Evidence of Neglect
In fireproof vaults, millions of feet of film shot on nitrate stock in the first half of this century are decomposing - their images in danger of being lost for ever.
In publishing houses, the paper deliberately chosen to print the written word since the end of the last century is destroying itself at a steady rate.
In dealers' galleries, maps and the historical record which accompanied them have been systematically separated to satisfy enthusiasts, collectors and the demands of the marketplace.
Where will the destruction lead?
Peter France introduces three films which examine the ways our historical record is under attack. Producers MICHAEL TOSH

visits the Isles of Scilly
For the first of this series of brief musical tours, Barbara chooses this small group of islands west of Cornwall.
Although less than 30 miles from Land's End, they're giant leagues apart from the mainland in atmosphere and lifestyle.
Barbara's songs take you around some of the fine unspoilt scenery and she chats to a few of the independently minded islanders.
