5 : But Electrons aren't Coloured! So far Geoffrey Gouriet , Chief Engineer, BBC Research and Development, has shown us that electric signals can easily ' see' light and shade; but how much more difficult it must be to reproduce the subtleties of colour.
He now demonstrates how electric signals can measure and transmit accurate colour pictures.
(Lecture 6: Friday, 6.30 pm)
The first of six films that show the beautiful intertwinings of the living things on our varied earth. The Living River
Eel, shrew, caddis, vole, pike, dipper, trout -not just a random mixture of animals but an integrated community intricately linked to the living river.
Filmed underwater, a dipper is a bird of silver that swims with its wings; a caddis-fly larva builds a web like a spider to catch food. Each creature has its own ways, its own delicate niche, and yet through the seasons they all exist together in an ever-changing balance that is only too easy for us to topple.

People with unusual enthusiasms. Man of Letters
For more than 50 years this man has been intrigued by the written word: not the sense of it, but what lies behind the sense, what sort of person the writer really is. Through FRANCIS FIELD'S eyes the writing of the famous is fascinating-especially when the celebrities are anonymous!

Flu is already taking its annual toll. In 1918 it killed 150,000 people; in 1973 it will kill thousands more.
The dangers from epidemics in this country are more serious than we like to think. Britain is under siege. Holiday makers returning from abroad are introducing typhoid, malaria, smallpox. At home we are annually producing 10,000 cases of dysentery and 12,000 of infective jaundice. One in three chickens is infected with food poisoning germs and a quarter of all meat is soiled with animal excreta.
So just how safe are we? Narrator PAUL VAUGHAN
