A series celebrating the role of engineering in modern society. Accidents Will Happen
Machines will always go wrong, so engineers must make them fail safely. This fail-safe approach to design is at the heart of all complex technology from a fuse box to a space shuttle. Can engineers predict every eventuality or will accidents always happen? Tonight's programme searches for the perfect answer - but finds that people can always fool machines. Director Paul Fabricius

If the Rains Don't Come
Zimbabwe is gripped by the worst drought in living memory. A country that was once the grainstore for southern Africa is becoming dependent on aid. In the most extensive animal rescue scheme ever undertaken, hippos, zebra and buffalo are being rounded up. But some animals can't be saved - a thousand elephants may be killed and their meat fed to the hungry people. In the south where no rain at all fell last year, half a million people face starvation. Julian Pettifer reports from Zimbabwe, where the crops have failed, the cattle have died and the ground is too hard for planting. Producer Paul Cleary
