This film looks at life today in one of the last remaining dukedoms of Britain.
Twenty-four years ago Andrew Robert Buxton Cavendish inherited the title Duke of Devonshire and set himself the formidable task of preserving the seat at Chatsworth in a style evolved through four centuries by one of the richest families in Britain.
Outwardly, the estate is little changed, a monument to great thinking and to eccentricity, but industrial towns have crept up the other side of surrounding hills and Chatsworth itself is by no means an island where time stands still.

William Woollard treks north to report on Canada's battle to open up its frozen arctic wastes and recently discovered oil and mineral deposits.
Take photos to see what you look like from 500 miles up. Fly a hovercraft over a frozen sea. Squeeze oil from sand. Build the world's most powerful communications satellite. If all that's not too difficult why not plant a centrally heated town on ice, without it melting under you. Tricky? Canada's done it. See how and why in this film report from the world's second largest country.
