Keeper of the Wild
Mike Tomkies , successful reporter, biographer of Hollywood stars, became tired of the luxury flat, fast car, and commuting between four capitals. Ten years ago he took off for Canada to seek peace and solitude in the wilds. Today he lives alone and inaccessibly on a remote Scottish loch. Apart from a weekly boat trip to collect essentials and mail, he sees no human being from September to May.
This is not the story of a drop-out but of a writer and naturalist, adjusting to loneliness and danger, who studies plant and animal life around him to preserve their natural environment.
Although alone, he still hopes that one day a woman will appear at the door of his croft to share his life. An ex-dancer, Cordon Bleu cook, who likes gardening, with a degree in biology or veterinary science would do! '

The Greatest Advance Since the Wheel?
Sixty years ago a Dutch scientist discovered a phenomenon that overturned the electrical rule book. By cooling certain metals to incredibly low temperatures he found they could continue to carry an electric current for ever, even when the power supply was switched off. Today, developments of these metals - called superconductors - have led to trains that fly, magnets that could depollute rivers and machines that promise cheaper power. One scientist has described superconductivity as 'beyond question the greatest technological innovation since the discovery of the wheel.'
So what lies behind all the excitement, and why, if superconductivity is so important, are we still waiting for the big breakthrough? Narrator FRANK GILLARD
