Reflections on a Journey
BRIAN MORRIS visits Whithorn, Hex-ham Abbey and the Galilee Chapel of Durham Cathedral.
The first of four programmes in which a traveller speaks of his personal response to some places of Christian significance.
Professor Morris's journey takes him to some of the sites associated with the earliest days of Christianity in these islands, but he reflects on them as places which speak to a 20th-century man about his own faith and his own life.

Captain Cousteau voyages in Calypso to the Antarctic
Beneath the Frozen World
How do you film Antarctic wildlife above and below the freezing sea when your ship is icebound? As a camera platform, an iceberg proves too unstable and dangerous, and the helicopter is too noisy and frightens the animals, so Cousteau tries a risky but romantic hot air balloon.
To descend, his men finally succeed by diving through seal holes in the ice, and there film the abundant and curious creatures in the richest sea in the world.
Narrated by JACQUES COUSTEAU and HUGH FALKUS
