Tonight we hear about bats:
Brett Westwood investigates our obsession with bats, at a Gothic mansion at night where bats swirl around him. From Dracula to Batman and Goth, bats have infiltrated our culture and our psyches, despite thepersisting sense that they are in some way alien and unknowable.
But they are in fact one of our most successful and social mammals, and those who work with them have a passion for them.
