The world's greatest animal star is introduced by Desmond Morris.
Chi-Chi's unsuccessful love-match with An-An was merely the most recent outbreak of 'panda-mania.' The pulling power of the panda has made it the most publicised animal idol on earth. Discovered less than a century ago, it is as much loved as it is little-known. What is the success-secret of the chubby, clumsy, black-and-white super teddy-bear?

Peter Stone and Bryan Silcock report on three teams that chose to go...
In at the Deep End
In one case a BBC film crew went - literally - in at the deep end with them. Producer, reporter, cameraman, and managing director all went to the bottom of the English Channel to discuss the firm's new product - and to make a film using it.
The three firms in tonight's programme have more than one thing in common: their bosses were all key engineers in large firms who left to set up on their own; they're all building up their own unusual branches of the electronics industry; they all chose to set up in development areas; and they're all well on the way to their first million.

Jamie's flying visit is a somewhat sentimental one. Because Jamie is calling to see Lois, an old and dear flame he hasn't met since they left Oxford ten years ago. He is 'still the same old Jamie' - but Lois has changed quite a bit. She is now domesticated in one of those small houses on a chic, newish estate. She has a noisy brood of children and a solid school-master husband.
"...very funny and sad comedy by Michael Frayn which more than justified one's hopes of his debut as a dramatist" (Daily Mail)
"The happiest Wednesday Play for weeks - a train of exquisite social embarrassments, each one jolting the next, the momentum always increasing" (Sunday Telegraph)
