A film series introduced by Bernard Venables
Leslie Brewer float fishing for chub on a quiet reach of the River Avon in Hampshire.
From the quiet of Bernard Venables's own local river - the Hampshire Avon -
comes, with the help of a guest fisherman, another of angling's controversies. Why is the chub, that greedy grabber of every kind of food, watchful and suspicious of the baited hook? And why, since the cautious chub gives such sport, involving the angler in so many delicate techniques, should it often be held in contempt - especially by fly fishermen?
Watch how Leslie Brewer, who was a trout and salmon game fisherman, lures with float tackle the canny chub from the tree roots under the gliding, gin-clear waters - observed and refereed by Bernard Venables.

Blackmailed by a vicious young woman, he builds up a successful practice in cosmetic surgery; but then the woman uses one of the instruments for a more sinister purpose...

This week and every week television in this country brings us the stories and issues that concern us-the argument, the evidence, the examination. We listen and we watch-sometimes we switch off or over-and then we make up our minds. But nearly all the coverage is seen through our eyes. Elsewhere in Europe the same process goes on-but there the view may be quite different.
