Introduced by Johnny Morris with Terry Nutkins
Over the years Animal Magic has invited many children to the studio with their pets. But today Johnny and Terry take to the road to visit the homes of just some of the young people who've written in to us about their own special animals. Among others, they meet a pet racoon, two badgers that have to be taken for a walk every day, some wild squirrels performing in a back garden and an otter that likes classical music.

Three films in which Donny MacLeod enjoys an inside view of an exciting, enigmatic country. 1: Tokyo
Tokyo is arguably the most exhilarating and most confusing of the world's capitals. The visitor finds himself overwhelmed by the noise, dazed by the hectic pace and perplexed by the juxtaposition of East and West. What does this city, where exquisite taste still survives amidst the garishness and overcrowding, tell us about the Japanese? Mugging is unknown, so why does violence sometimes feel so uncomfortably close to the surface? DONNY MACLEOD attends a Japanese wedding, plays the country's ever-popular pin-ball game ' Pachinko' and finds himself in the thick of a pulsating street festival.

with Peter Woods and the BBC's reporters and correspondents around the world Weatherman
On her first visit to the dentist, a 7-year-old girl has her fillings without an injection. She smiles and feels no pain. A 10-year-old asthmatic boy who could not play games describes his new life made possible by hypnosis - "I never thought it would work, but it did. I just feel like a new boy." A Glasgow nurse undergoes major surgery using no general anaesthetic - only hypnosis. She remains conscious throughout - "It feels like an elastic band being pulled." A wartime RAF pilot describes how a 30-year pus-ridden rash, which appeared after a near-miss incident, cleared up after he began using self-hypnosis. A factory worker who lost his voice two years ago, following a domestic tragedy, speaks again - but only in trance. This is the first stage of treatment in which a consultant believes his voice will eventually return.
Patients and doctors describe how they use hypnosis to treat various forms of illness. This film depicts hypnosis not as a panacea nor cure-all but an increasingly important adjunct in the doctor's armoury.
