The program is called ‘Our fascinating world.” You will hear what three different radio guests have to say about three diferent topics. Each talk lasts about 24-3 minutes. As you listen, you may want to take some notes to help you remember information given inthe tak. After each speaker talks, you will be asked some questions about what was said. From the three answer choices given, you should choose the one which best answers the question, ‘according to the information you heard. Remember, no problem can be repeated. For problems 36 through 50, mark your answers on the separate answer sheet. Do you have any questions? ‘Segment | F: We are destroying our forests at on alarming rate. Forests are important on many counts — they are known os the ‘lungs" of the planet, soaking up carbon dioxide and giving off oxygen in return. They also provide food and shelter to countless thousands of species of insects and to ‘many, many mammals. More on this from our guest, 0 world-famous presenter of natural history programmes. M: A third of the Earth's land is stil covered by trees of one kind or another ~ so, not unexpectedly, mammals belonging to very different families have managed to acquire the skills and physical adaptations required to feed there. There's a greater variety of food in the tropical rain forest than anywhere else in the natural world. One obvious source of food of course is leaves but the fact of the matter is that leaves aren't really very good food — they're rather tough, they're indigestible and actually they don’t contain much nutriment. But there's a lot more thon leaves to eat up there. If you're fast and agite enough you can catch birds but if you're not ~ well ~ some birds make their nests here and then eggs and chicks make 0 good and easy meal ‘And then there are brightly coloured fruits with fleshy coverings which are sufficiently good enough to eat to persuade animals of all kinds to swallow them and so distibute the seeds. If you're going to stay up in the trees for o long time, you will need to drink ~ that, perhops surprisingly, is not necessarily « problem. Sometimes it’s even easier to get 0 dink up in the trees than itis down below. Vase plants are fall of water and sometimes these tiny ponds contain insect larvae and even fiogs ~ so there's plenty of protein as wel. Allin all the larder up in the forest canopy is far too rch to Jgnore and many mammals come up and feed up here. But 1no big mammal can spend its entire fife in a simple tree — they all have to move to find new sources of food. Descending one tree, moving across the ground and climbing Lup another is one method. But there is another more energy- efficient way — and that isto cross ffom one tree to another at the top, To find the supreme tree-traveler, we have to climb into the canopy of the forests of Southeast Asia. The forest is hhome to the fastest of all the flightless inhabitants of the canopy in the world. It’s so swift and so ogie it’s capable of catching birds in mid-air. Gibbons — not monkeys but small ‘apes. They're such skilled acrobats that they can change direction in mid-flow. We may be distantly related to the lesser apes but when you watch gibbons up in the branches you realise how il-equipped we are for life in the trees. Our forearms are too big, our shoulders and our hips are too inflexible and our coordination compared to gibbons is very poor. And they have one characteristic which we and indeed «all other primates lack — that isto say, a ball and socket joint in their wrists. I is that that allows them to perform such fantastic aerial aerobatics. Hurting through the ‘branches, hand over hand, isthe gibbon’s standard way of | getting oround. Life in the trees is 0 dangerous business — one serious ‘mistake is fkely to be your last. Mankind’s success started when its feet hit the ground and it stood up on its hind legs. But animals like the gibbon are proof that there's a very 00d living to be had up therein the trees. 36 F: Why do so many mammals climb trees in the topical rin forests? 37 F: In comparison to humans, what do gibbons possess? 38 F: What does the speaker say about trees? 39 F: What does he say about gibbons? 40 F: What problems are associated with eating leaves? Segment 2 M: Scientists ore constantly searching for fossis that wil help us understand the history of evolution. In some cases these fossils are millions of years old, as was the case with the coelacanth. Nobody expected to find a living specimen of coelacanth, but in the early twentieth century a sensational discovery was made, as our next speaker wil now explain, F: Since we were tracing the history of life, species that linked one great group of animals with another were very important elements in our story. Fossils of fish called ‘coelacanths had long been known in rocks 400 milion years ‘ld, Judging from their bones, they had stout fleshy bases to their fins and some scientists believed them to be very close to the first four-legged animals to craw/ out of the sea and Up on to the land. They were therefore a link to the fist ‘amphibians and thus to all terestral vertebrates, including ‘ourselves. When, in 1938, a South Affican trawler brought Lup one alive from @ depth of around 300 feet, it caused a scientific sensation. It was a monster, five feet long and ‘much bigger than its fossil relations which were no bigger than herrings. Sadly, it had been gutted and its entrails thrown away before any scientists saw it, so details of its soft parts that could not be reveoled by fossils stil remained Lunknown. in spite of an intensive search over many years no farther specimen was found. Unti, that is, another was fished up from the seas ‘round the Comoro Islands, off the Aftican coast of ‘Madagascar. Since then, two or three had been caught in the waters around the Comores which were cleary the coelacanth’s main home. But no one had succeeded in filming living example. It would be @ great coup for our programme, Life on Earth, if we could do so. Scones believed that he could. He was ~ and is ~ one of the most experienced underwater cameramen with an extraordinary skill in devising special equipment for particular jobs. All the specimens, like the first, had been caught at depths of around 300 feet. That was beyond the range of ‘scuba diver but well within reach of an underwater