This was the first of a series of three programmes about the beef business.
Trevor Philpott reports on The Perfect Beast inere is no business more full of jronic contradiction than the raismg of cattle. It is at once the most glamorous and the most horrific of all the forms of farming. The cowboy is a folk-hero from Stockholm to Tokyo. The slaughterman is a figure of the shadows, with a social standing about equal to that of the public executioner. The Perfect Beast is about the modern cattleman, in Britain and in the Big Country of the USA. Some deal in a few dozen prize animals, some in hundreds of thousands. No other industry or agricultural enterprise is so wrapped m romance as the cattle business.

A series of nine documentary films on topical issues.
7: Traitors to Hitler
A unique film on the 35th anniversary of Claus von Stauffenberg's attempt to kill Hitter.
The bomb plot to blow Adolf Hitler to pieces as he studied his campaigns in the map-room of the Wolf's Lair on 20 July 1944 failed. The conspirators were rounded up, put on trial, and hanged.
To savour his revenge at leisure, Hitler ordered the trials and death-throes of his enemies to be filmed. Four hours of Hitler's film has finally been tracked down. From it emerges a unique and bizarre parody of justice, as the traitors to the Third Reich are hounded to their death-slow-hanging on piano wire. Hitler's avenging Prosecutor is Roland Freisler ; a perverted star in a sadistic screen role that he knew would please the Führer, as he watched these pictures in his cinema in the Wolf's Lair.
