Six programmes with Tony Soper 5: Partnerships
Nature is not always red in tooth and claw, full of strife and competition. Some animals have got together to become messmates. Delicate sea anemones and sponges are the professional partners of hermit crabs. Reef fishes cannot keep healthy without the help of special laundrymen. Down on the farm, even cows need a bellyfull of friendly microbes, because without them they would starve.
TONY SOPER travels from Plymouth Hoe to Africa and the Seychelles in search of pals and partners.

Six love stories about six very different couples.
1: Claire and Desmond Agony aunt Claire Rayner has been married for 26 years. Desmond is a failed actor who wants to be a painter-a personality in his own right. Currently he manages Claire's affairs. He's a gentle, affable man. Shy and retiring. Almost the exact opposite of his bouncing, ebullient wife. But sometimes the roles are reversed. When he gets his first exhibition at London's Barbican Centre, the confident Claire becomes a bag of nerves. Friends say they have 'the perfect marriage'. They are not so sure. 'I think perhaps we are too close; that we rely on each other too much,' says Claire. 'And we're always afraid that something will come along to spoil it.'
