Portrait of the grey squirrel as thief.
Tight-rope walking along washing lines; scaling walls seven stories high; abseiling down wires: and jumping prodigious distances - it seems there is nothing that grey squirrels will not do to steal from garden bird feeders! But whether you love 'em or hate 'em, there's no denying they are highly successful - both as wild animals, and as urban thieves.
Jessica Holm looks at how cleverly grey squirrels have taken up the challenge of sharing our gardens and stealing food from us. Producer MIKE BEYNON BBC Bristol (R)

Factory Fresh - the Food Revolution
It began as an 'epidemic' of salmonella in eggs. It frightened consumers, cost egg producers dear, and lost Mrs Edwina Currie her job. Now it has put the record and future of British farming on trial.
To satisfy the consumers, farming and food processing have been transformed by science: but is what appears to have happened with eggs, mass-produced now by farming systems undreamt of a generation ago, about to happen with other foods as well?
Vivian White reports on the new risks of the farming and food revolution - and on the plateful of problems it presents for the Government. Producer DANIEL BRITTAIN-CATLIN Editor TIM GARDAM
