A documentary of life in the Yorkshire Dales
Narrator Leslie Sands The climax of the year for the sheep farmers of the Yorkshire Dales is the October sale of shearling rams at Hawes in Wensleydale. There are similar sales at other centres in the North of England where every year, it seems, new record prices are reached for the handsome
Swaledale rams from which many of next spring's lambs will be bred. This year at Hawes the new record price was £13,000, even though the average price was, at E605, a good deal less than that.
In this programme, recorded in and around Hawes, farmers from the Dales talk about their lives amid what they and others claim is the most beautiful scenery in the world.

In the mid-70s remote tribesmen in South East Asia told stories of a mysterious substance sprayed from the sky or dropped in canisters that caused death and disease in plants and people. They called it ' yellow rain '.
The US State Department suspected it was chemical warfare waged by Communists, but some sceptical scientists believe it is just pollen and that bees and natural toxines are responsible. Who is right?
David Wheeler reports on the evidence in the ' yellow rain ' mystery with people who have spoken to the victims, scientists who have tested samples and those who say it is all a myth. Producer ANNE WINDER
