After fire destroyed the Old Palace of Westminster in 1834, the Victorian architect Charles Barry and his decorator, Augustus Welby Pugin, created on the banks of the Thames one of the most extraordinary buildings in the world, and a congenial place from which the country could be governed. More than a century later their palace of stone, which lacked any kind of accommodation for MPs, is in need of constant attention to meet the pressures of a modem legislature.

In the steamy gloom of a Costa Rican rain forest ants march in armies, lizards walk on water, spiders snare and pounce. Below, in its sunlit glades, birds and butterflies splash it with colour. Above, the call of hidden monkeys further enliven this secret place. But the rich variety of life within the jungle of tropical forest is only matched by our ignorance of it. In this film prize-winning cameraman David Hughes reveals some of the many secrets of the jungle.

(BHAGWAN SHREE RAJNEESH)
Rajneesh owns a speedboat, three jet planes and 27 Rolls-Royces. He lives on a vast estate in America and basks in the adoration of 300,000 acolytes worldwide. His teaching has earned him the sobriquet of ' the free-sex guru '.
His English cult-centre is in Suffolk, in a house called Medina. Here, 150 disciples from all walks of life strive to purge themselves of their guilt feelings. They sing and dance, go into trances and wear only pink or red clothes. They work long hours at the Medina's profitable business ventures - for f 5.50 a week.
Rajneesh has been accused of exploiting and hypnotising his devotees, yet the cult flourishes.
