The Day of the Zebra
Narrated by HUGH FALKUS
Zebras are ponies uniquely marked like mint humbugs which helps them in their struggle for survival. Every zebra aims to get through the day alive. They are all engaged in an interlocking system of life and death, of feeding and breeding, because the beauty of the African countryside conceals a streak of necessary beastliness. Each day brings its routine, but also deadly risks. Those surviving at the day's end are the strongest, the fittest to continue the breed. We follow a family of zebras for a day in the Ngorongoro Crater, Tanzania, and see what they do, where they go, and how they cope with life on the African Plains.

The Vet who Writes Books
Introduced by Melvyn Bragg
In this documentary profile James Herriot talks to Melvyn Bragg about his upbringing in Glasgow, his life in Yorkshire and his work as both vet and writer.
Herriot's second career began only some ten years ago. ' It was my wife who pushed me into it. For 30 years I'd been saying I was going to write a book and one day she turned around and said, " Men of 50 don't write books." That stung me. I went right out and bought a pile of paper and got stuck in.' In 1970 his first novel, If Only They Could Talk, was published. Two years later It Shouldn't Happen to a Vet appeared and this was so successful with readers that letters poured in asking for further instalments. Two of his later stories have been made into popular feature films.
If he wished, he could live from his writing alone, but neither fame nor literary success is his first priority. He still feels as he did on first coming to North Yorkshire: ' It suddenly dawned on me this was the life for me. I am a doctor of farm animals now.'
