Ten programmes in which some of Britain's finest helmsmen show how dinghy
sailors and yachtsmen can get more pleasure from their sport.

More and more sailors are being attracted by the speed and spaciousness of catamarans and trimarans. Modern multihulls also offer a great deal of scope for anyone with an inventive turn of mind, and once people go over to multihulls they tend to stay with them. The various classes are explained in this programme, while for the enthusiast there are expert sailing technique and design comments.

A film series about animals by Eugen Schuhmacher
Commentary by Peter Scott

The biggest of the United States, a land of few roads and railways, Alaska is almost unspoilt by man. But even there rare animals like the Pacific walrus have to be protected; even there the great herds of caribou, the North American reindeer which are now so numerous, may be facing a new danger.

starring Brian Rix
and Dora Bryan, Leo Franklyn, Irene Handl, Ronald Shiner
with Liz Fraser, John Slater, Reginald Beckwith, Robertson Hare

When gormless Bertie Skidmore gets married it comes as something of a shock to find the parrot he gets as a wedding present is a reincarnation of his wife's first husband.
As well as Brian Rix, a positive galaxy of British comic talent appears in this film, Kynaston Reeves and John Le Mesurier are featured in a riotously illogical courtroom scene with Reeves as a deaf J.P. who confuses the witnesses and testimony of two cases in a manner almost worthy of N F. Simpson. Ronald Shiner makes a 'guest disappearance' as Dora Bryan's first husband who meets a sticky end early on in the plot, but turns up later in the guise of a parrot.

The Great Stars of yesterday and today
[Starring] Spencer Tracy, Katharine Hepburn
with Fay Bainter, Reginald Owen, William Bendix

A sportswriter and a gossip columnist find their public and private lives incompatible.
Both Spencer Tracy and Katharine Hepburn made their mark on Hollywood in the early 1930s, and both quickly added Academy Awards to their laurels. Together they formed a perfect screen partnership which was to last through a number of highly successful movies-State of the Union, Adam's Rib, Pat and Mike, and so on. Tonight's film is directed by George Stevens who had been responsible for two of Hepburn's earlier successes-Alice Adams and Quality Street-and had a reputation for lively comedies.

Michael Hordern stars in Jonathan Miller's version of Whistle and I'll Come to You, that famous grisly chiller by the Victorian academic M.R. James. The setting is the windy Norfolk coast in winter, and the story hinges on the finding of a mysterious whistle buried in the sand. Hordern is backed by Ambrose Coghill (the Colonel), George Woodbridge (the hotel proprietor), Nora Gordon (the proprietress), and Freda Dowie (the maid); Miller himself produces. Judging by press reactions after the original showing, this team succeeds admirably in its flesh-creeping task:
"...splendidly sensitive and atmospheric adaptation." (The Times)
"The last few moments of terror were as powerful as anything Hitchcock did." (Maurice Wiggin, Sunday Times)
"Jonathan Miller's adaptation... made me jolly glad I had someone to go to bed with." (Peter Black, Daily Mail)
