A series of programmes looking at the wildlife to be found in different parts of Canada including mountain goats and grizzly bears.
Narrated by Rick Jones
It's well known that insects and other lower animals have an elaborate language of scent signals giving smell instructions for anything from the finding of a mate to where to go for food, and even population control. But now scientists are finding evidence for such a system in higher animals and even man, and the question this programme sets out to answer is just how much does man still use this kind of signal.

An inside view of life on the Bishop Rock Lighthouse.
Perched on a tiny outcrop of rock at the edge of the Atlantic, ' the Bishop ' has something special about it for the Trinity House officers who man Britain's light-houses. It's the last lighthouse for westward-bound ships, and the last still operating almost as it did under Queen Victoria's patronage. Soon, it may be replaced by an unmanned light, but in tonight's programme Tony Parker talks with the men who still maintain their lonely vigil in the ' Ships' Graveyard,' off the Isles of Scilly.
