A series of zoological exploration Introduced by Jeffery Boswall 5: Los Glaciares National Park
Among the Patagonian Andes, this park offers the most spectacular scenery in all Argentina. An ice-cap feeds glaciers of extraordinary beauty, which in turn give birth in the lakes below to giant icebergs.
A wealth of wildfowl, including swans with black necks, grace the waters. On the scrubby plains, the expedition searches for the guanaco, a wild, much-persecuted member of the camel family.

Do We Really Need the Railways? Should we concrete them over, and use them as reserved tracks for high speed buses? Or replace them with 200 mph vehicles, guided, driven and supported by electro-magnets?
Britain's railways were the engineering triumph of the industrial revolution but, say some economists, they are outmoded in the 20th century. Other kinds of public transport could be much better value. Horizon takes a realistic look at the new ideas and technologies that threaten our existing railway system - and at the research British Rail is doing to meet the challenge. Narrator PAUL VAUGHAN
