There's nothing more natural than giving birth, but the manner in which
Katy Gribble was delivered was rather unusual. She was born at home, in front of the living room fire, underwater, in a birthing tub. Of course, Mum was in the tub, but so was Dad; he had the important job of rubbing Mum's back. Dr Lichy kept an eye on the proceedings. He's performed over 40 underwater deliveries around the Penzance area of Cornwall. On a cold night in January, he brought his tub to the Gribble household ...

William Woollard presents the first of the autumn series from the Paris Motor Show. Long one of the most prestigious venues for the world's motor manufacturers to show off their latest products, it benefits greatly from France having a very strong domestic car industry. Tom Boswell , a new recruit to the team, reflects on the constantly changing fortunes of that country's two mighty domestic producers -
Peugeot Citroen and Renault. Chris Goffey road tests the most important new model at the show - the Renault 19 and, on its 40th birthday,
Beki Adam looks back at that most typical of French cars - the Citroen 2CV.
Plus a look at some of the problems that motorists have to contend with in France. Producer JON BENTLEY

The producers wish to make it clear that this programme has nothing to do with Janet Street-Porter , contains absolutely no in-depth interviews with Kylie
Minogue and was not shot by a cameraman who finds standing up difficult.
However, if you're under 30, you can still watch it - and enjoy the brilliant comedy and impressions of Phil Cool. Written by PHIL COOL PAUL ALEXANDER

Last in the series on the history of the NHS
The Elephant Trundles On The 70s and 80s have been two decades of disruption. Doctors, nurses, hospital workers and even consultants have taken industrial action. At the Elephant and Castle, the DHSS headquarters, there have been rows about costs, cuts, paybeds, privatisation and management.
The Rt Hon Sir Kenneth Robinson , the Rt Hon Barbara Castle, MEP the Rt Hon Dr David Owen , MP, and the Rt Hon Norman Fowler , MP, all former health ministers, recall the ferocious rows.
Meanwhile, the NHS gets better: more services are available, stays in hospital are shorter, people live longer, healthier lives. The
Prime Minister's forthcoming special review of the NHS promises more argument. Is this the inevitable price we pay for the modern NHS? Film editor TIM CRAVEN Written and produced by SIMON CAMPBELLJONES

There is more to hibernation than just sleeping off the winter. The
Canadian ground squirrel can let its body temperature drop to just above freezing, but it doesn't passively fall into a torpor. It remains in control and even wakes up at intervals throughout the winter.
