Feathers with Bird Attached Second of three programmes with Bill Oddie in Papua New Guinea.
Bill continues his search higher into the mountains where rhododendrons and kangaroos live up trees. The birds of paradise have incredibly long head and tail feathers and there's one that's coloured like lemon meringue pie. He finds a parrot-like vulture, and a bower-bird that decorates its bower with red and blue berries. And, even more amazing, some of his photos actually came out!

Luther Vandross is undoubtedly one of the most exciting singer/songwriters to emerge in the 1980s and four of his previous LPs have sold a million.
This concert was recorded last year during a sell-out week at Wembley Arena, London.

A series of eightprogrammes 5: Leopard Tracks by the Dead Sea
Leopards by the Dead Sea in Israel is no joke! Someone obviously thought it was, when they added a PS to a notice warning about leopards: 'Why not "Danger - polar bears?"' The leopard was long thought to be extinct in the region of Judea until one, driven by hunger, entered a kibbutz at En Gedi. Sadly, it was shot. Ever since that encounter, Israeli zoologist, Giora Ilany has been obsessed with finding out everything about these secretive big cats. This film is an account of Ilany's quest. Photographed and directed by RUDOLF LAMMERS
