This week's programme in the series on Man and Science Today.
If a man has a fever and his body temperature rises by only 10°F, he will die. But we seldom consider how our lives depend on keeping our bodies at -an exact temperature with our blood circulation, our clothing, even central heating. We have become completely dependent on our created environment - our civilisation. Without this the English climate is fatal. Lost gn a mountain, capsized in the sea, a man soon learns his inadequacies.
Horizon this week asks the questions : what are the limits of our survival? Is central heating sapping our power of acclimatisation - our natural ability to survive? Narrator CHRISTOPHER CHATAWAY
