The master comedian from the golden age of silent comedy in excerpts from his films. Harold heads for his garage and his handsome new Model T, but has problems getting going in Get Out and Get Under, then appears to defy the laws of gravity when he finally gets started; an unforeseen laundry-van ride in Safety Last means Harold needs a fast lift to work or faces the sack.

Presented by Angela Rippon
In the last of the present series Roger Lovegrove takes us to the Dee Estuary where the RSPB has recently bought 5,000 acres of salt marsh, which at this time of year is rich in wading birds; and Joe Henson visits Exmoor during the round-up of the famous Exmoor ponies-a breed which is closely related to the ancestral wild horse of Europe and which has now become a rare animal on its native moor.
Together with her other guests, Phil Drabble and Elizabeth Eyden , Angela looks at the role of conservation in the countryside, asking whether nature reserves have any wide influence on the health and wealth of our wildlife, and where we fit in. Should such reserves be ' strictly for the birds' or can we hope to enjoy them as well?

'When he died, I felt that the Big Top of poetry had lost its central pole.' (Seamus Heaney)
At Robert Lowell's death in 1977, he was widely regarded as America's finest poet, indeed the finest in the language. His work had an astonishing range: from New England's puritan past, to the most intimate details of his own personal life, and the larger historical perspectives of modern America - Vietnam, the Presidency, wars and assassinations. This study of his life for the Lively Arts includes unique archive footage of Robert Lowell talking about his work and, above all, reading it. Many of his closest friends also pay tribute to the man Eugene McCarthy has called 'the poet of history in America'.
