The Trouble with Evolution ...
Why have the crocodile, horseshoe crab and other ' living fossils ' stayed much the same while other creatures continue to evolve alongside them? Why are there so many gaps in the fossil record? How did the elephant get its trunk?
John Maynard Smith , Stephen Jay Gould and Ted Steele examine these and some other intriguing puzzles of evolution that still worry biologists today. From the Central American jungle to a Welsh lead mine; the cliffs of Beachy Head to the Henry VII chapel in Westminster, the film looks for some of the answers and asks if there is a serious alternative to Darwinism.

Eight films on modern art and a century of change.
Robert Hughes looks at the past 100 years through the lens of its art, from the Impressionists to the present day.
4: Trouble in Utopia
One of the chief impulses of modernism was the desire to remake the world, to create an ideal architecture and an ideal art to promote the cause of an ideal society A great deal of architectural thought, from the Bauhaus to Brasilia, is based on the idea that buildings can improve the thought and behaviour of the people who live in them. This proved to be a lost hope.
This film, shot on location in France, Germany, Brazil, New York and Chicago, includes unique archival material of MIES VAN DER ROHE, LE CORBUSIER, WALTER GROPIUS and a specially-filmed interview with PHILIP JOHNSON.
