Narrated by PAULINE COLLINS and JOHN ALDERTON Mr Daydream
Narrated by ARTHUR LOWE
Produced and directed by TREVOR BOND and TERRY WARD
Introduced by Johnny Morris and Terry Nutkins
Another chance to see Johnny and Terry's two-part adventure when they travel to the other side of the world to bring back two dolphins for a dolphinarium in Britain. Terry, who's in charge of the operation, says: 'These two dolphins would, unhappily, have been killed by the Japanese fishermen, if we hadn't stepped in. So you could say these animals have been reprieved.'
And Johnny meets a group of wild monkeys, feeds a herd of sacred deer, discovers the most expensive fish in the world, and sees a colony of wild animals living in Tokyo zoo.

The feature film starring Jamie Lee Curtis as Dorothy Stratten
The brief career of Dorothy Stratten as a budding actress flickered only momentarily in a world of stars and superstars, but her death was a tragedy played out against the glamorous backdrop of Hollywood.
Jamie Lee Curtis, star of Halloween and winner of a British Academy Award for her role in Trading Places, plays the vulnerable teenager who was too trusting of the husband who helped propel her from obscurity to stardom.

The Shakespeare Globe project is an attempt to reconstruct a replica of the Globe Theatre on the Thames Bankside - as close as possible to the original.
This film follows the early stages - the raising of 16 million dollars, the battle for the site, the arguments over 16th century design.
The founder of the project is American actor/director Sam Wanamaker who has dreamed of rebuilding Shakespeare's Globe for 30 years. He organised an eight-city American fund-raising tour and has brought together many of the richest and most influential people in the world to help him rebuild Shakespeare's theatre. With Michael York, Nicol Williamson, Douglas Fairbanks Jr, Millicent Martin, Cleo Laine and Johnny Dankworth, Lisa Harrow and Sam Wanamaker.
