Introduced by Johnny Morris and TERRY NUTKINS
Today Johnny visits the famous homing pigeons of Freedom Fields
Hospital in Plymouth, which fly across the city carrying blood samples from hospital to laboratory.
But how do you get homing pigeons to home in the first place? It's partly instinct, partly training. To find out all about it, Johnny and Terry set up a pigeon loft outside the Animal Magic studio in Bristol. By the end of this series the birds should be able to find their way back to the loft, even when released many miles away.

A Qualified Fool (1900-1976)
' All the public need to know about me is what they see. I stand or fall in my profession by their judgment of my performance and no amount of publicity can dampen a good one or gloss over a bad one.' (THE TIMES, June 1968) Alastair Sim was a very private person, one of the very few members of his profession who had a genuine horror of personal publicity. Janet Brown , George Cole , Christopher Fry , Kerry Gardner , Ian McKellen , Merlith McKendrick , Patricia Routledge , Naomi Sim , Peter O'Toole and William Trevor join in a celebration of one of the greatest and best loved comics Britain has ever produced. ' If he were to categorise himself he would recognise himself as being one of those great eccentrics who straddle time, the banner he was waving was for freedom, for individuality, for greatness of human spirit and a refusal to be constrained or bowed down by greater forces.' Narrated by Ian Holm
