Motorway design Britain plans to have over 1 000 miles of motorway open by the mid-1970s a reasonably creditable achievement in view of the country's late entry into the field. The stretch of the M5 near Clevedon (shown above) will be part of it. But what of the future of road communication? Is it already, as some suggest, being overtaken by events like the environmentalists' reaction Ian Breach writes on pp 42-49

Theatre rebuilt Bristol's Theatre Royal has been made the centre of a brand-new complex - though its foyer is now an 18th century guild hall. Josť Manser describes the project on pp 25-29

Stamps as information Almost by definition, stamps are seen by everyone, which is why they are so useful for disseminating information and propaganda. Robert Waterhouse reports on pp 30-33
