From the Camargue to Cornwall
First of three programmes. When Robin Hanbury -
Tenison wanted two new horses for his Cornish farm, a simple visit to the market was not enough. His whole life has been an adventure and here was an opportunity to fulfil a dream.
With his wife Louella, he journeyed to the Camargue in France and bought two of the white horses for which the area is famous. It never occurred to them to transport them home. Instead they rode Tiki and Thibert all the way to Cornwall.

with Joan Blondell In this delightful
Hollywood movie, Bing is cast to type as a crooning taxi-driver, who inadvertently becomes the 'owner' of a baby left in his cab by a young mother. Joan Blondell co-stars as a hotel telephonist in love with the carefree
Crosby. A musical romance full of good humour, tuneful songs and - of course - a happy end.
Screenplay by WILLIAM CONSELMAN Based on a story by DAVID BUTLER and HERBERT POLESIE

Chris Baines , walking near his home in Stourbridge, visits the oases of green space, many now threatened by development, which have traditionally provided recreation for thousands of industrial workers.

A Portrait of the Earth by DAVID ATTENBOROUGH
A series of 12 programmes 6: The Baking Desert
The hottest and driest places on earth are home to some amazing animals, plants and desert-living people.
Mammals become active at night - the fennec fox, desert wolf, and strange golden mole. Reptiles such as the venomous gila monster hunt in the early morning. By midday all animals have sought shade. But plants must endure the heat.
In the Mojave desert David Attenborough finds a plant that has been growing there for more than 10,000 years. When rain eventually falls, dead plants move and disperse their seeds; flowers put on a dazzling display. Music by ELIZABETH PARKER
