1. “Paddington in the hot seat”. Paddington has an audience ticket for the Quiz Show “Sage of Britain”.

The viewers jam the switchboard and Paddington is announced “Sage of Britain”. - 2. “Paddington’s puzzle”. Paddington makes a jigsaw puzzle as a present for Mr Gruber from a “priceless” old painting discarded by Mr Curry, some plywood and glue. - 3. “Paddington takes a cut”. Paddington reads “Clippings from my Hedgerow” and dreams he is pruning Mr Currys’ shrub into a peacock shape. Disaster strikes when he snips it leg off! However, awakes before discovery by Mr Curry!
