The magazine show which covers the latest in technology, medicine and the environment.
This week there's a report on how India's Space Department is using satellites to find water in a drought. The tell-tale signs of hidden water - such as places where plants grow better than in others - are not always visible from ground level.
Satellite pictures can double the chances of finding the right spot to drill a well. But the pictures beamed back are not just of water sites. They also give a fuller picture of the country's natural resources. Bob Symes tries out the latest nautical inventions. Using a new easy-to-read compass, he navigates the Solent. And he tests a safety gauge that checks how hard the anchor is gripping the sea bed and warns if the boat is drifting onto the rocks.
With Howard Stableford, Judith Hann , Kate Bellingham , Carmen Pryce and John Diamond. Producer Richard Dale Editor Dana Purvis ●STEREO

Investigative science series. Little Monsters. "He's like a Jekyll and Hyde, an angel one moment and a monster the next," says the distraught mother of a 7-year-old. Most children can be little monsters at times but there are some who seem to be permanently uncontrollable whatever their parents do. Hyperactivity is one of the most controversial conditions in child psychiatry. In older children it can lead to vandalism and serious crime.
Is it due to food additives, brain damage or just bad parenting? Tonight's programme reports on new research which has produced surprising answers, bringing hope for at least some of the little monsters.
