And We Went to ... Hong Kong This week Helen Oakes tells the story of the boys and girls who are abroad with their parents in the British Services in Hong Kong. In their spare time they go sailing; help the Vietnamese Boat People; take a ride on the world's newest underground railway and explore a remote island.
In this, the final programme of the series, we see what their parents in the Navy and Army do for Hong Kong, the most distant place to which children travel with the British Forces.

Meteor Crater
In Northern Arizona there is a vast hole in the desert, almost a mile across and 600 feet deep, known as Meteor Crater. It was blasted out in prehistoric times by a huge iron meteorite, and is the most perfectly preserved impact area known on Earth. Patrick Moore visits Meteor Crater, and goes down into what has been described as the oldest of all natural museums.
