The Lost Palaces of Nineveh
Thousands of years ago Nineveh was a great city, so large that it took Jonah three days to walk across it. Then the city fell into decay and vanished: even its whereabouts were forgotten. But 150 years ago the palaces of Nineveh were rediscovered and with them the whole history of the Kings of Assyria which had been lost for thousands of years. Today JOHN COSTON visits Baghdad and the river Tigris to tell the story of the once-great city of Nineveh. Storyteller

A Journey Back to Poland Written and narrated by Sir Hugh Greene
In September 1939, three British foreign correspondents based in Poland found themselves caught up in the outbreak of the war. By car, they travelled across Poland to escape into neutral Romania and flee the German blitzkrieg.
In the autumn of 1977 they returned once more to retrace their wartime footsteps and see how much of old Poland still remains. The three correspondents were Hugh Carleton-Greene and Clare Hollingworth of the Daily Telegraph, and Patrick Maitland of The Times. CLARE HOLLINGWORTH is now the Daily Telegraph's Defence Correspondent; SIR HUGH GREENE is now a publisher and brewer, and a former Director-General of the BBC; and PATRICK MAITLAND is now the Earl of Lauderdale.
