When your instrument is church bells, how do you improve without driving everybody crazy? The next generation of ringers is coached in the art at Knox Metropolitan United in Regina. And -- an agricultural valley in Israel has the densest population of barn owls in the world -- raised and housed to kill rodent pests. Convinced by the success, Palestinians and Jordanians are bringing the project across the border. Queen Elizabeth II first saw the RCMP musical riders when she was eleven and has never forgotten. Tonight they ride in her Diamond Jubilee ceremony, by her invitation of course.
