Old Chinese proverb says: 'He who mixes Monkey business with pleasure liable to end up making people laugh.' As in the bizarre adventures of Tripitaka and his boon companions Monkey, Pigsy and Sandy.
Or how they met a king who knew he could obtain eternal youth by eating Tripitaka.

Presented by Angela Rippon who each week introduces us to the people, places and wildlife that make life in the country so appealing.
Two traditional delicacies of the countryside are venison and trout - both culled from the wild to grace the table. Today the game in our forests and lakes is managed by experts who keep the numbers finely balanced.
Phit Drabble tracks down deer in Cannock Chase and Gordon Beningfield goes fishing for trout in a reservoir. Back in the studio, with conservationist Elizabeth Eyden , they consider the implications of deer culling - and ask whether fishing is fair game.

The heroic story of the Tyneside-built warship HMS Kelly and her famous captain. Lord Louis Mountbatten, was celebrated in drama and song when Alan Price, accompanied by his own band and music director, got together with local performers in his home town of Jarrow during the Queen's Jubilee visit to Tyneside in July 1977.
This filim, first shown in February 1978, observes the preparations for the show and explores the reasons why the story of HMS Kelly remains a legend on Tyneside.
'It brought back memories both sad and warm - they were rough times but unforgettable. In the jaundiced 70s it's a rare event to and a pop composer stirring patriotic feelings, but I bet there won't be a dry eye in many houses tomorrow evening.' The late Lord Louis Mountbatten in an interview with the Daily Express.
