Geese Are Only Human with Konrad Lorenz
A film about an extraordinary man and the geese that thought he was one of them
Narrated by David Attenborough For 50 years Lorenz has been demonstrating amazing parallels between the behaviour of geese and men. His ideas have inspired many biologists, caused others to regard him as a heretic, and, through such books as King Solomon's Ring, set up such a wave of public interest in animal behaviour that ' ethology' has become a smart word to use.
As Lorenz approaches 70 and retirement, this film shows his continuing work with a team of helpers - all followed by families of goslings convinced that they are under the wing of a real goose ...

One of a series of films featuring the world's leading orchestras
The Chicago Symphony Orchestra conductor Sir Georg Solti
The Chicago Symphony Orchestra was founded in 1891 by the German-born musician Theodore Thomas and at one time enjoyed the reputation of being ' the best provincial orchestra in the world.' GEORG SOLTI became its permanent conductor in 1969 and in 1971 the orchestra left the United States for the first time to a tumultuous European reception, confirming what Chicago already knew-here was a great orchestra. The music extracts include
Mahler Das Lied von der Erde (With YVONNE MINTON)
Beethoven Symphony No 9 Mozart Symphony No 25 Strauss Don Juan
Wagner Prelude: Die Meister-singer
An admirable picture setting the orchestra vividly in its city of rich and poor extremes (DAILY TELEGRAPH) Solti is as ever compulsively viewable, both on the podium and as a talker
Film editor DAVID NADEN Producer IAN ENGELMANN
Co-production by BBCtv and RM Productions, Munich
A film about the North East's best-known cartoon character, his creator Reg Smythe , and the town of Hartlepool where they both come from.
Andy Capp first appeared in the Daily Mirror in 1957: he is now syndicated in 42 countries and in 13 different languages. Despite Andy's fame, Reg Smythe firmly resists any attempts to analyse him -' I never try to explain Andy Capp or make excuses for him: he and I look at life from the same point of view - we come from the same environment.' Narrated by JOE MELIA
