A five-part re-creation of Wainwright's 40-year love affair with Scotland. 3: The Isle of Skye
'I was so anxious to come here that, from about 1947 onwards, when I got a new diary each year I opened it at random and noted
"Have you been to Skye yet?" ' It was another seven years before Wainwright persuaded a friend to bring him.
He was rewarded with the 'finest mountains in Britain'. Now, at 80, 'AW recalls with emotion his first sight of the Black Cuillin, his difficult scramble up Sgurr nan Gillean, and finds this latest visit blessed with rare, perfect weather.

A portrait of an island continent in six episodes narrated by Robyn Williams 1: A Separate Creation
The flattest, the driest and, with the exception of Antarctica, the most sparsely populated continent,
Australia is the largest island in the world with an area equivalent to the USA.
Nature seems to be turned upside down; some mammals lay eggs, some hop rather than run, swans are black, and the trees shed bark, not leaves.
Australia is a treasure trove of extraordinary wildlife - the platypus, the marsupial kangaroos and koalas, the unique gum trees and vividly coloured parrots. There's nowhere like it in the world.
And yet the key to understanding Australia's uniqueness lies in its origins as part of the ancient supercontinent of Gondwanaland and its drift northwards beneath the Tropic of Capricorn - for
Australia is a continent on the move.
