A four-part series written by Dennis Potter.
3: Castles and catwalks and crystal flutes. Success has put a sheen on lovely, pliable Blackeyes. But grimmer shapes are reflected in the high gloss. A lonely death in cold water still beckons to her, and the sick rage of an obsessive cop is no recompense for such a fate. The young man who loves
Blackeyes is still trying to get into the story of her life. If he can, his shy adoration might yet save her. But is he all he seems to be....?

A series of films from all over the world about our astonishing planet and the people who live on it

Film, shown for the first time in colour, of the uproarious balloon race organised in 1965 by the BBC's Travel and Exploration Unit in which ten passenger-carrying balloons took to the air from a field near the Oxfordshire village of Stanton Harcourt and landed in various parts of the Cotswolds.

"(Television's) craziest piece of reportage... a wonderful spectacular feature bringing something excitingly different to the home screen... the compilation of the story, from a mass of mad or funny incidents as the nine competitors tried to follow a fox balloon was a masterpiece" (Daily Telegraph)
Written and produced by Brian Branston
