Despite the collapse of many big tops under the pressure of rising costs and falling receipts, the Circus is far from dead. Its traditions are carried on by family companies which travel every year across Europe. It's not an easy life. Apart from financial worries, there's the problem of educating children, the lack of security in old age. Yet the lure of the Big Top is stronger than all. Film reports from East and West Europe.

Their Life in Your Hands
This year 7,000 people will die of chronic kidney failure. Many could be saved. It's a national tragedy - and largely avoidable. Two medical advances of the 1960s - the kidney machine and kidney transplant - brought new hope. But treatment has become a cruel lottery in which only 600 patients will get the kidney machine they need to live. Even fewer will get a transplant.
Horizon shows for the first time an actual transplant operation, showing the skill of the surgeons who can give life to the lucky few. But why so few?
