The Living Tundra
The Alaskan midwinter is dark and frozen: little can live there. But in spring the change is total, from a land locked in ice to a vibrant scene of flower-fringed lakes with endless daylight.
Great flocks of wildfowl arrive; insects hatch; lemmings breed; and large animals like moose, caribou, grizzly bear and wolf roam the tundra in search of food. How their various lives interact is important because modern man is now on the tundra, one of the harshest but also one of the most fragile environments on earth. Written and narrated by HUGH FALKUS

A jewel robbery, a hit-and-run, and the Case of the Skeleton in the Sand Dunes illustrate the work of forensic scientists and the police they assist. How do they discover the characteristics of an individual bullet as it enters a body? How are blood stains identified or microscopic flakes of paint? How do voiceprints and lie-detectors work?
The crime labs of Britain and America have different priorities and different techniques. Each can learn from the other. They also have different success rates. Britain's is currently better.
But how long can we hold out against a rapidly rising tide of drugs and violence? What can we learn from American experience? Narrator PAUL VAUGHAN
