Michael Rodd presents a new series of programmes in which he continues to explore the animal world in Britain.
Even pet moggies have a chance to become champions at the annual National Cat Club Championship Show - the biggest in the world - held at Olympia in London. But a bewildering range of pedigree cats perhaps steal the thunder as Michael finds out with the expert guidance of Nick Henderson, veterinary surgeon and author of numerous cat books. A look behind the scenes at a cattery with Rosemary Gowdy, one of Britain's leading chinchilla cat breeders, shows us what is involved in breeding champions and preparing them for shows.

The world-wide obsession with the Dracula myth seems to be on the increase. The book which started it all, Dracula, was published in 1897 and has never been out of print. The stage play is always in production. More than 200 films have been made on the subject. Dracula has become a household name which can sell anything from ice lollies to package tours to Romania.
In tonight's film Dan Farson investigates the weird obsession of his great-uncle Bram Stoker, the author of Dracula, and discovers that behind the Dracula Business is something more than a fascination with horror- something that goes deeper in today's society than was ever dreamt of by its original creator.
Barry Norman looks at films for holiday entertainment including Caravan to Vaccares, starring Charlotte Rampling. Also a visit to the Barnes Museum of Cinematography at St Ives.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a
historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any
given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the
understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time
- not those of today.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
