The first in a film trilogy about the Channel Islands.

Introduced by Jeffery Boswall
The mild southern climate of the isles, which brings on the early produce for export and the influx of tourists, also means a fauna and flora different from Britain's. Rare wild orchids, moths like the Jersey Tiger, unusual plovers and warblers, and the coveted ormer - a giant limpet - are among the specialities.
The islands too are a special home for myriads of seabirds, and boast one of the newest gannetries in Europe and the largest stormy petrel assembly in the world. A naturalist in the Channel Islands can still get away from it all; the green off-lying islets are a sanctuary for bird-watchers as well as birds.

Sex by the Seaside
Review takes a trip round the sexual beargarden depicted on English seaside postcards.

The Monster with Sex Appeal
Dave Prowse is 6ft 7in and 20 stone, ex-British weightlifting champion and an aspiring Mr Universe. He once coveted the title 'The Perfect Man' but found himself cast as The Perfect Monster. Review takes a look at the man and the monster.

Most people know Mikis Theodorakis as composer of the music for such films as Z and Zorba the Greek. But he is also Greece's foremost popular songwriter. In this programme the composer accompanies Antonis Caloyanis as he sings Theodorakis's setting of a poem of exile by Namos Elefteriou - 'My Bat.'

Intelligence System
An elderly intelligence agent and his shadow; cafes, street corners, windy beaches. There's a girl somewhere. Is it his memory, or his imagination?
From the story by Anthony Paul
With Ambrose Coghill, Norman Brown, Lizzie Spender.
