1: The Toolmaker
' Many people don' know what an edge tool's really for. They think it's anybody's job to make such a thing. Well it's not.'
(HAROLD POUND, Edge toolmaker)
HAROLD POUND works in a tiny forge in central London and has been in business as a toolmaker for over 60 years. Using an anvil made in 1784 and a lifetime of expert judgment, he makes with astonishing precision tools which have kept others in business, from sculptors and masons to woodcarvers and roadmen.

Animal Senses
Bees use their eyes to find flowers whereas flies find food by tasting it with their feet ... a fly can take off in one-tenth of a second but a mantis can catch it in one twenty-fifth of a second.
Discovering how animal sense organs function is important, for not only are they often superior to our own but they are the guides for the behaviour of the animals themselves.

The Immigrant Doctors
A patient admitted to a British hospital is almost certain to be treated at some stage by an immigrant doctor. There are now about 9,000 overseas doctors working in the National Health Service and they make up over a third of the staff in our hospitals. They fill the gap left by many British-trained doctors who practise abroad.
But is the style and standard of their previous training suited to treating patients here? And are the overseas doctors themselves getting the specialist training in medicine for which they have come to this country? Narrator PAUL VAUGHAN
Editor BRUCE NORMAN
