A Brooklyn girl takes a luxury cruise to the tropics in the hope of finding a wealthy husband.
This was one of the last musical-comedy films in the career of the late Dick Powell. A year later he was to gain new recognition in the dramatic role of Raymond Chandler 's famous detective Philip Marlowe in the film Fareivell My Lovely. No American musical of the period seems complete without Mary Martin , who is still at the top of the musicat-comedy tree-or, indeed, Betty Hutton. And Rudy Vallee , the famous crooner and heart-throb of the 1930s, steps out of his singing shoes to play the mean-minded millionaire Alfred Monroe.

One of the difficulties surrounding tonight's subject is: what is a weed? Percy Thrower describes it as 'a plant growing in the wrong place.' In some cases this is a matter of taste, and although there may be those gardeners who derive an aesthetic pleasure from large areas of chickweed, most of us will appreciate Percy's hints on the destruction of weeds.

2: SAN DIEGO, CALIFORNIA
There are more animals on show in San Diego than anywhere else in the world. It is a rich zoo, yet half of its visitors do not pay an entrance fee. It is in an area that used to be semi-desert, yet it is famous for its tropical vegetation.
Last week's programme looked largely at the entertainment side of the zoo's activities. But there are other aspects of the zoo's work which command attention.
There are only two zoos in the world outside Australia where you can see Koala Bears, and San Diego is one of them. They have to have special food; this is grown in the zoo. They are difficult to keep in captivity. The San Diego Koalas not only thrive but also breed there. And the zoo has had equal success with many other rarities like the Pygmy Chimpanzees, the Proboscis Monkey from Borneo whose remarkable nose becomes longer with age until it reaches well below its chin, the Russed Lemur from Madagascar, and a pair of rare marsupials-Tasmanian Devils.

- Comte de Restaud:
James Cameron 's own series of documentary films
When God created Heaven and Earth he then produced the State of Texas, and in it-Houston: this rich place with its feet buried in the oil below and its hands now groping among the stars
Tonight James Cameron visits Houston, the multi-million-dollar headquarters of America's Manned Space programme, and travels the long trail to their science-fiction launch pad on the Florida coast. As each multi-million-dollar step takes the technologists nearer to their goal the magic disappears, the wonders become commonplace. In the past visitors have always asked How Big? How Far? How Much? ...
NOBODY EVER ASKS WHY
In this remarkable film Cameron, unlike any other reporter who has visited this awe-inspiring place, does ask Why-and he asks it frequently. The answers are disturbing.
