Flower from the Flames
Narrated by David Attenborough
For a flower to blossom from a fire, it must be exceptional! For a single flowerhead to attract 1,000 insects, it's got to be large! When eight thieving beetles force their way into a bloom, it must be delicious! For a country to choose it as its national emblem, it has to be magnificent. This is the protea family - group of South African flowers flaunting an infinite variety of colour, shape and form. As they open, they lure a host of pollinators, from the noisy Cape sugar-bird to a tiny flightless mite ... and an unexpected nocturnal visitor, first discovered three years ago.

A Guide to Armageddon
Maybe the most important television programme ever networked in Britain (THE DAILY TELEGRAPH) A second showing for this widely acclaimed examination of the effects of nuclear weapons. Introduced by Ludovic Kennedy
The first half of the programme looks at the physical effects of a single medium-sized nuclear warhead on a large city. How effectively would various types of shelter protect us from these effects? Two couples live experimentally in fall-out shelters for ten days each.
In the coolest, most measured terms. accompanied by exceptionally skilled special effects and filmed and edited with the utmost precision, Mick Jack son's programme built a cumulative portrait of horror, whose impact might well prove more lasting than any fictionalised or dramatised version.
