Fish can fly, produce electricity, live in the black ocean depths, survive in hot soda lakes or under Antarctic ice, even migrate across oceans and up waterfalls - the dramatic achievement of the king of fish, the salmon.

Britain's nuclear bases and talks to Labour leader The Rt Hon Neil Kinnock , MP; Tory Defence Secretary The Rt
Hon George Younger , MP and his American counterpart, Casper Weinberger. Producer PETER BELL
