Stark though it was in many respects, in The Vanishing Face of Gaia, Lovelock says that though the weather currently seems cooler and pollution lessens as the recession bites, the environmental problems we will face in the 21st century are even more terrifying than he previously realised. The Arctic and Antarctic icecaps are melting very quickly, and water shortages and natural disasters are more common occurrences than at any time in recent
In "Organic Gardening", Charles Dowding, who started the first vegetable box scheme in 1983, shares the philosophy, tips and techniques which have enabled him to run a successful organic garden supplying local restaurants and shops for over 25 years. Forget the rules: 'received wisdom' about gardening is surprisingly inaccurate. Understand better what is going on in the soil and with your plants, in your own garden and climate, and work out your own methods instead. Respect and encourage life as much as you can, chiefly by spreading good compost or manure. There is no need to dig in compost and manure - just spread it on top and let worms take it in. More

Accompanied by both professional palaeontologists and amateur enthusiasts, David Attenborough returns to the quarries where he hunted for fossils as a boy, and visits fossil-rich sites all over the world. He looks at the problems associated with reconstructing an animal from a fossil, and explains the huge role now played by animations, computer graphics and articulated models. Dramatic dinosaur finds shed light not only on how these incredible creatures looked, but how they fed, hunted, courted, bred, called to each other and cared for their young. The biggest dinosaur question, of course, remains unanswered - David Attenborough asks why, after dominating the planet for over 160 million years, the dinosaurs became extinct? From landscapes covered in shards of dinosaur egg shell, to sites where animals and plants have been fossilised to give a detailed picture of the whole environment, David Attenborough travels the world opening windows onto worlds and lives that would otherwise be lost for good.

Africa is the mother continent - the core from which all the other continents were torn away 270 million years ago. Since then, three factors have had profound consequences on its wildlife. This mighty block of land has stayed in much the same place, it stands alone and it straddles the equator. It's also been protected from crippling ice ages and destructive invasions as well as nurtured by gentle changes in climate and geology. As a result, animals and plants have flourished here more successfully than on any other continent. This is Africa - rich, diverse and fascinating - and the heart of the world. Time is the key to our series. Influenced by climate and geology, time has allowed Africa to accumulate the breathtaking variety of wildlife we see today. The series covers Jungle, Coasts, Mountains, Deserts, Savannahs and Rivers & Lakes as the topic of each episode. More
