Johnny Bledsoe (alias Col Stephen Bedford):
A series of films to mark the publication of the Brundtland Report on the future of the world's environment. The Road to Ruin
Presented by Sue Cook This week, three documentaries that look at why the world of humans and the world of nature are out of balance.
All around us the natural world is being destroyed by the spread of man's activities, and the pace of destruction is accelerating. But it's not just nature that's on the run: by destroying the environment we are also undermining our own future. Why do we do it? To answer this question, Sue Cook talks to the nomads of the Sahara Desert, the Mayan Indians of the Mexican rain forest and the fishermen of the North Sea.

A Horizon special starring Jeff Goldblum as Jim Watson, Tim Pigott-Smith as Francis Crick, Alan Howard as Maurice Wilkins and Juliet Stevenson as Rosalind Franklin
It's 1951. There's a race on and two of the brightest and brashest young men in Cambridge are determined to win it. The prize is glittering. Eternal fame, glory, almost certainly a Nobel prize, await whoever is first past the post - for the goal is nothing less than the secret of life itself. So begins the extraordinary story of the race to the double helix of DNA, one of the greatest true detective stories of the 20th century.
Watson and Crick have the bright ideas and the will to win. But there's one little problem; Rosalind Franklin has the crucial data... and she plays the game by very different rules.
