A Fortune in Flowers
Patrick O'Hara can make £1,000 from a buttercup, yet his special gift might have gone undiscovered but for one stroke of fate - he was made redundant. When his services as an agricultural adviser were no longer required, he threw caution to the winds, and, with his wife's blessing, bought a kiln. He planned to make his new-found hobby his living.
Today he is a sculptor in porcelain. making delicate, life-size pieces that are eagerly bought by collectors. His subjects are always wild flowers and insects, and he prides himself on re-creating exactly the shade of a butterfly's wing. or the bloom on a petal.

Leonard Rossiter investigates a Victorian phenomenon: Isambard Kingdom Brunel (1806-1859)
At the age of 20, Brunel was engineer in charge of the Thames Tunnel, the first tunnel ever driven under a river, now used by the Underground. At 27 he designed the Great Western Railway, completed from London to Bristol when he was 35. He also built the first transatlantic steam-ship, the first screw-propelled liner, and the Great Eastern, each in turn by far the largest ships to sail the seas.
While he was directing his great works, Brunel confided his private doubts and ambitions to secret journals. Leonard Rossiter, using many unpublished letters and diaries, plays a dual role, as Brunel himself, and as narrator visiting the scenes of Brunel's triumphs.
