Quietly in Switzerland

Narrated by David Attenborough
To the early American pioneers, the larger predatory animals - cougar, wolf and bear-were part of the threatening face of the wilderness which surrounded them.
Shot and harassed wherever they were encountered, their numbers dwindled as the wild was opened up for settlement.
This spectacular film explores the relationship of predators and their prey, showing how both benefit from the struggle for survival.
Outstanding footage shot in 25 states follows the trail of hunters and prey, from the grizzlies and bald eagles of Alaska, where spawning salmon provide a bumper food harvest, to the southern marshes of Texas and Louisiana where red wolves and white-tailed deer seek sanctuary in an environment into which man has not yet intruded.

Waders in Winter
At high tide this little bay on the south coast is lashed by cold grey waves. But it has another mood.
As the waters recede a whole new world of plants and animals is revealed - brent geese which have flown hundreds of miles to winter in the bay, little sanderlings which run like clockwork toys along the water's edge, cord-grass which didn't even exist 100 years ago and now covers acres of mudflats, slipper limpets which change sex as they grow older, and clumps of gorse on the shore line, golden with blossom even in the short days of winter.
Today, naturalists Chris Mead and David Streeter look at the bay in both its moods.

A portrait of The Queen's summer Jubilee tour.
As the commentators remarked at the time, one really striking feature of this year's Jubilee festival was the spontaneous, almost overwhelming, response by the British people themselves. In villages, towns and cities all over the country they turned out in thousands to welcome the royal visitors. Camera teams from BBCtv News covered dozens of receptions, street parties and displays; this is a pictorial impression of the Jubilee summer when THE QUEEN and her subjects together celebrated a 25-year partnership.

The Viewer's View
Every day, in pubs, on buses and at work, people talk about last night's programmes. What do you think about TV? The question is deceivingly simple. What do you switch on, or off? What are your favourite programmes, who are your favourite people? What is your first memory?
Thanks for the Memory is based on people's views of television and personal memories from the last 25 years, and illustrated from the BBC's archives.
Producer COLIN STRONG
This is an edited version of the programme first shown in July.
Introduced by James Cameron
Forty years ago tonight you almost certainly wouldn't have been sitting down to an evening of television shows for Christmas. But you might have been looking forward to an evening of home cinema - and just possibly you might even have been filming yourself a record of your own Christmas at home. Quite a few people did and their home-movies can make the Christmases of the 20s and 30s live again today, with all their tin-plate toys, uncles and aunts, seasonable snowfalls and home-made plum puddings.
Christmas Past is followed next Sunday by the first episode of a 13-part weekly series called Caught in Time which is devoted to the work of those pre-war amateur film enthusiasts.
