Ambush at Masai Mara
Narrated by David Attenborough
... the wildebeeste are coming! The hunt is on - a time of plenty for the lions of Musiara marsh. Nothing quite matches the awe-some spectacle of the wildebeest migration. The vast herds cross Kenya's fast-flowing Mara River and run the gauntlet of the waiting marsh lions. From dawn to dusk. the programme follows the dramatic part lion and wildebeest play in Africa's greatest wildlife show.

The last of six programmes With the French Resistance
Towards the end of the Second World War the RAF Film Unit decided to make a feature length film about their part in supplying the French Resistance with arms and explosives for use against the occupying Germans. When they came to cast their film they chose a young man and woman, Harry Ree and Jacqueline Nearne , who had actually been parachuted into occupied France during the war to teach the Resistance how to make the best use of the supplies dropped by the RAF.
Now nearly 40 years after the war, with the help of the RAF's film, REE and NEARNE recall their lives with the French Resistance.

First shown in the Forty Minutes series
Two thousand 18-year-olds are about to enter Liverpool University. They stand on the threshold of adulthood and an adventure that is exhilarating, daunting, confusing, stimulating and exciting. There is the meeting of minds, the stimulus of study, parties, student fairs and initiation rites. It is a particularly taxing time for Gillian Wake , who is blind.
Excellent impressionistic study

A personal view by Kenneth Clark

In this programme Kenneth Clark reflects on the nature of 18th-century music, the music of Bach, Handel, Haydn and Mozart, and on the way that some of its qualities -the melodious flow, the complex symmetry-are reflected in the best of the rococo architecture. the pilgrimage churches and palaces of Bavaria.

from Dalemain, Cumbria, with Geoff Hamilton and Clay Jones
Most people find one garden enough but not Sylvia McCosh. Her two colourful gardens at Hunt-field in Scotland and Dalemain, with its Elizabethan oranges, are a full-time job. But because the gardens are in such different areas they offer a unique opportunity of looking at the effects of altitude, rainfall and soil type on plant growth.
