In this filmed profile shot in North Wales, his present home, Manchester-born Joe Brown demonstrates the technique and discusses the philosophy which have made him one of the great mountaineers of the world.
'As a boy, I just happened to arrive at a crag and climbed it, and it was so exhilarating that from then on there was just no thought of doing anything else.'
'Becoming experienced boils down to sticking your neck out and getting away with it.'
'There's no doubt that sooner or later you're going to die, but I don' think I'm going to die climbing.'

starring Rock Hudson, Jane Wyman with Agnes Moorehead

All That Heaven Allows, with Jane Wyman as a lonely widow who falls in love with her gardener and becomes the target for gossip, has a lighter touch than most. A stylish and elegant film, played and directed with great conviction.
Because Ron Kirby is rejected by Cary Scott's children and society, she refuses to marry him, despite their mutual love.

John Wayne is 62. He has had a lung removed after a cancer operation but still makes cowboy films almost continuously. After 250 pictures he is hotly tipped to win his first Oscar for his performance in True Grit, released this month.
The past two years have been the most remarkable in Wayne's life. He 'licked the big C,' spoke at the Republican Convention, was mooted as a Vice Presidential running-mate for George Wallace and created a wave of controversy by his hawkish film about Vietnam, The Green Berets.
Despite this, he remains the biggest box-office draw in the world. He spoke to Iain Johnstone about his life and his films. Film extracts include: Sagebrush Trail (1933), Stagecoach (1939), The Alamo (1960), The Man who Shot Liberty Valance (1962), Eldorado (1966), The Green Berets (1968), True Grit (1969)

In the latest film of the voyage of Calypso Whales are the quarry of Cousteau and his research team. Armed with harpoons, not to kill but to tag, they follow the Finback Whale and obtain unique underwater pictures of this 20-ton monster. More enormous still and reputedly very savage are the Sperm Whales, so when Cousteau decides to tag a baby Sperm it is exciting and dangerous.

Gerald Moore talks to Bernard Levin and recalls, at 70, his long career and the great musicians with whom he has worked.
with Victoria de los Angeles, Pablo Casals, Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau, Elisabeth Schwarzkopf
Not many musicians can say that they have completely re-made their art. But what Casals has done for the playing of the cello and Segovia for the guitar, Gerald Moore has done for the art of the accompanist.
Thanks to him the accompanist now takes his rightful place as the equal of the soloist in interpreting the composer's original intention.
