The fourth of six films that show the beautiful intertwinings of the living things on our varied earth. The Living Rain Forest
Tropical rain forest is superlative. It's got the biggest flower, the longest snake, its orang-utan is the heaviest creature of the trees. It is the richest, most favourable environment for life on land with the greatest number of different plants and animals anywhere.
And yet all this complexity is an ordered balanced system of checks and counter checks. What is more, it is a system that man unbalances at considerable risk, for it is the lung of the world - but a lung in reverse that breathes out the oxygen that we breathe in. Narrated by JEFFERY BOSWALL
Filmed by JOHN MACKINNON Producer RICHARD BROCK (from Bristol)

The Curtain of Silence
What's it like to be deaf? There are more than 2 million people in Britain today who could tell you. It's a disability which can affect anyone at any age, at any time.
Deafness is one of the most crippling afflictions of all. It forms a barrier between the young and education, the teenager and job opportunities, the old and their friends. But in terms of treatment and research it takes a tragically low priority, and is often called the Cinderella of Medicine.
This film shows how the curtain of silence can affect you, and reports on what - if anything - is being done to help.
