Monsters! Mysteries or Myths? Narrated by DEREK JONES
Have you met -' Sasquatch,' ' Nessie ' or ' Yeti '? These ' things ' have one thing in common - each is a legendary monster but with apparently unique identity.
From the American North-west to the Scottish Highlands and on to the Himalayas, both lay enthusiasts and cool experts claim to have seen or heard uncatalogued animal monsters. Scientists oscillate between energetic scepticism and suspended disbelief; but for people who claim to have actually seen these monsters they're definitely not mythical-though they're certainly mysterious. Do you believe in monsters?

Coming Out in 39 During the summer months in the years before the last war, the daughters of the very best families were driven to Buckingham Palace to be presented at Court.

And after 1939 mothers never again presented their daughters at Court in the evening. Catherine Ormsby-Gore , Dinah Brand and Christian Grant were all driven to Buckingham Palace to be presented that summer before the war. And they remember the fun and formality of a first London Season.

April, 1945 - in the bunker in the garden of the Berlin Chancellery, the Russian shelling can be heard ominously near. Those surrounding Hitler try desperately to keep their leader in ignorance of the situation while the Fuehrer himself deploys largely non-existent armies and listens to the optimistic' prophecies of his astrologer.
