At Borough Farm, on the rugged, spectacularly beautiful North Devon coast, David Kennard and his dogs are embarking on a new shepherding year. The twelve months ahead will present David and his working sheepdogs Greg, Swift, Gail, Fern and Ernie, with a never-ending series of challenges: from rescuing ewes stranded on the Atlantic cliffs to running the gauntlet of psychopathic rams and officious farm inspectors; from spring lambing and summertime shearing to fending off the ever-present threats nature has in store for the 850-strong flock. All this, in the midst of a harsh economic climate for farming and a landscape that is among the most picturesque, yet wildly unpredictable, in the British Isles.

The power of the sun by John Perlin( Visual )

7 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 181 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Power of the Sun" tells the story of how the ideas and the technology to tap the sun's rays as a source of clean, safe, and renewable energy were first developed. Presented in an understandable and entertaining way, the film explains Einstein's theory of light as packets of energy, called photons, and the development of the photovoltaic cell as a practical, increasingly efficient converter of light into electrical energy. The history of manufacturing silicon-based photovoltaic cells and the development of solar panels are also examined. The second film, "The Power of the Sun: The Science of the Silicon Solar Cell," is an explanation of a solar cell and how it functions. The film is aimed at science teachers who are working with 12th graders or college freshmen in the areas of chemistry and/or physics, materials science, and engineering
