See how biotechnology is creating stronger crops, and visit Yellowstone Park for an up-close look at the aftermath of forest fires.

Since man first started to plant crops, they have been attacked by enemies from insects to drought and disease. Journey to South America to meet botanists who are studying how to grow stronger crops, and teaching farmers the best techniques for raising them.

Discover how THE SUPER SEEDS are engineered to resist the devastation caused by foes like locusts, and how advances in soil management and fertilizers promise to dramatically increase farmers' yields.

Then, visit Yellowstone National Park, which was ravaged by wildfires in 1988. FROM BENEATH THE ASHES shows how the park has recovered, becoming a perfect model of the role that fire plays in the ecology of the Western forests and prairies.

Yellowstone Chief of Research John Varley explains how the Park has been changed and shows the encouraging evidence of its rebirth as he leads a tour through the new growth in America's most famous National Park.
