Snowy peaks, carpets of flowers, the echo of distant cowbells - the Austrian Tyrol is real Sound of Music country. But the marmots who live there have a problem
Julie Andrews never had to face - for more than half the year the mountainsides are deep in snow.
The marmots, cuddly sociable animals like overweight squirrels, have found a way to cope with this problem - in a normal year. But when the snow lies thick until the end of May, then falls again in September, how can the marmot family survive? Written and produced by DILYS BREESE

A History of Men in Battle Presented by Frederick Forsyth Cavalry
The horse has an honoured Place in the story of the soldier. His battle-winning days may long be over, but for generations the horse and the horse soldier were the shock arm of warfare. Some modern armies still find a ceremonial role for them out of respect for their past.
Their ancestors, Parthians, Huns, Turks, Mongols, dominated the field of battle for 3,000 years. The Middle
Ages gave us the knight in all his splendour. Even today there are still old soldiers who recall the heady days and the full power of the charge.
Written by JOHN KEEGAN Film editor MIKE JACKSON Producer ROBERT TONER Series producer JOHN GAU
