BBC WORLD (article first published : 2003-10-24)

Among the highlights of BBC World on DStv are two programmes dealing with the search for gold.

In Shakers on October 24 at 21h30, the scientists turned gold prospectors continue their epic search for gold in the wilds of New Zealandís South Island. Presenter Kate Humble struggles with the team as they battle to extract enough gold to make a souvenir by the end of the series. To add to the half a gram they extracted in the first week, they adopt increasingly bizarre methods to get rich and solve science puzzles.

On October 31 at 21h30 in Quakers, the scientists continue to look for gold in New Zealand, following in the footsteps of the original prospectors from 1860. Ellen McCallie helps make a waterproof tent to keep Mike Bullivant and Mike Leahy dry on their overnight expedition in search of gold-bearing rock. And Kathy Sykes and Jonathan Hare make a seismograph using alarm clocks to measure earthquake activity in the area.
