La nuit est si belle
Et je suis si seule
Je n'ai pas envie de mourir
Je veux encore chanter
Danser et rire

Je ne veux pas mourir
Avant d'avoir aimé

Pour celui qu'on aime
Plus que l'amour même
Sans rien attendre en retour

De choisir sa vie
Sans un anathème
Sans un interdit

Sans Dieu ni patrie
Avec pour seul baptème
Celui de l'eau de pluie

Pour celui qu'on aime
Plus que l'amour même
Sans rien attendre en retour

Ces deux mondes qui nous séparent
Un jour seront-ils réunis?
Oh je voudrais tellement y croire
Meme s'il me faut donner ma vie
Donner ma vie
Pour changer l'histoire

Pour celui qu'on aime
Plus que l'amour même
Sans rien attendre en retour

Comme la nuit aime le jour
Jusqu'à en mourir d'amour
Jusqu'à en mourir d'amour

Life on Earth - Episode 04 - The Swarming Hordes

"This fourth episode details the relationship between flowers and insects. There are some one million classified species of insect, and two or three times as many that are yet to be labeled. Around 300 million years ago, plants began to enlist insects to help with their reproduction, and they did so with flowers. Although the magnolia, for instance, contains male and female cells, pollination from another plant is preferable as it ensures greater variation and thus evolution. Flowers advertise themselves by either scent or display. Some evolved to produce sweet-smelling nectar and in turn, several insects developed their mouth parts into feeding tubes in order to reach it. However, to ensure that pollination occurs, some species — such as the orchid — have highly complicated mechanisms that must be negotiated first. Others, such as the yucca and its visiting moths, are dependent on one another. Hunters, such as the mantis, are camouflaged to match the flowers and leaves visited by their prey. Since an insect’s skin is chitinous, it has to shed it periodically in order to grow, and the caterpillar, its chrysalis or cocoon and resulting butterfly or moth is one of the more complex examples. Termites, ants and some bees and wasps overcame any limitations of size by grouping together and forming superorganisms. The green tree ants of south-east Asia are shown to display the most extraordinary co-operation when building their nests."

A War On Science (Intelligent Design and Dover)

"There is a war going on against science and reason. The pseudoscience of "Intelligent Design" is attacking the Darwinian Theory of Evolution, and trying to inject God into science."

Rageh Inside Iran

"Rageh Omaar embarks on a unique journey inside what he describes as one of the most misunderstood countries in the world, looking at the country through the eyes of people rarely heard - ordinary Iranians.

"It took a year of wrangling to get permission to film inside Iran but the result is an amazing portrayal of an energetic and vibrant country that is completely different to the usual images seen in the media. A country of contrasts

"Rageh soon discovers that Tehran is a complex place and uncovers a city of extremes of wealth and poverty, where some people survive on less than a dollar a day and others shop till they drop in glitzy shopping malls.

"Iran is a country that bans women from riding motorcycles but where 60 per cent of the student population is female. It is also a youthful place, with two thirds of Iran's 70 million population under the age of 30. Local stories

"Rageh meets with local people to hear their personal stories and feelings about the current state of affairs in Iran. There are stories of taxi drivers, wrestlers, business women, people working with drug addicts and the country's leading pop star and his manager - the 'Simon Cowell' of Iran.

"Rageh Inside Iran transcends images of angry demonstrations and burning flags to reveal a country that isn't without its problems but which is also fascinating, dynamic and hospitable."

Henry Lincoln - The Shadow of the Templars (1979)

"Bérenger Saunière didn't just redecorate his church. He filled it with esoteric symbolism - statuary and paintings that hint at alchemy, heresy and the occult. Every embellishment in his church at Rennes-le-Château seems like a clue in a great treasure hunt that points - unequivocally - to the countryside around Rennes-le-Chateau itself. No-one knows for sure whether Bérenger Saunière found treasure or not, or what that treasure may have been, but the clues he deliberately planted have created a fascinating and enduring enigma.

"Henry Lincoln was intrigued by the story. He was also amazed to discover, hidden in the reproductions of the parchments in that little paperback book, cryptic clues that were not referred to in the text. These clues led to many new and fascinating lines of inquiry, including links to the Knights Templar and the Cathars. Eventually his researches led to the production of a BBC TV documentary, 'The Lost Treasure of Jerusalem?', in 1972. This was followed two years later by a second film, 'The Priest, the Painter and the Devil' and in 1979 by a third, 'The Shadow of the Templars'."
