Under the scorching summer sun of Shepherd's
Bush Green Terry has no time to envy holiday-makers basking beside the seaside in their deckchairs while the day job keeps him incarcerated live in the Television Theatre.
Thought to be a 'mysterious bird' - 'the very spirit of good luck' - the Kingfisher has its secrets revealed in this remarkable and beautifully shot film.
From the first fragile moments of life in the underground chamber to the blue dart above the stream, the sheer brilliance of this spear fisherman is shown to be the true spectacle of Tennyson's 'secret splendour of the brook'.

The first in a new series of six film documentaries about People of today. Lost in Space
In February 1984, high in space, two satellites were launched from the Shuttle Challenger - and lost.
It was an expensive mistake. Tonight's film is a unique account of what went on behind the scenes, at NASA and in space, during a desperate rescue - Mission
51A - a rescue that seemed to be going well until Mission Control heard the fateful words 'Houston - Discovery, we have a problem'. Faces drain, Managers huddle in clamouring groups, insurers gaze on helplessly, secretaries cry, while the Flight Director puts on a brave smile and hopes he has resourceful astronauts. NASA launched the satellite in a blaze of new technology, but when all went wrong it was two men and a spanner who had to go to the rescue.
