In Parenthesis is considered one of the greatest ever literary works about war. TS Eliot called it a work of genius and WH Auden said it did for the British and Germans what Homer did for the Greeks and Trojans. Published in 1937, it is based intimately on the wartime experiences of its author David Jones, a Londoner who volunteered to fight when he was just 19. Unlike many war poets, Jones remained a private throughout the war, and he fought for longer than any other British writer. In this programme, the poet and author Owen Sheers traces the story of In Parenthesis, from an English parade ground to the carnage of the Somme offensive.

Dr George McGavin investigates the highly varied and dramatic life of oak tree. Part science documentary, part historical investigation, this film is a celebration of one of the most iconic trees in the British countryside. It aims to give viewers a sense of what an extraordinary species the oak is and provide an insight into how this venerable tree experiences life. Filmed over a year, George uncovers the extraordinary transformations the oak goes through to meet the challenges of four very different seasons. In autumn, George goes underground, digging below an oak tree to see how its roots extract precious resource form the soil. And he sees why the oak's super-strong wood made it the perfect material for building some the most famous ships in naval history, including Nelson's flagship The Victory. In winter, George discovers the sophisticated strategies the tree uses to survive gales and bitter frosts. He finds out about the oak's vital role in architecture, showing how some very familiar sights such as the tower of Salisbury Cathedral are in fact giant oak structures. In spring, George investigates how the oak procreates, spreading its pollen through the countryside.
