Narrated by Kenneth Allsop
A resort for migrant humans - a staging post for migrating birds. The biggest of the Balearic Islands can attract two kinds of people: those who fly in for sun and fun, and others who look for the quiet life that is still the traditional Majorca - fruitful land in a southern sea.
Today there are falcons round the cliffs, vultures wheeling in the mountains, and ospreys fishing in the lakes. But with the rapid growth of urban development cramping Majorca's rich wildlife - what of tomorrow?

Forty-four years ago, some miners went to prison for wrecking a train. There were many acts of sabotage during the General Strike, but this was one that came within inches of disaster. Most people saw it as an act of irresponsible lunacy, but the miners still think they were justified.
As one of them says: '...we had to do something similar to what we did do, for to let the people see what we were getting. I would say we were slaves, we were getting starvation wages.'
Introduced by TONY BILBOW With PHILIP JENKINSON and NIGEL REES
