. It's not going to crack the central problems. We must have much more powerful computers than we have at the moment. The commercial range of computers at the top nowadays performs 10 or 12 million instructions a second. Undoubtedly true, with chip developments and with packaging developments, that in the next 10 years or so, that's going to double or probably treble. Now it's at the cutting edge of major commercial applications, widespread commercial applications, that the real money is made -- not just at the top end where you have one, two, 20, 50 super-computers."

    Background: International aviation experts gathered in Montreal, on Thursday (September 15) to discuss the shooting down of the South Korean airliner by the Soviets on September 1. The meeting was called by the South Koreans, and representatives of the 33 member countries, including the Soviet Union attended. On the first day, the delegates heard a hardhitting speech by the South Korean delegation which used words like 'blackmail', 'intimidation' and 'brutality'. The delegates claimed the civil airliner was like a deer which was skilfully trailed and hunted down by a savage animal. Making the speech, Park Kun, Dean of the Institute of Foreign Affairs and National Security in the South Korean Foreign Ministry, said the Soviets must have known they were shooting down a passenger airline. The International Civil Aviation Organisation is a United Nations Agency which drafts air safety rules. It is dominated by Western-member states who seem likely to pass a resolution condemning Moscow. Many delegates have called for tighter, improved rules of the air covering everything from navigation procedures to better co-ordination between civil and military air traffic controllers.

    After turning its back on the rest of the world for years, China is now anxious to increase its foreign trade. However, a major problem the country is facing is the state of its ports. Years of neglect have left the country without the infrastructure it needs to export its goods in sufficient quantities. Shanghai is China's largest port. Forty per cent of the country's trade passes through there, but the port is hampered by old equipment and inefficient handling. A new container port has been built and is waiting for the equipment to arrive. Other berths have started operating and more will follow. But the project means more than that. Access roads have to be widened to handle container trucks. Hectares (acres) of warehouse will be needed as well as housing for the work force. Others ports along the China seaboard are planning to follow Shanghai's lead. The development is vital for the country's economic growth. At present, most cargoes are still loaded up over the side -- under the direction of stevedores wearing hard hats made of rattan. It is a technique which has seen limited change since steamers took over from the old sailing junks which can still be seen plying the rivers. But China is determined that the ports will be upgraded and improved to suit modern needs.
