Six families and their houses. It is not only stately homes which are infused with family history, memories and traditions. More ordinary dwellings carry their own stories. 5: The Carters
A Farmhouse in Suffolk
'It's the farm you choose, not the house.' Like most farmers Jack and Ena Carter attach more importance to their land than to their house.
Unlike the farm, the house has seen few changes.
Protected by its moat, it has remained a rural ideal. The fields, however, have lost their hedges, livestock and wildlife.
The only male heir is Jack's 12-year-old grandson.
'When you farm land and work the men you feel a pride about the place. You don't want to see it absorbed by another farm and the house become an ordinary place.' Photography

The Desire of the Moth
The largest known moth in the world has wings the size of a dove; the smallest lives inside a leaf. Although they are creatures of darkness, the bizarre designs and garish colours of moths rival those of butterflies in the hide-and-seek game of life. Among the stories of their intriguing double lives are tales of heroes that rescued Queensland from the prickly pear, of the blizzards of bogongs that were a summer feast for the first Australians, and, strangest of all, the story of that irresistible desire that draws the moth to the flame and sudden death.
