Second of eight programmes presented by Tony Soper
Hedgehogs and squirrels are among the most common visitors to our gardens - one by day, the other by night. But whereas the squirrel is often an unwelcome guest on the bird-table, hedgehogs devour our garden pests by night - no garden should be without one.
But how do you attract them and what do you do when faced with a three-ounce hedgehog orphaned just before the snows of winter? Film editor HUGH TASMAN Producer BRYN BROOKS

The Worm Forgives the Plough
At the beginning of Time, Adam - so the story goes - had a perfect place to live in: Eden. Stained-glass windows show him thrusting his spade into the soil of the Garden for the first time. But since then things have started to go wrong. The growth of our civilisation started with the first systems of agriculture, and the earliest cities that developed in Mesopotamia set the essential pattern of our modem urban society.
Today most of us assume that the food we need will be there on a shelf somewhere for the buying. We have made it into a cash-and-carry world. But at what price? All over the world the changes that have revolutionised agriculture so that supply can keep up with demand, are leaving our landscapes altered, even sometimes maimed. Since the Industrial Revolution we have released forces of power that have dictated the kind of lives we lead.
But are we pushing our luck too hard, as man has often done in the past? Things can and do go wrong - and this is our one and only world.

Reflections in a Writer's Eye. For Bookmark, this famous observer of the English scene journeyed from his new home in the south of France to visit London. Ian Hamilton takes Sir Angus to places which prompt reflections on his life, his work, and the changing Britain he has decided to abandon.
A new writer, Simon Burt , talks about his remarkable first collection of short stories, Floral Street.
And Bookmark investigates H.R.F. Keating , whose new Inspector Ghote novel,
Under a Monsoon Cloud, is published this month. How did such a reserved

Flight from Vatersay
The Hebrides - idyllic isles of wild beauty, majestic, remote, peaceful? That's not how Neil Gillies , 23 years old and unemployed, sees his island home of Vatersay. For him it's a place of isolation, boredom and drink. He can't wait to leave Vatersay, his widowed mother and his eight brothers and sisters, to try his luck in Glasgow.
His prospects aren't good. Jobs are scarce, accommodation hard to find. There are compensations - Vatersay has few girls;
Glasgow seems alive with them. Over the months, the demands of fending for himself begin to tell. When Neil leaves his hard-won job he escapes into the illusory comfort of alcohol. Should he have stayed on the island? Or can he come to terms with this uncompromising city of bed-sits, the dole and bars? Film editor PETER BARBER Producer DAVID PEARSON Editor EDWARD MIRZOEFF
