Every day, one species - or more - becomes extinct.
Much of our food, fuel and building materials comes from plant and animal resources - but they are running out.
The course of evolution is now up to us - keeping the diversity of plant and animal life is crucial to our survival. This is a global report on the facts, the threats and the future, showing the uses, both potential and realised, of the species around us. Wild plants have now provided successful treatment for certain cancers. A cure for AIDS must be a possibility, but will the choice of genetic diversity survive in our fast-changing world?
'Discretion is probably exercised more in traffic law enforcement than in any other single area of the law.' William Woollard asks whether this Oxford University research conclusion means a fair deal for the motorist stopped by the police.

The last in the series with Claudia Roden Italy
All the main influences of the Mediterranean are found in the cooking of southern Italy. In Sicily, the love of sweet things, the sugar and vinegar in savoury dishes and the currants and pinenuts in sauces for pasta, reflect the early Arab presence.
Around Naples and Salerno, it's tomatoes and pasta, pizza and mozzarella; simple food, simply cooked, that relies on the quality and freshness of the ingredients, the perfume of herbs, and good olive oil. In Puglia, the heel of Italy, there is a feeling of ancient times and of isolation. Here the food is at its most basic, the fish and seafood are in abundance, and the diet is said to be the healthiest in the world.

Quarter-finals. The morning's matches continue with eight more frames being played. Introduced by DAVID VINE
Christopher Nolan is a writer. His first book was published, with considerable success, when he was only
15. It's something of a miracle that it was written at all since Christy was brain damaged at birth and cannot walk or talk. Indeed, he wasn't able to write until he was 12, typing using a unicorn stick attached to his head.
Now 21, his second book shows that his youthful success was no accident.
Under the Eye of the Clock is the inside story of his life, frankly told in remarkable, disturbing prose. This film looks at his work and the life that's in it.
