(Studio) Independent commission recommends British government give back land relinquished during World War II.
REPORTER: Roger Mudd

(Tyneham Village , England) In 1943, Winston Churchill moved residents out and established gun range. Promised to restore to citizens after war, but never did. [Original resident John GOULD - wants to retire to Tyneham village.] [Colonel John PALEY - says gunnery needed to train military] Committee of 43 is protection agency to keep speculators from moving in. [Committee, 43 chairperson Rodney LEGG believes commercialism must not ruin beautiful-rugged land when army moves out.] Even if government returns land, lifestyle of Tyneham can't be recreated.
