Storyline

It is the twelfth birthday of Petra the dog, and John, Peter and Lesley (and Petra) are surrounded by the cards and presents that viewers have sent in. They show archive film of notable events from her life: her first appearance as a puppy, the birth of her own puppies, her modelling for a bronze statue. John presents a film from Great Torrington in Devon where they celebrated Bonfire Night a week early by building and then burning a huge wooden ship. John, Peter and Lesley demonstrate the work that goes on behind the scenes in a TV studio when a live programme is produced: John has a ride on a lorry-mounted camera crane; Peter talks about the lighting controls, the director and vision mixer and the sound desk; Lesley describes the people who work on the studio floor - the cameramen, boom operators and floor manager.
