This contains an underlying verity known to the canny and cautious people of East Anglia for thousands of years. 'Scientists,' says yet another Voice of Authority voice-over, 'have spent many years watching the people of our planet, trying to find the fundamental things that make us tick.' They didn't get far, apparently, until the astronauts went up and saw the one man-made achievement visible from space - the Great Wall of China. Then all became clear. 'The most basic instinct known to man - is to protect.' In other words, to be an East Anglian actuary.
