The first of three programmes
The story of flying boats is one of ingenuity and enterprise; of style during the dying days of Britain's imperial grandeur; of Coastal Command's war against the U-Boats and of post-war scepticism that hastened their end. David Lomax tells of the early days when Britain's first flying boat landed on the Solent in 1913, of First World War patrols in the North Sea and of RAF long-distance pioneering flights to open up routes to the Empire.

4: The Swarming Hordes
The number of insect species runs into millions; a single termite colony may consist of a million individuals; a locust swarm even a million million.
But not all insects destroy plants as locusts do. Some have developed extremely close relationships. Insects pollinate flowers and in some cases neither flower nor insect can survive without the other.

A series of eight programmes 4: The Block
Dl is Strangeways' punishment landing, known as The Block. It is a place where men are sent to be punished for breaking prison rules. There is also a segregation unit where prisoners regarded as too subversive to live in the main prison are placed by the Governor for ' good order and discipline'. The officers who work here must be constantly on their guard, for it is a place of tension, where the ' smash up ' is almost commonplace.
In tonight's programme we glimpse cons' law (one inmate must never be seen to grass on another), and witness the tension and anguish of a prisoner being placed in the controversial strip cell.
