Spring in Fiordland
Tonight's film, the fourth in this series of six, is made by a team from the London
International Film School.
Fiordland in the South Island of New Zealand is one of the most remote and spectacular mountain areas of the world. This natural history film, based on Operation Raleigh research and shot in just six weeks, follows the spring meltwaters from alpine peaks through rainforest to the sea. Tree ferns, honey eaters, strange lichens, mountain parrots, the flightless takahe and, of course, the kiwi are all part of this idyllic setting. Directed and edited by TREVOR DE KOCK

From Atomic Power to Zoos with Michael Buerk and reporters John Howard and Linda Mitchell
In 50 years there will be two million tonnes of unwanted nuclear waste stored throughout Britain. Though the exact locations of such dumps are undecided, their choice will cause a major political row. The Government's public consultation period ends next week, but will its options be any clearer? And the conflict between beauty and cruelty: should fur coats made from animals caught in leg-hold traps carry a warning label? Alan Clark ,
Minister of Trade, says 'yes'. The Canadian Government says 'no'.

Born in Jerusalem in 1935, Edward Said now lives in New York with his wife and two children. He is currently Professor of Comparative Literature at Columbia University. Educated in Palestine, Egypt, Lebanon and the United States, he is one of America's most distinguished literary scholars and critics. Apart from his academic work, Said's great preoccupation is the story of his homeland and his dispossessed people. He is a member of the Palestine National Council and a supporter of the PLO. Totally opposed to the use of violence for political ends,
Said puts his argument for a just settlement to the Palestinian question.
'Heimat'is the memory of the fundamental first impressions somebody has: from his family, from the place of his birth, from his childhood.
The title of Edgar Reitz 's epic film does not translate adequately, but his 15 1/2-hour narrative of German rural life since 1919 has earned critical acclaim in every country where it has been shown.
Russell Davies talks to Edgar Reitz about the autobiographical inspiration of Heimat, and how the making of the film marked a return to his native region of the Hunsriick after a long - but necessary - absence.
