The Night's FilmLeave it to Beavers (60 minutes) - The fascinating story of beavers in North America - their history, near extinction, and current comeback, as a growing number of scientists, conservationists and grass-roots environmentalists have come to regard beavers as overlooked tools when it comes to reversing the disastrous effects of global warming and world-wide water shortages.

Hummingbirds: Magic in the Air (60 minutes) - Hummingbirds represent one of nature's most interesting paradoxes - they are the tiniest of birds, yet they qualify as some of the toughest and most energetic creatures on the planet.
