This program explores some historical and modern day work roles for horses. Four different horses are observed working with their handlers. The programs look at the physical and mental characteristics of horses that help them in their work and the way handlers value their horses and communicate with them. Through the use of historic footage and photos the program looks at life before cars and shows why some ways of using working horses have changed from the past to the present day and that horses are still bettter than machines for some forms of work. The program also explains and demonstrates some basic safety rules that should be observed when around horses. The lives of working animals are explored in these two episodes. Programs highlight the special features of animals that can make them more suited to certain tasks than people or machines and that, like all good working relationships, these ones are based on clear communication and mutual respect. For the Juniors, for students aged 6-8 years, aims to stimulate children's curiosity and imagination, widen their horizons and encourage them to explore their environment, present enjoyable experiences which relate broadly to the lives and interests of the children and raise issues.

Successive shots of the same locations at different times of the year illustrate the changing life cycle of trees, from green growth through to autumn leaves and bare branches. Children talk about the different foods they like to eat when it's cold. Finally, viewers are shown how to read and interpret temperature using a thermometer.
Different scenarios encourage young viewers to think about how rain affects them. We explore different ways to predict rain, and learn about the water cycle with the aid of a simple graphic. Successive shots showing dams, a reservoir and a creek, at different times of the year, illustrate how rain can change the water level in some places. Learn how daily and seasonal changes in our environment affect everyday life.
We visit a city beach and see some of the activities that happen before most people arrive - rubbish collection, a beach cleaning machine in action, lifeguards checking for the safest part of beach.
This program looks at how mangroves have adapted to their wet, salty, tidal environment. We find that mangroves are also essential for many creatures like prawns, crabs and fish.
In this program we look at how animals breathe in water, how the sea changes as we go deeper, how people get to see what is below the surface of the sea and some of the plants and animals that live in the sea and how they survive.
This program shows how milk gets from the cow to the table. To produce milk cows need lush green grass and a calf, as they produce milk as food for their calves.

What do we do every day to look after our body?
