As the author of many classic works on science and philosophy, Richard Dawkins has always asserted the irrationality of belief in God and the grievous harm it has inflicted on society. He now focuses his fierce intellect exclusively on this subject, denouncing its faulty logic and the suffering it causes.

In the sixth of our series of bird guides, recorded on location on The Long Mynd in Shropshire, Brett Westwood and Stephen Moss are assisted by wildlife sound recordist Chris Watson as they present a guide to the appearance, behaviour, songs, and calls of the birds you may find around Britain's mountains and moorlands. Each programme focuses on a different habitat, starting with heather moors and birds such as Black Grouse and Merlin, before moving on to cliffs and crags (Raven and Peregrine); upland grasslands (Skylark and Curlew); bogs and mires (Golden Plover and Greenshank); and high tops (Ptarmigan and Snow Bunting).

Brett Westwood is joined by naturalist Phil Gates in this informative and entertaining guide to some of our common garden wildlife. Recorded in a garden near Bristol, each programme explores a different garden habitat; log piles, ponds, hedgerows, trees and shrubs, and finally stones. The presenters describe the appearance, behaviour and sounds of some of the typical species you're likely to find, explain their contribution to the ecology of the garden, and offer advice on how to entice them into your own garden.

Brilliant narration and sound recordings. I live near farmland and now feel i know a lot more about the birds around me and would be better at identifying them. :)

Join Brett Westwood and Stephen Moss in this fascinating guide to the sounds of our most popular coastal birds, as heard on BBC Radio 4.In the fourth of our series of bird guides, Brett Westwood is joined by keen birdwatcher Stephen Moss on the north coast of Devon, and with the help of wildlife sound recordist Chris Watson they offer a practical and entertaining guide to identifying many of the birds you’re likely to see and hear around Britain’s coastline.Each programme focuses on a different habitat, starting with estuaries and birds such as Redshank, Dunlin, Curlew and Knot, then sandy shores and birds including Common and Sandwich Tern; rocky shores (Rock Pipit, Turnstone), sea cliffs (Fulmar, Guillemot, Razorbill), and offshore islands (Puffin, Manx Shearwater and Arctic Tern).Listen to advice on how to recognise birds visually and how to identify them from their calls and songs. After all, often you’re more likely to hear a bird than see it!
