8.40 Today's Papers
Graceful and often brilliantly coloured, few creatures give us more pleasure. But modern farming methods, building development, even our own increased enjoyment of the countryside make it hard for butterflies to survive in Britain today. In other parts of the world, they are being collected by the thousand to make jewellery and ornaments.
What can we do to ensure a future for the butterfly?

Jack Clemo , the Cornish poet, has lived all his life in a little cottage under the St Austell claytips.
He is blind and deaf and can speak only with difficulty. But a great spirit, a passionate faith, a devoted mother and, in more recent years, a loving wife, have enabled him to rise like a phoenix out of the lunar landscape of Cornish claytips. RALPH ROLLS presents a portrait of JACK CLEMO. with a selection of his poems read by Jack's fellow Cornish poet CHARLES CAUSLEY.
