10 : Kennet and Avon with Kenneth Hudson
The most unobtrusive and familiar sign of the Industrial Revolution is the canal. One of the last and probably the most spectacular was John Rennie 's Kennet-Avon built to link ' The Irish and German Oceans.' Still partly navigable today, it boasts the oldest working steam engine in the world to draw its water.

Parents and Young
Long and close relationships between mother and child are characteristic of the higher mammals. On the other hand, the females of many simpler species actually die before their eggs hatch. Between these extremes there are all manner of family relationships: for example, with some fish it's father who does all the work; and in crowded bird colonies, chicks must learn to recognise the call of their parents before they hatch.

In 1953 Francis Crick and James Watson made the most important discovery in biology this century. They discovered how genetic information is stored in cells and passed on from generation to generation. The work won them the Nobel Prize.
Many non-scientists naively believe that science is done in a gentlemanly, rational manner. Not always. Behind the work that led to the structure of DNA - the double helix - lay a story of personal ambition, bitterness between colleagues, gross mistakes and great inspiration. Today the participants in the discovery are eminent scientists and, for the first time, they have agreed to air their own views of the events that led up to the discovery. They do it with wit and candour.
Professor Sir Michael Swann narrates the story with the insight of knowing the participants personally.
