With the recent Sea Empress oil-spill disaster still fresh in people's minds, Andrew Cooper explores the history of man's often destructive influence on the natural world of the sea and Channel shores in the last of the series. Excavations, fishing nets, the increased volume of shipping and even clean-up operations have detrimental effects on wildlife.

This documentary film captures the distinctive sights and sounds of the species that inhabit an estuary in winter. The behavioural patterns of wildlife in the area are dictated by the tides. See today's choices.

Being There 8.00pm BBC2

The aim of this documentary is to give viewers the sense of really "being there" ("there" being an estuary in winter). So the programme makers have relied on the sounds of wildlife to evoke the atmosphere of this constantly changing habitat and show how life revolves around the daily tidal cycle. There is only sparse narration (from Tom Conti) and muted music.

The footage (taken by cameraman Ian McCarthy of the Life in the Freezer team) features many natural spectacles caused by the tide including seals bracing themselves for a storm and dense swarms of tiny waders twisting and turning in a dramatic orange sky.
