The Undersea World of Jacques Cousteau
How do you persuade an irate hippo to pose for your underwater cameras? On an inland expedition to study the wildlife of Africa's internal shorelines, Cousteau tries several methods. A plastic life-sized hippo called ' Lolita,' concealing two divers, proves hilarious but unsuccessful; two remote-controlled cameras are smashed by a charging hippo. There is nothing left but to dive with the hippos.

Francis Poulenc , one of the French composers in the group known as Les Six, died ten years ago. His music displays two aspects of his character: the charmer of 1920s Paris and the serious side of his later choral works. His life and music are recalled by baritone Pierre Bernac with Georges Auric and Darius Milhaud , two survivors of the group. The film was shot in and around Poulenc's Loire home and in the Dordogne.
Georgina Parkinson dances the Adagietto from Les Biches; excerpts from Poulenc's work are played by JACQUES FÉVRIER (piano), ROBERT CASIER (oboe) and GERARD FAISANDIER (bassoon). STEPHEN VARCOE (baritone) and JONATHAN ALDER (piano), JENNIFER SMITH (soprano) and JOHN FRASER (piano) take part in a Master Class.
