A film portrait of three markets in the New Forest.... places of combat, where vendor and buyer can exercise their skills of persuasion, bluff and guile to win that elusive bargain.
Dennis Skillicorn meets the yellow wellie sailors at the annual Beaulieu Boat
Jumble, the canny farmers and commoners at the New Forest pony sales and the thrifty housewives at
Ringwood street market.
All fighting the good fight.... and all having a good time doing it.

The Man Who Loves Frogs Mike Tyler is a 'froggo' - a passion that began in a British pond and then embraced the frogs of the world. Now he courts them in the Australian bush where there's a greater variety than in the whole of Europe and North America combined. There are frogs that burrow and climb, swim or bury themselves alive for years. Among the forest frogs, desert frogs and frogs of hot springs, mountain and shore he still finds frogs unknown to science. Most remarkable of all - and a creature people should all love for its potential benefit to health - is the extraordinary frog that breeds its babies in its stomach and gives birth to them through its mouth.

by MUSTAPHA MATURA based on The Playboy of the Western World by J. M. SYNGE Introduced by MUSTAPHA MATURA starring
Peggy Ford runs a rum bar for her father Mikey in Mayaro, a small fishing village on the south-east coast of Trinidad. Mayaro is, to put it mildly, off the beaten track and if you were to say that nothing ever happens there you might, with reason, be accused of exaggeration. Imagine, therefore, if you will, the effect on all concerned when a handsome young stranger appears and insists that he has just murdered his father.
