BRIAN MOORE and BETTE AMOR.
Jennie and Herbie Watson are dog obedience trainers. They took 13 delinquent dogs, and their owners, into a Manchester park for a long weekend.

They all had to be cured, or else ...

An Andalucian Journey Gypsies and Flamenco
The flamenco of southern
Spain is more than music and much more than an exhilarating dance for the tourists. It's the soul of a culture, and its roots go back to the 15th century when gypsy travellers made their way via Asia and North Africa to Spain. Today the real flamenco is kept alive by the gypsy families of Andalucia. Through their private family rituals, baptisms, marriages and fiestas, the new generation of Andalucian gypsies learns flamenco from its elders, the great solo cantores and the most powerful and accomplished dancers of flamenco in the world. Today the families are no longer travellers - they are integrated, socially and economically, with the population. But they keep alive their traditions with pride, and in this film Arena travels to meet them and to see and hear the real flamenco.
Tonight the journey from Seville to Utrera

The last word on world events analysed by Peter Snow and Donald MacCormick
A monk and his novice seek shelter at an isolated mountain inn. Also trapped for the night are a company of travellers whose coach has broken down. Just as they are sitting down to dinner, the innkeeper's wife sends for the monk. Her confession that she and her husband are in the habit of murdering their guests puts the monk into a pretty quandary. Fernandel gives a delightfully over-the-top performance as the desperate monk in Claude Autrant -Lara's macabre farce.
