Seventh of eight programmes on the mammals of Britain Presented by Tony Soper Britain can boast of 41 native mammal species; we used to have more, but we've lost bears and beavers, and some Would say that rats and coypu are a poor exchange. But all our mammals are fascinating, whether they are 'Ratty' or 'Mole', and even those that live underground have a story to tell if you dig deep enough.

A series of seven programmes 6: Getting Out from Under
Peasants and small farmers have always been under pressure, either from landlords or from economic stringency, and nowadays is no exception. In Europe and America more and more of them are going to the wall, and today the cities and towns, which in medieval times provided safety and security, don't seem to hold quite the same promise, as industries come and go.

A series of films about the way we live now
'I'm British', says the young lady with strawberry blonde hair and a Midlands accent, 'but I don't have a drop of British blood in me.' Carmen Laanemagi is from Leicester - and Estonia. Pauline Riemers is a nurse in Epsom; her parents are Latvian. Algis Kuliukas, a British Airways computer programmer, lives in Hounslow; he's part-
Lithuanian. Last July they embarked on the Baltic Star in Stockholm. It was the beginning of an emotional and exciting voyage.
The aim was to sail as close as they could get to the coasts of Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia - now part of the Soviet Union.
Forty years ago their parents had fled as refugees when the three Baltic states lost their short-lived independence. Now the lost children were returning - hoping for a distant glimpse of home. Narrator Ian Holm