camera, Peter's idea was to lower o remotely-controlled video camera ‘on a long cable in the area off the Comores where most specimens had been caught. It seemed worth a try. There ‘were other things of interest to us on the islands as well ~ 0 particularly photogenic colony of fruit bats, and some lemurs ~s0 whatever happened, a vst to the Comores would be worthwhile The Comores, we discovered, were not at that time politically stable. There had been a series of bloodless revolutions and it was difficult to find out who wos actualy in chorge. Eventually we contacted helpful people on the Islands and in due course, Peter and {arrived in Moroni, the copital. Most of the coelacanths that had been caught had been hooked at right, when they probably came up from greater depths in order to feed. So that was the time we went out to look for them. Every evening we left harbour in a launch. When we reached the area recommended by the local fishermen, Peter lowered his camera, with lights ‘attached, and we ail gathered around a monitor in the stereo to watch what it might reveal Things did not look promising. Any idea that o group of these prehistoric monsters would appear out of the gloomy depths and swim into the beam of our lights to take bait was soon seen to be wildly optimistic. The sea was too deep for us to anchor, and there was a strong current. So ail our video camera revealed was the sea floor moving steadily past at two or three miles an hour. Even if we were to catch «a glimpse of coelacanth maping around on the bottom, we would be swept post it before we could get a good look at it. Nonetheless, we persisted. ‘Although the sea floor was largely flat, in places there were rocky reefs. As soon os we spotted one ahead on the ‘monitor, we had to hau! in the cable so that the camera, as the current took us towards the reef, would rise above it and ‘not get tangled. The line was so long that it took some seconds before even the most frantic hauling on the boat, hod any effect. The end was inevitable. n the fifth night, we saw a huge reef coming. We hauled in the cable as quickly a we could but not quickly enough. The camera swept the boat on, white lines zigzagged over the television picture and then the monitor went blank. The cable had broken. And that, it seemed, was that. 4l M: What kind of onimal is a coelacanth? a2 M: Why was it so important for the makers of this ‘programme to locate a coelacanth? 4B M: Why was the coelacanth found by the South African trawler of litle use to scientists? “4 M: How did they plan to film a living example of coelacanth? 45 M: What was the main problem they encountered while firing? ‘Segment 3 F: Very few marine creatures can venture above the limit of the highest tide and survive. Turtles, however, are compelled +0 do so by their ancestry, as our final speaker will now explain M: Turtles are descended from lond-tving air breathing tortoises, and have, over the millennia, become superb swimmers, able to dive beneath the surface for long periods without drawing breath, propelling themselves at great speed with legs that have been modified into long broad flippers. But their eggs, like all repiion eggs, can only develop and hatch in cit. Their developing embryos need gaseous axygen to breathe, and without it they wil suffocate and dle. So every year, the adult female turtles, having mated at sea, must leave the sofety of the open ocean and visit ry land. Ridleys, one of the smallest of the sea-going turtles, ‘averaging about 60 centimetres in length, breed in vast congregations that must surely constitute one of the most ‘astounding sights inthe animal world. On one or two remote beaches in Mexico and Costa Rica, on a few nights between ANSWER KEY ‘August and November which scientists so far have been 8 unable to prédict, hundreds of thousands of tures emerge Tfoin the water and advance up the beach. They-have-the lungs and the watertight skin bequeathed them by their fand-tving ancestors so they are in no danger of either suffocation or desiccation, but their fippers are il-suited to life out of water. But nothing stops them. They struggle upwards until at last they reach the head of the beach just below the ie of permanent vegetation. There they begin digging their nest hole. So tightly packed are they that they clamber over one another in their attempts to find o suitable site, As they dig, sweeping ther fippers back and forth, they scatter sand over one another and slap each others’ shes When at last each turtle completes her hole, she lays about a hundred eggs in it, carefully covers it over, and returns to the sea. The laying continues for three or four rights in succession during which time over 100,000 Ridleys ‘may visita single beach. The eggs take forty-eight days to hatch but often before they can do so, a second army of turtles arrives. Again the beach is covered with crowing reptiles. As the newcomers dig, many inadvertently excavate 4 Q, ‘ond destroy the eggs laid by their predecessors and the beach becomes strewn with parchment-ike egg-coverings «and rotting embryos. Less than one in 500 of the eggs lid om the beach survives long enough to produce a hatchling The factors that govern this mass breeding ore stil not _propeily understood. le may be thot al the Rileys come to these very few beaches simply because ocean currents happen to sweep them passively in that direction. It could ‘also be advantogeous for them to nest thousands at a time, since if they spaced out their visits more evenly throughout the year, the beaches would attrac large permanent populations of predators such as crabs, snakes, iguanas and vultures. As iti, there is litle to eat there for most of the year, so very few such creatures ate there when the turtles rive. If this is the reason for the habit, it seems to have been effective, for Ridleys in both the Pacific and the Atlantic ‘are among the commonest of all turtles while many other species are now diminishing in numbers and some are in danger of extinction. 46 F: Why do turtles have to leave the sea to lay their eggs? 47 F: Why aren't the turtles in danger of desiccation when they leave the sea? 48 F: What do scientists know about the tutes’ breeding season? 49 F: What happens when the second ormy of turtles arrive? 50 F Why are there few predators waiting for the turtles?

