Regional Variations (2)

The first of four programmes

Shrunken in size - but not in enthusiasm - David Bellamy takes a journey through an ordinary British garden proving that you don't have to go to remote parts of the world to learn about the wonders of evolution.

A 5mm-tall Bellamy travels among the cracks in the crazy paving to find a world of plants and animals which have evolved to live out of the way of the drying winds of the surface. It's a hazardous journey because here everything is on the look-out for a tasty morsel for lunch.

Here's the good news. Three out of four smokers do not die of smoking-related diseases. They may find it difficult to breathe and may have circulatory problems, but they do live long enough to die of something else. And lung cancer and bronchitis deaths are marginally down.
The bad news is that heart disease in middle age has increased - possibly due to carbon monoxide, and that deaths among women are still going up. The UK is a world-leader, with some 200 smoking-related deaths a day - and Scotland is top of the local league.
Is there any way of predicting who will live and who will die? Smoking is becoming less socially acceptable, and 70 per cent of smokers would like to give up. If they do, will that take them out of the game? Or is the die already cast? Narrator PAUL VAUGHAN
' Must ' viewing for those who want to Inch the habit. (MS LONDON) Editor SIMON CAMPBELL-JONES
