An award-winning natural history in six parts. Narrator Andrew Sachs 4: A Question of Learning
Why are some grizzly bears better fishermen than others? How do sooty terns locate their own nests among a colony of thousands? During this century scientists attempted to reveal the nature of learning.
In Russia Pavlov sought explanations from his dogs, with tinkling bells and lights. In America scientists devised mazes, puzzle boxes and 'one-armed-bandits' to explore behaviour. By using rewards they encouraged animals to develop amazing skills.

The award-winning series of four films of early exploration. Introduced from the Royal Geographical Society by the Antarctic explorer Duncan Carse. 1: Everest - First Attempt (1922)
'Mount Everest is great and beautiful. Marvellously built: majestic, terrible.' So wrote one of the first climbers to stand beneath the peak of the highest mountain in the world. Yet these early pioneers were to get within 1,700 feet of the summit; bivouac through a blizzard; get frostbite and windburn; and at the end of their tribulations, return with a classic film.

History in the present
The Last Führer: among the Nazi war leaders tried at Nuremberg, Hitler's successor Admiral Doenitz, received the lightest sentence of all. Now new research suggests Doenitz was far more deeply implicated in the atrocities of the Third Reich than previously imagined.
'They be Evil People': was how British newspapers described the Russians in the late 17th century. A cautionary tale of how Englishmen in the 1720s feared Tsar Peter the Great planned to conquer the world.
The Cult of the Dead: how different were medieval attitudes towards death from our own today? The wills and funeral expenses of the 16th century help provide an answer.
