EPISODE NINETEEN: “BY CONFRONTING OUR GOVERNMENT”

Anne and Helen reveal more about camp life, from living under canvas and the responses they get from the public to their (not so covert) operations to break into Menwith Hill.  Whilst living outdoors presents certain challenges it becomes clear that the social element of mixing with like minded individuals across the generations, makes up for any discomfort these grandmothers may endure.  Luckily in this windy lay by, just outside Menwith Hill, the police are also on hand to check they survive the elements to protest another day.

EPISODE FOURTEEN: YOU HAVE TO START SOMEWHERE

Helen and Sylvia meet with two students from Bradford University to talk about the virtues and disillusionments that befall the modern day peace campaigner.  Coinciding with an opportunity to meet with a local journalist, the women share insights, ideas and frustrations of a society that supports the upgrade of nuclear submarines yet arrests those that stand in opposition for breach of the peace.  As two generations come together, history shares a table with the future; so is it time for the batten to finally be handed down?
