HOLY BEASTS. Rose Thompson-McCausland at CTVC Studios is researching the history of the Nativity animals for a Channel 4 Christmas programme.

Religious education teacher, Paul Hopkins, is a great believer in the use of games, quizzes and puzzles to teach his subject and would like fellow compilers of RE word searches, acrostics, crosswords and games to send their work to him. He will put them together and distribute back to all contributors, copyright free, for the cost of replication and postage (about Pounds 5 for a 100-page booklet). Address: Heritage School, Boughton Lane, Clowne, Derbyshire.


This two-year expedition by camel, which will be Circumnavigating Australia Motivating Environmentalists at Local Level, is about to depart.
