'You wouldn't put a bag of frogs in the corner and expect them still to be happy and kicking at the end of a year. The same is true of seeds.'
As the wild areas of the world dwindle, plants are being destroyed before their usefulness can be known. But while saving whole forests may be impossible, saving their seeds is not. Colin Tudge visits Wakehurst Place in Sussex, where scientists of the Royal Botanical Gardens, Kew, are seeking surer and subtler ways both of storing seed and of quickening them into life. Producer ALISON RICHARDS

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a
historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any
given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the
understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time
- not those of today.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
