White Rock, Black Water A view of the Dales with Richard Mabey
The white rock is limestone, the raw stuff of the pyramids. The black water is the rain and rivers that, in the Yorkshire Dales, have carved out a fantastic, intricate world of caves, cliffs and natural pavements, carpeted with some of Britain's most exquisite flowers. The backdrop is The Hill,
Ingleborough, and a blend of rolling fells, drystone walls and field barns - scenery that is distinctive enough for the whole area to be designated a National Park.
This is a personal appreciation of the history of the Dales, and how it has affected both local people and visitors; how quarrymen and cavers, farmers and rock gardeners, 18th-century painters and modern ramblers have all made their contribution to this remarkable landscape.

Australian Grand Prix
The 1985 Formula One World Championship ended early this morning in Adelaide - a new country and a new circuit in Grand Prix racing.

Australia has given the sport world champions
Jack Brabham and Alan Jones , but today the focus was on two other drivers.
Could Britain's NIGEL MANSEL win three in a row - or would World Champion ALAIN PROST end his season on a high note?
