The daffodil is one of our best-loved spring garden flowers but to find the home of the wild plants, Geoffrey Smith travels to remote valleys in the snow-capped mountains of northern Spain. (R)

I'm a Kind of Mechanised Tramp
Bill Houston is the kind of cyclist who would abhor the Tour de France almost as much as he abhors the motor car - he prefers exploring back roads and goat tracks. When he came out of the army in 1946 he vowed that no one was going to order him about for 20 years. In
1972 he was still living for the bicycle. That is 25 years, 34 countries and 400,000 miles later.

Last week, BBC1 showed again a powerful documentary made last year - Fourteen Days in May. It depicted the final two weeks in the life of Edward Johnson, a young black man on death row in Mississippi. Johnson was convicted of killing a white town marshal. He had always strongly proclaimed his innocence.
This April, his lawyer Clive Stafford Smith returned to Mississippi in a bid to discover the truth and clear his client's name. Though it proved a difficult task, he eventually found many people who were prepared to name, on film, the man they claim to be the true killer.
Stafford Smith then learned where the alleged murderer lived. His confrontation with this man provides a remarkable climax to his extraordinary journey.
