The Grass was Not Always Green
Percy Thrower and Geoff Hamilton recall the early
BBC gardening programmes. From a greenhouse with no glass, erected inside a converted cinema, Percy advised the nation's gardeners, and when he ventured into a real garden he was followed by huge heavy cameras that needed four men to move them. Percy became a friend to everyone with a plant to care for, despite the fact that all his dahlias were dark grey! Production assistant CHRISTINE HARDMAN

A natural history in 13 parts by David Attenborough
10: Themes and VariationsMammals are a very varied group. Bats number over a thousand species, many hunt insects, some sip nectar, drink blood, eat fruit, and even catch fish.
Contrast these sonar-users with the great whales that sing, the star-nosed mole and the giant ant-eater - and the potential variations become dramatically clear.

Cervical Cancer - and Men For more than a hundred years doctors have known that cancer of the cervix has something to do with sex.
Now they are confident it is the result of a sexually transmitted disease, most likely a virus, passed from men to women - and back again.
With the cervical screening programme in something of a shambles there is now an epidemic among younger women of a disease that can kill, unless it is detected before it turns to cancer. And, as Richard Lindley reports, men as well as women are now at risk.
The medical evidence seems to be supporting the opponents of the sexual revolution that started in the 60s. With a vaccine to prevent the disease a decade away, can sex be made safe again without a radical change in the way we conduct our sexual relations?
