Sir Ronald Ramsgate:
with Geoffrey Smith Fuchsias
The rich colours of the fuchsia perfectly bridge the gap between summer and autumn, and it looks equally at home in large gardens or small. To achieve a profusion of flowers, Geoffrey Smith shows how to look after hardy fuchsias in the garden and how to take cuttings to fill hanging baskets, tubs and window boxes.

A Forty Minutes documentary film.
Since the birth of advertising, animals have sold objects. A winsome wide-eyed puppy sitting by a phonograph sold gramophone records. A shaggy dog called Duke is immemorially associated with a brand of paint. Pretty cats lick their whiskers on our screens just long enough for advertisers to get their messages across.
This film looks at a cottage industry - at the homes and owners who supply and train animal celebrities for gala openings, for fetes, television and films.

One of the all-time great comic animal stories. (DAILY MIRROR) Cheerful documentary.... most rewarding. (DAILY MAIL)
A view of world history in 13 parts by JOHN ROBERTS 1: Dangerous Gifts
Western civilisation changed the world. It created the global civilisation we take for granted - the only worldwide civilisation there has ever been.
In tonight's programme historian John Roberts , until recently Vice-
Chancellor of Southampton University, examines the continuingimpact of the West. 'Everywhere life has been transformed by the dangerous gifts of the West.' He goes to China, where a 1 000 million Chinese are formally ruled in the name of a German intellectual - Karl Marx ; Japan, a capitalist, industrial superpower, and examines how superficial is the appearance of 'westernisation'; and India, where he sees western forces operating far stronger than anything left by its legacy of imperialism.
In the United Nations, where the cold-war 'West' is most frequently under attack, he sees, paradoxically, the presitige of western ideas and institutions.
'I believe that all the important master principles and myths at work in the world today derive from the West.'
