with Su Ingle and Michael Jordan.
Mike is in Northern Ireland, investigating one of nature's great mysteries. Each year adult eels leave our rivers and head for the mid-Atlantic. About now millions of young eels, or elvers, return. What has happened to the adults? How do the young know where to come back to?
Mike and Su give tips on how to recognise some of our most common birds by the songs they sing.

The last programme in this series is a two-part examination of the effects of nuclear weapons. Introduced by Ludovic Kennedy
The first half of the programme looks at the physical effects of a single medium-sized nuclear warhead on a large city. How effectively would various types of shelter protect us from these effects? Two couples experimentally live in fall-out shelters for ten days each.
The implications of the film are then discussed by medical, scientific and civil defence specialists.
Would cities be likely targets in a real nuclear attack? What kind of resources would be available to deal with the aftermath of such a calamity? And what could we do - practically - to diminish the effect if it ever were to happen?
(Part 2 - 'The Underground Test' on Friday 10.0 pm BBC2)
