Up to the Giant Car Wash
The first of three programmes with Bill Oddie in Papua New Guinea. In his search for the fabulous birds of paradise and bower-birds Bill struggles up a mountain - drenched in tropical rain. He looks for a twelve-wired bird of paradise, and bower-birds that plant gardens and collect gun cartridges, and even one that dances round a maypole with a golden crown on its head! Can this really be true?
Or is it just another stunt by the Goodies?

The second of five dramatic journeys in people's lives with Desmond Wilcox Don Clark , a probation officer, might be dead and should be crippled. His life was saved by micro-surgery. The operation, to remove a spinal tumour, left him with a weakened leg - and a determination to do something for the hospital that had saved his life. He started running marathons for charity and raised E10,000 on his first attempt. Then he took on the biggest challenge of his life - the World Championship Triathlon. To finish, Don - who smokes 30 cigarettes a day and likes to drink beer with his friends - had to swim 2 miles in the sea, cycle 75 miles through mountains and run 20 miles - all non-stop in the fierce Mediterranean heat.
Even professional athletes are daunted by the Triathlon, some have been killed by it. It looked as if it might kill Don Clark - but he was determined to finish and survive.
