Introduced by Johnny Morris and TERRY NUTKINS. In today's programme, Johnny has a dangerous task - cleaning the teeth of an American alligator, while Carson the rat, Brolly the cockatoo and some Muscovy ducks show us how they keep clean. Terry, of course, is wet again - this time he's splashing it all over the bathroom! Terry weaves some really special silken magic with Rocky the penguin as his accomplice and we have a close-up look at some silk moth caterpillars weaving their magic.

The celebrated tarmac gang are back -to a city without work in a series of five screenplays made on Merseyside. 2: Moonlighter featuring
Dixie Dean-father of four and once the proud foreman. Night work-of sorts-on the docks, a wife earning pin money and the dole on the doorstep, leave Dixie vulnerable to conflicting pressures from all sides. Not a situation to thank the rest of the boys for.
Sometimes hilarious and often gripping - but mainly a pathetic and moving evocation of a man at the end of his tether - Tom Georoeson gave a marvellous performance as Dixie.

presented by Simon Murray ex-Legionaire 1960-65
The Foreign Legion was founded 150 years ago by King Louis Philippe of France; today it contains 8,000 men from 99 countries. Around its name has grown an aura of romance and mystique, fostered by P. C. Wren 's classic novel Beau Geste , and countless feature films. For the first time the Foreign Legion has opened its doors to a television team. This unique report explores the myth and the reality of the Foreign Legion today.
