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. 

Each series is arranged in groups of programs relating to a particular theme.

She may have been the greatest monarch that ever ruled England but from her very first breath to the day she died, Elizabeth was surrounded by enemies who threatened her crown and her life. In this episode, we see Elizabeth I crowned and battling to keep her crown and country together through 25 turbulent years. Although Elizabeth I would become one of Britain's most remarkable monarchs, her reign was never secure. From the moment she was anointed queen her enemies at home and abroad began to move against her. To foreign rivals she was a heretic and a bastard. At home her government was desperate to marry her off, to a man who could rule and provide the nation with an heir. Up in Scotland, her Catholic cousin Mary Queen of Scots had married and given birth to a boy - and rumour swirled that she was set to steal Elizabeth's crown. Soon, shocking scandals of adultery and murder swamped Mary, her marriage crumbled, and she fled to England desperate for her cousin's protection. But her claim to the English throne made her a threat to Elizabeth who had no choice but to imprison her. For 18 years Mary languished in jail while Elizabeth's enemies wanted her dead. It wasn't until Elizabeth's spymaster Sir Francis Walsingham had concrete proof that her life and her throne were at risk, that Elizabeth reluctantly put her cousin to death. But, just as she feared, Mary's execution inflamed her enemies and triggered the greatest threat of all: invasion.
