In the warm waters of the Coral Sea, a long and bitter battle is waged -the endless struggle for survival. Sometimes it's beautiful, like the shoals of silver pilchards: sometimes pathetic, like the defenceless baby turtles.
Into this pattern of inter-dependence has come man, equipped with aqua-lung and explosive harpoon, and an endless thirst for knowledge. So he snares the poisonous sea-snake to discover the secret of its venom: dynamites the shark that could kill him.

This film is the work of the outstanding Australian underwater photographer and director, Ben Cropp: it captures beauty in the frond of coral, action in the excitement of a shark hunt: and deals with a subject of ever-increasing importance - man's place in, and destruction of his environment.

Edited and introduced by John Amis

The Netherlands Wind Ensemble directed by Edo De Waart play parts of the Octandre by Varese and the Octet by Stravinsky at Dartington and on Dartmoor.

Janet Baker talks and, with George Malcolm at the piano, sings songs by Duparc and Tippett. Sir Michael Tippett talks about his operas. Music Now went to a recording of The Midsummer Marriage with Joan Carlyle, Alberto Remedios, and Raimund Herincx. Covent Garden is soon premiering Sir Michael's new opera The Knot Garden, and a Blues from it, arranged for two pianos and percussion, will be played by John Constable, George Malcolm, and Keith Millar.
