A programme for children under 5
by Clive King
With George Benson
It was Gargoyle, the Rectory Cat, who first noticed that something very odd was happening to the town of Ramsly. The railway station was awash, and Gargoyle's favourite hunting grounds outside the town seemed somehow to have become submerged in a sea of swirling, choppy, salty water. Ramsly was afloat!
A weekly series introduced by Johnny Morris

An objective look inside a unique phenomenon in the world of shops with comments from Sir John Betjeman, Marjorie Proops, Graham Turner
Department stores are very much part of British life-medieval market places, roofed over richly adorned and centrally heated. This programme examines the nature of one which grew from an obscure Victorian grocery to be a household word, a significant clue to understanding the British and a sophisticated joke.
An extraordinary shop designed to please the fastidious and the rich, it is also a mirror of social changes over the past 120 years.
Is it an anachronism in the 70s? Does it cater for a nostalgia for the sort of privilege we would all like? Or is it just one of those things that makes this country different from others? Like it or not, this huge emporium exists and flourishes.
