How do animals make sense of the world? This journey starts inside a swan's egg, joins a wildebeest on migration and flies with a house martin from Africa to England. Discover why a moth flies to a light, and how a pigeon becomes confused by magnetic forces. Why do sharks bite communication cables, hatching turtles visit a hotel, spiders lure moths with sexual chemicals and fireflies flash deadly signals? And why do monarch butterflies, guided by a mysterious sense, congregate in a breathtaking spectacle? Narrator Andrew Sachs

Children in Need
This year looks set to be a record year for charity appeals, not only for the Third World but for poor children in Britain.
Last April, the Government set out to help needy families by changing the Social
Security rules, targetting resources on the worst off, while giving parents more responsibility for their own affairs.
But critics say the reforms have backfired, forcing social workers to appeal to charities and telethons to meet basic needs once provided by the Welfare State.
Against the background of fierce parliamentary debate over the payment of child benefit, Steve Bradshaw analyses the controversy over how best to help
Britain's children in need. Producer HELEN JENKINS Editor TIM GARDAM
