10: Theme and Variations
Mammals are a very varied group. Even among the bats, which number over 1,000 species, there is great diversity. Contrast these flying mammals which use sonar, with the great whales that sing, the star-nosed mole and the giant anteater which claws into termite mounds - and the potential variations from a common ancestor become dramatically clear.

Joey Deacon died in December. This is the unique and remarkable story of his life. He was born in 1920 with brain damage. He grew up severely spastic, unable to talk or walk. He lived for years in an institution, unable to make himself understood.
After 13 years in hospital Joey met another spastic patient, Ernie Roberts, who had a remarkable skill. He could understand Joey. Joey's story could now be told. He dictated his memories to Ernie, who in turn dictated them to Michael, a third patient. Tom, a fourth member of the group, typed out the story. Every day the group produced three lines, and after almost one-and-a-half years' work, the book Tongue-Tied was finished. This programme reconstructs the story of that book.
Extraordinarily uplifting. (Sunday Times)

A series of four films 3: Sponooch
When HOT gossip burst upon an unsuspecting public they became, almost overnight, the most famous and successful dancers in the business. But for five of the original group it was not enough. They left Hot Gossip and formed their own group - SPONOOCH.
They struggle to be independent, democratic and uncompromising, trying to elevate their reputation and their cultural credibility. Over six months the film follows their attempts to find the work, the money and the management that will enable them to keep on trying.
