Most of us at sometime in our. lives face difficulty, frustration and depression. A small minority, perfectly healthy themselves, know that misfortune and harassment will not go away. These are the people who nurse, tend or support those suffering from physical or mental handicaps.
This programme tells five stories of people who just won't give up, even though they know that things won't really get better. Producer

Presented by Anthony Smith

The seas around the Antarctic are brimming with valuable shellfish. Who owns these riches? What is the possibility that a world hungry for food, minerals and energy, might be able to exploit the planet's last wilderness? Producer DAVID PATERSON
