The Panama Canal was opened in 1914-the first man-made link between the Atlantic and the Pacific. For more than 50 years it has handled the ever-increasing traffic of world shipping. Today it can no longer cope. The modern solution is to cut another canal with nuclear explosives.
Five nations are now involved in the search for a new route. Their final decision will involve not just politics and economics but the social problems of the peoples who live there.
The Golden Isthmus is the story of 450 years of man's efforts to bridge the Atlantic and Pacific oceans and of the native peoples who have had to suffer them. Written and narrated by DAVID HOWARTH

Mussorgsky's Pictures at an Exhibition was inspired by the pictures of Victor Hartmann , most of which are now lost. The director of Musicamera, BARRIE GAVIN , has used his impressions of the music to guide the camera towards new images - among them a shopping precinct, a boutique, a power station, and an atomic research laboratory.
The film thus becomes a composition in its own right - not solely an accompaniment to the music. But is it right to make use of someone's music in this way?
This repeat showing of Musicamera is preceded by an examination of some of these issues. with Bernard Keeffe talking to
