Too Late the Phalarope the novel by ALAN PATON dramatised by STEWART CONN
'He did not go to van Onselen Street , but crossed to where it is dark, away from the pools of light. And he came to the place where the blue gums are, and the kakiebos weed in the vacant ground. And he stood there waiting, with the mad sickness and the fear. And there, God forgive him, he possessed her.'

Kenneth Hudson looks at the way we view history 1: The Landscape
The British landscape is like a book printed on transparent pages. You turn one page and something that's gone before shines through. It's a composite of many different ages; each one had added its little bit to the picture.
But the latest chapter in the story is of almost unrestrained destruction; we are in danger of obliterating much of the heritage it has taken us so long to acquire. How can we adapt and use our rural and urban landscape without damaging our inheritance?
Producer JOHN KNIGHT BBC Bristol long wave only

With the help of naturalists from all over Europe, we follow the northward migration of birds and insects, uncover animals emerging from hibernation and trace the surge of new plant life. And, with the prolonged drought in Africa affecting over-wintering bird migrants we ask - will the birds return?
