The Life and Death of an Oak
First of two films from top French wildlife film-makers Gerald Calde ron and Jean-Marie BauHe.
The oak is one of the most important trees in European woodlands: many animals - blue tits, jays, squirrels, cockchafers and wild boars - depend on it for shelter. Even when it dies and has fallen, the oak still contributes to wood-land life. Strange creatures of damp and decay live inside the rotting trunk forming new soil-the nursery for a sprouting acorn. Narrated by ROBERT RIETTY

Three Loud Amens with Aberavon Male Choir Cwmbach Male Choir
Trelawnyd Male Voice Choir
Owain Arwel Hughes tells the story of the Welsh Male Voice Choirs, which are not formal choral societies, but an integral part of community life.
A hundred years ago it was the dangerous work in the South Wales coal mines that helped bind men together in musical harmony. Today the choirs survive on their merits, and toursabroad are becoming a regular pattern. But the tradition of Welsh choral singing is under threat as social and educational attitudes change.
