Would you swim with a 30-ton whale shark, 50 feet long and with a mouth five feet wide -the largest fish in the world?
Krov and Ann Menuhin - husband and wife film-partners in underwater adventure - did just that, and more. In the Gulf of California, they cruise and dive in one of the richest but least-known seas in the world. They meet huge grey whales, basking sharks, dive-bombing pelicans and the rare blue whale. They join the sea-lions' graceful ballet-and then encounter the gigantic whale shark.

The last of seven programmes written and presented by Glyn Worsnip.
Not to the Falklands, but to Northern Ireland, that is the posting for 480 Platoon. They are itching to test themselves against an enemy, but Falklands prowess is not in demand. Prudence and patience are the qualities they must show in long hours of road checks and foot patrols. But how well can these fighting men, fed a diet of get-up-and-go, cope with Policing duties? In Ireland no one can forget the events of 'Bloody Sunday'. And in a brief postscript to the series, Glyn Worsnip checks whether, two years later, the graduates of 480 Platoon have justified the regiment's confidence or not. He finds one of the more successful recruits back in civvy street and one of the less successful enjoying one of the most coveted postings to which any Para might aspire.
