Six films about living music
1: Close Your Eyes and Open Your Ears
Most of the world's music has never been written down. Most of it was and is made by people who were never trained. And most music teaching ignores it.
For the next six weeks, you are invited to open your ears to a variety of living sounds that turn up rarely in the concert hall or on the television screen. The sounds are all different from each other, but they share the life and energy of music made and improvised, on the spot, by performers who are also creators.
Indian ragas, contemporary jazz, new wave rock, electronic music and the sounds of the modern city, shared by professional performer/composers with a young and enthusiastic audience of tomorrow's performers.

The Place that Comes and Goes
Each year in late autumn, Spurn Point at the mouth of the River Humber becomes the centre of attraction for birds and bird-watchers. This narrow spit of land that stretches out into the inhospitable North Sea falls in the flightpath of the countless flocks of small migrating birds that arrive from Scandinavia and beyond to spend winter in the milder countryside of Britain.
Spurn is also a refuge for a resident population of land creatures that thrive on its isolated nature. But its future is at the mercy of the sea, which is eroding its shape more rapidly than any other coast-line in Europe - an incessant problem for the people and wildlife that live there.
Together with ornithologist Roger Lovegrove , ANGELA RIPPON meets Bob Spencer of the British Trust for Ornithology and Michael Clegg of the Yorkshire Naturalists' Trust, to explore this fragile peninsula of land.

The Genie's Out of the Bottle
Today, only five nations admit to possessing nuclear weapons. By the year 2000 most countries in the world will have the resources and the knowledge to build them. Is this trend towards the proliferation of nuclear weapons inevitable? Should we be doing more to restrict the spread of nuclear know-how? David Jessel reports.

Lou Parker feels very strongly that she and her husband, Ray, are different from the Farrells and the Ackerleys. With them it s all television. But she and Ray have the local library and The Observer. They keep abreast. They're different.
