The umbrella-like thorny Acacia tree is home, larder, food, shade and hunting-ground for a wealth of African creatures. The long struggle from seedling to thorn bush and to full maturity over more than a century is a story of striving for space, of coping with threats of drought and fire, and how the interaction of the thorn tree with animals like the elephant, the giraffe and even a tiny beetle is reshaping the African bush.

A Portrait of the Earth by DAVID ATTENBOROUGH
A series of 12 programmes 10: Worlds Apart
Swaying palms, brilliant white beaches set in clear blue seas - everyone's idea of a typical island paradise. But islands are isolated worlds, refuges for ancient species, the birthplace of new ones, where life can be gruelling.
On one such place David Atten borough steps back into the past as the world's largest lizard-the komodo dragon-goes hunting. In the Indian Ocean he discovers an island where 150,000 giant tortoises find survival a pressing problem. On Hawaii, the lush tropical forests contain a unique group of birds, the honey-creepers, and among them - caterpillar that catches flies.
Across the Pacific, the strange rat-like kiwi roams the forests of New Zealand where DAVID ATTENBOROUGH encounters another curiosity, a giant flightless parrot.
These and other native islanders are facing an increasing threat -from an animal menagerie introduced by man.

A Rough Justice report
After seven years in maximum security prisons, serving a life sentence for murder, Jock Russell was suddenly released last December. The Court of Appeal had quashed his conviction for the murder of a young art student-a crime which was the subject of the first Rough Justice investigation, The Case of the Handful of Hair'. The programme revealed discrepancies in the case and named another man as the murderer.
The television team which helped secure JOCK RUSSELL'S release followed him during his first few weeks of freedom as he sought to fit back into society. Ahead was the prospect of huge compensation for wrongful imprisonment-but, even though his protests of innocence had been vindicated, the stigma of prison remained. Reporter Martin Young
