Malcolm Muggeridge pays tribute to six men whose lives spanned the story of Christendom - men of outstanding genius whom he sees as six characters in search of God. They were all essentially men of their time, but had in common the special role of relating time to eternity.
2: Blaise Pascal - brilliant French mathematician and theologian who gave the Christian faith the inner luminosity it needed to survive the Renaissance. ' I look for God, therefore I have found Him.'

The Insect World of Dr Lee Written and narrated by Anthony Smith Taiwan is 100 miles off the main-land of China and has a hot moist climate suitable for an amazing variety of insects; there is even a thriving industry that markets butterfly wings by the millions.
Dr Sung-Yang Lee is an entomologist and amateur film maker much more concerned with the beauty of live insects. For eight years he has been filming the insects of Taiwan and grappling with problems like photographing the tiny natural light produced by a firefly. For Dr Lee all this was a labour of love which took his life savings, all his spare time and endless patience.
