A series of programmes on some of the most extraordinary facets of the animal world. with Tony Soper
1: Frontiers of Life
Living creatures occupy every crevice of the planet. And yet in the deserts of Arizona, the wastes of Greenland and deep in the caves of France, survival needs special outfits and skills. On these frontiers, there are fish without eyes, big beef dressed in duffle coats, and deadly snakes that keep their heads cool.

A series of six programmes 5: The Iron-Makers
I made a kind of pledge that I would be the last in the iron trade. That I would carry on as far as I jolly well could and make this my object in life - all I can say is that we are the last in the iron trade.'
(CYRIL WALMSLEY , iron-maker)
True wrought iron, the substance of the great works of Stephenson and Brunei, could only be made by hand. The last foundry in the world capable of making wrought iron was the Atlas Forge in Bolton. Here the iron puddler worked entirely by hand and eye, practising a skill which had defied successful mechanisation. The result was a metal of astonishing and unrivalled resilience.

North Western Colorado is a barren land of drought, blizzard and loneliness. It has been the home of dinosaurs, buffalos, Indians and cowboys. Now the cowboys are a dying breed. In this film, Bill Movers of WNET New York looks at two families living as close to the frontier as is possible in the second half of the 20th century. Monty Sheridan , 42-years-old and divorced, is the father of four children who work with him at the cowboys' jobs. Memford and Judy Beard are neighbours and friends. They share the hard work, the long days and the occasional visits to the dance hall in the town. But they love the life, the stubborn land, the outdoor work and the horses they chase and ride.
