Places of Britain it still glides ands swoops through clear, cold skies. But always in the background there is man with his guns, traps, poisons and blind, unthinking talent for destruction.

Where There's Land There's Hope
Today there are still refugees living in the feeding camps of Sudan and Somalia forgotten by the world. As the shadow of famine returns to Ethiopia, Marian Foster reports on how British charities are helping destitute families exhausted by war and famine to make a new living from the land.
Ten years ago the Brita Leth was lying idle in a Danish harbour and could easily have rotted away. In her long life she's earned her living carrying cargoes under sail in the Baltic and more recently working converted as a dredger in Kiel Fjord. Now thanks to her enthusiastic Danish owner the Brita has been restored back as a sailing vessel and once again earns her living.
with Jimmie Macgregor
Today Jimmie crosses the bleak Moor of Rannoch to Kingshouse. Then after a steep pull up the Devil's
Staircase he goes over the hills to Kinlochleven. And the final stretch takes him through the Lairighmor and finally to Fort William.
Deer stalking, rock climbing and an unusual view of Ben Nevis , Scotland's highest mountain, are some of the delights he comes across. Produced and directed by DENNIS DICK

A series of 13 films in which a walled garden is restored and worked as it was
100 years ago.
Presented by Peter Thoday with Head Gardener
Harry Dodson 5: April
It was called 'the hungry gap'. While the staff were fed tired offerings from the root store, the head gardener had to play a horticultural conjuring trick to provide his master with luxury vegetables.
Harry grows marble-sized potatoes in pots under glass, cuts asparagus from the forcing house, and uncovers seakale shoots, the colour of 'carved ivory'.
Using modern equipment, Peter demonstrates the effectiveness of hot beds in advancing young plants. In the glasshouse the peaches make good progress, while at the bottom of the garden a beehive is introduced. Photography PAUL MORRIS Music by PAUL READE

Images of a Revolution
What really happened in Russia in October 1917? How far can we rely on the vivid films from the period to give us a true picture of the Revolution and, of incidents such as the storming of the Winter Palace in St Petersburg?
Christopher Andrew , in a critical examination of documentary evidence and the memories of Russian emigres who were eyewitnesses to the events of 1917, steers a path through the propaganda, censorship, carelessness and sheer misunderstanding that have distorted the historical record in Russia and the West for the past 70 years.
