On a remote strip of land some 100 miles off the coast of Nova Scotia roam the equine survivors of one of many wrecked sailing ships. Also the only breeding ground of the Ipswich sparrow, as well as the rare grey seal, this windswept wilderness affords a unique and fascinating opportunity to study long-isolated species.

2: Whitby, North Yorkshire
In Whitby, with its back to the moors and its face to the sea, a group of fishing families have shared the perils and the triumphs of a sea-faring life for centuries - families like the Storrs, the Leadleys and the Harlands.
Brian Trueman meets the old who tend the traditions of their fathers, the fishing boat skippers who count the cost of the present and fear for their sons, and the enthusiastic young who still talk with pride about following in their fathers' footsteps.
