This week's programme in the series on Man and Science today.

"I like these large spiders. I think because they are large. They are very fine looking creatures and you can get very attached to them. They can be kept as pets." - Douglas Clark, Department of Zoology

The Natural History Museum is a place of enthusiasts: the hundreds of children who swarm through the public galleries each day and the 350 naturalists employed by the museum. Their job is to look after and do research on one of the largest collections of living organisms in the world.
Tonight's programme is a chance to look behind the scenes of a well-known institution. It is also about the public who visit it and the people who work there.

In Britain at the outset of the First World War the services of trained medical women were rejected by the War Office. Serbia, with its thousands of wounded, few doctors, and no nurses, gladly welcomed them.
There are a few of those women for whom the years with the Serbian Army are still vivid. In this film four of them remember the struggle to care for the wounded in overcrowded hospitals; the typhus epidemic which swept the country and claimed some of their own comrades; the great retreat across the Albanian mountains in winter. Taking part: Dr Katharine Macphail, Anna Christitch, Francesca Wilson, Dorothy Newhall.
