A voyage of the imagination into the future on and outside our planet by Nigel Calder.
The second of three programmes.
The prospect of settling in Space concentrates the mind wonderfully on the prospects for transforming the Earth. The theme is life itself, and whether plants, animals and man can benefit from our discoveries in Space. Already built are systems for growing food crops in the eternal darkness of Space, and eco-dwellings that may be a model for space-villages. Translated back to Earth, ideas like these may rejuvenate our eroded and polluted planet. Professor John Postgate of Sussex University and Professor Sol Spiegelman of Columbia University consider how genetic processes, natural or artificial, can alter life on Earth or outside it-if our species can cope with the challenge.

A season of six television dramas from around the world opens with Waris Hussein 's magnificent portrait of Sarah Bernhardt which earned an International Emmy nomination last year for the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation.
Paris, 1912. As the 68-year-old Bernhardt prepares for her role in the silent film, La Reine Eliza beth, she remembers the early days of her life: her struggle to start her career, and then the time when she was the scandal-and the success - of the Comedie Franchise.
The programme re-creates the legend of the French theatre with a story of a personal triumph over ill-health, anti-semitism, vicious rumours and a disastrous marriage by a woman whose turbulent life and tempestuous moods made her the toast of kings and shopkeepers.
Written by SUZANNE GROSSMAN Directed by WARIS HUSSEIN for CBC