Segment | F: Around fifty years ago, Francis Crick walked into a bar with his collaborator James Watson and announced, ‘We have discovered the secret of life.’ Let us hear more about that famous discovery now, fiom today’s fist guest speaker. (UM: In. 1962, James Watson, Francis Crick, and Maurice Wilkins together received the Nobel Prize for their discovery, in 1953, of the structure of DNA. Their colleague, Rosalind Franklin, had died of cancer in 1958. The discovery of the structure of DNA has revolutionized science. Without it, some of the most promising and ‘controversial areas of medicine, including genetic screening and human cloning, would never have been possible. DNA, the molecule which lays down the blueprint for every living organism, contains the patterns for constructing proteins in the body. It was discovered that DNA consists of double helxes, that i, two chains twisted round each other of alternating phosphate and sugar groups. The two chains ‘are held together by hydrogen bonds between pairs of organics bases ~ adenine with thiamine and guanine with ‘ftosine. The discovery of the structure of DNA, as I have pg Mutonet brug abou ere andestanding of heresy and hereditary disease. . The background forthe work of the fur sciests wos formed by sever! scentfic breaktvoughs the progress ‘made by X-ray crystallographers; the growing evidence Supplied by geneticists that it was DNA, not poten in chromosomes tat was responsible for heredity; and Linus Pauling’s discovery that the molecules of some proteins hove helical shapes. Of the four DNA researchers, only Rosalind Franklin had university degrees in chemistry. She went to work in King’s Colege, London, where she met Maurice Wilkins, «nuclear psc He hod worked in te US But had become Gsilusioned, ke others, when Hs subject wos applied to the creation of the atomic bomb. He turned instead to biophysics. Ie was Wilkins" idea to study DNA by X-ray + crystallographic techniques ‘Meanwhile, 23.year-old James Watson, a Chicago-born ‘Aimerican,anived in Cambridge. He heard Wiki tlk on the molecular structure of DNA and saw his recent X-ray photographs of DNA — and was hooked. Francis Crick, tater physi in biology, wos supposed tobe writing 0 dissertation on the X-ray crystallography of hemoglobin when James Watson arrived, eager to recruit a colleague for work on DNA. Watson ond Crick ropily put together several models of DNA and etempted to incorporate al the evidence they could gather. Watson and Crick were quick to cli ced forthe discovery of the double helix structure of DNA but they have been accused of belittling the work of Rosalind Franklin, whose X-ray photographs of the DNA molecule 4 &€ crucial. Watson was shown Fronklin’s work, without her “eiiede, by her superior Wikns, wth whom the pair ‘eventually shared the Nobel Prize but he has never accepted thot she played an equl role.

Segment 2 M: Genetically modified food has emerged in a relatively short time os one of the most controversial topics of public debate. Food, after all, affects everyone. It can be a highly emotive subject, especially if something hoppens to threaten cur sense of security about it. More about this from our next speaker. F.1d lke to stort by clspeling some of the misconceptions about the nature of food, digestion and existing practices, as well as about genetics. Humans, like all other animals, abtain the basic materials for bodily growth and maintenance from complex chemical materials ke proteins, fats, carbohydrates — in other words, food. These chemicals are broken down by normal digestive processes into relatively simple components, which ore re-sytesized into complex molecules within our bodies. In thot one sense, we are what we eat. Some of our food contains the DNA of plonts,
