Rock climbers call the sun-baked walls of California's Yosemite Valley vertical desert; vast slabs of rock soar up from the valley floor shimmering in the desert heat. Of all the rock faces El Capitan is the most awe-inspiring. Its summit overhangs the valley floor 3,000 feet below. This award-winning film follows the three days that three climbers spent perilously ascending the rock face. It is tense and exciting.

Meteors, or shooting stars, space debris shed by comets travelling round the sun, can produce brilliant displays and the Perseids, seen each year between 27 July and 17 August, are unusually spectacular. They are of special interest during the early 1980s, because the comet associated with them - Swift-Tuttle - is due back having been unobserved for 120 years.
Patrick Moore talks to John Mason , who led an expedition to France to study the Perseids, and looks forward to the return of Halley's Comet, which also is associated with meteor showers.
