(A BBC telerecording)
On a houseboat on the river a man named Rocello has been found murdered. The boat's owner is a mysterious figure, but real enough to turn up at the school where Henderson is a housemaster. Henderson himself was seen to leave the houseboat by Katherine Walters, the doctor's niece. Is it merely coincidence that she, two weeks before, had been to Venice, where Henderson had spent two years at the end of the war? And why should Henderson make such a parade of knowing and approving the Latin inscription on the wrist-watch found on the dead man?
by Michael Pertwee and Roland Pertwee.

With tonight's programme, Peter Scott makes his first appearance in Look after his world tour, and with an old friend and expert falconer, James Robertson Justice, he will introduce a programme on the Saker Falcon. Falconry is usually associated with the Middle Ages, but it stretches from before the Christian era to the present day. Nowadays, provided you can catch your falcon and train it, you can fly any bird of prey you fancy.
There was a time, however, when a bird on the wrist indicated a man's rank-the peregrine for an earl, the goshawk for a yeoman, and the sparrowhawk for a priest.
The long winged Saker Falcon, roughly the same size as the peregrine falcon, is used by Arabs for hawking such large creatures as gazelles and bustards. It has a breeding range well behind the Iron Curtain; a few pairs still breed in the remote forests of Hungary, where it is protected. Istvan Homoki-Nagy, a Hungarian naturalist, searched the Carpathian foothills and eventually found a pair of Saker Falcons breeding in the Borzsony Hills of Northern Hungary. He filmed the Sakers at the nest, the wild life surrounding them, and the adult birds catching their prey. A Hungarian falconer eventually succeeded in capturing one of the falcons, and Homoki-Nagy's film shows the training of the Saker and its eventual use as a falcon for catching prey desired by the falconer.
