26 June 2004
Presented by Sandi Toksvig
Wherever you go in the world, however prolific the flora and fauna look, you can be sure that some of them are in danger and may not be there for future generations to see.
The two travellers on this weeks programme have spent their lives preserving the images of animals, which otherwise may be lost to our children.
