August: The Country Priest
Louis Mahuas is parish priest of the village of Landaul, near the south coast of Brittany.
He ministers to no more than ten at early morning Mass on weekdays, a full church on Sundays. For 30 years he has enjoyed teaching science at the church school where he was once a pupil himself. But Fr Louis is even more Breton than French. The revival of his native Celtic language and culture is the passion of his life.

Man of Iron
'I'm a stroke victim. When I walk I have to drag an invisible ball and chain, and I speak with a stumbling parody of my old voice. But I'm a bloody sight better off than I would have been without fighting it.'
Eric Pleasants is 73 and fighting the hardest battle of his extraordinary life. A strongman turned martial arts instructor, he survived German POW camps by joining the Britische Freikorps , and seven years in a Siberian prison camp for smuggling people across the German border. He believes that his highly developed sense of personal survival and his fanatical physical fitness have helped him recover from a massive stroke which would have killed many and crippled most.

The 300-million Years War with John Lawton
Minefields, poison gas, hired mercenaries, early-warning systems - it's no holds barred in the never-ending battle between two of nature's superpowers: the insects and the plants. Q.E.D. uncovers a microscopic world of conflict where thousands of insects lay siege to a single tree. Unable to move, plants retaliate with their arsenal of chemical weapons. There are few clear victories, but one thing is certain - plants are not pacifists.
