The story of Sir Stanley Hooker
In the Second World War his work on the Rolls-Royce Merlin increased its power by 30 per cent, and helped win the Battle of Britain.
Later he led the design team that produced engines for Concorde and the Harrier Jump Jet. But in the 1950s and 1960s there were frequent cancellations: 'Over a period of years we were in, we were out, we were in, we were out. It was more like a boat race than a policy to follow.'
Sir Stanley died earlier this year. This special programme is based on an extended interview he gave Jonathan Lewis in 1981.
Peacocks, Parasites and the Puzzle of Sex
What's the purpose of sex? To protect us from disease! Brian Leith unravels the intricate puzzle of sex and finds that:
Males seem to be a waste of time and energy - many of the successful plants and animals (like the weeds in your garden) do without them altogether!
Big animals - from polar bears to human beings - always have males as well as females - for a very good reason!
The vital clue to the mystery lies in parasitism and infection.
Out of the puzzle emerges a sparkling new theory of sex that looks set to keep biologists buzzing for years. Film editor COLIN CRADOCK Producer CAROLINE WEAVER Series editor PETER JONES BBC Bristol
