The World of Blaster Bates
' When you drive around with half a hundredweight of jelly in the boot, you have to laugh or you'd be round the twist and on sunflower seeds.'
'BLASTER' BATES is not only one of Britain's leading demolition experts, but also an inspired comedian - calling on his wealth of experience as a blaster.
Much of his time when he's not blasting down chimneys or redundant buildings is spent in describing his exploits to a convulsed gathering.

The Hunting of the Quark
No one knows for sure what quarks are because no one has yet found one. Some physicists believe though that they might be the first particles to be created after the big bang beginning of the universe - and that is why quarks might be very important. The search for the existence of the quarks is one of the most intriguing detective stories of science. It exercises the minds of the world's leading physicists who are attempting to take matter apart and look back at the very early stages of creation. Why do they do it? Curiosity-the sheer excitement of discovery and of finding beauty and unity in nature at its most fundamental level. Narrator PAUL VAUGHAN
