Evolutionary psychology is a new science that argues in favour of a universal human nature, thatthereare common human tendencies which could explain why men are sexually attracted to certain types of women, why people become violent or why they are ambitious. Presenter David Malone explores how this, and otherareas of scientific endeavour, are open to exploitation by others with political ratherthan scientific motives at heart.
He also looks at waste disposal on a grand scale: why we are so bad at getting rid of large junk, such as spent nuclear reactors, obsolete oil rigs, unwanted concrete buildings and chemical plants that are past their sell-by dates. What will happen to them when they are no longer useful?

Love Thy Neighbour
Disputes between neighbours may start small but they can make life a misery, and for every complaint there is another side of the story to tell.
Reporter Wendy Robbins visits a household that includes several children and a menagerie of pets, with more of each on the way. While their neighbours claim they are at their wits' end, they cannot force the family to move, as the house istheirown. The family claim their critics don't understand their unconventional lifestyle.
For council tenants who complain about neighbours the chances of reaching a solution aren't any better. Many councils say complaints are on the increase, but getting a neighbour evicted is a long process that often gets tangled in red tape. So if there is a dispute, what can you do?
