Sweet Honey in the Rock
Sweet Honey in the Rock is a group of black women singers who have developed a highly distinctive a cappella approach to black music.
Their gospel-style delivery is superimposed on the rhythms of jazz, rhythm and blues, and African songs alike to create a stunning sound. Through powerful lyrics, they connect black
American and African music, ongoing struggles in Soweto and Chile, and the political, social and personal.

Battle for the Eagles
Presented by Tony Soper Some see them as vicious killers to be shot, trapped and poisoned. Others regard them as noble birds and strive to protect them.
Attitudes are now changing fast, at least in Europe and North America, and species like the golden eagle, osprey, and peregrine falcon are gradually recovering.
Now these threats have shifted to the south, and in particular, the problem of pesticides has become widespread, affecting the land and water that people share with birds of prey.
What affects them ultimately affects us and so these birds have become vital indicators of the health of the planet. Film editor COLIN CRADOCK Producer RICHARD BROCK
