Microsculpture is a ground breaking project by the British photographer Levon Biss that presents insect specimens from the Oxford University Museum of Natural History like never before. These images reveal an unexpected and often breathtaking beauty and make visible the many intricate adaptations to the form of insects - what entomologists call their microsculpture. Formed at scales too tiny for us to perceive and with astonishing complexity, the true structure and beauty of insects remains mostly hidden. Their intricate shapes, colours and microsculpture are dizzying in their variety, but it takes the power of an optical microscope or camera lens to experience insects at their own scale.

Ethiopia Rising: Red Terror to Green Revolution
Ethiopia – rarely on our TV screens unless it’s news of drought and famine. But this film tells a different story - a story of restored life and renewed hope. Using dramatic reconstruction and documentary footage it shows what is possible when the people from a remote village in the far north of the country decide to stay on and transform their land. Under the leadership of 'The Man of Fire', we witness their incredible struggle for survival in the midst of endless droughts and a brutal civil war.
