Champagne evokes memories: a wedding, a birth, a contest won, a deal closed - always a joyous occasion. Many countries make a sparklingwine, but they are not allowed to use the name
Champagne. This privilege belongs by right, and in recent years by law, to the wines of Champagne. This film visits the one small area of France where the vines are grown and the wine produced.

Another chance to see David
Attenborough's award-winning series The Life Trilogy.
Jungle. From the crown of a huge silk cotton tree in the Amazon, 200 feet up, David Attenborough explores the jungle by rope, gradually descending through tiers of leaves to the dark forest floor, to find some of the most colourful and extraordinary plants and animals on earth. From the world's largest flower, rafflesia, to the world's smallest monkey. From bats that eat figs to a frog that carries its tadpoles up into the trees, flying snakes, dancing cocks of the rocks, scarlet macaws in their nests, singing gibbons, elephant shrews, whip scorpions and courting pheasants. Producer Richard Brock
