The BBC's award-winning entry for the Italia Prize (Documentary Category)

The familiar cries of the gulls along our coastline are only a small part of the language of these birds. During the breeding season especially, they use a number of other sounds as well as postures to communicate with each other. The meaning and use of all these are examined in this remarkable study of life in a colony of Lesser Black-backed Gulls.

by Graham Seal
'That's right, love everyone. I don't want your Christian love, Slade. It stinks. Why don't you just admit you hate me?'
Two men - just two men cooped up together in a small hut in a wilderness of snow. They're there to do a job but living like this does something to a man-it makes him act like an animal.

(David Graham is in "The Resistible Rise of Arturo Ui" at the Saville Theatre, London)
