Whatever Happened to Afghanistan?
A year ago the rumble of Russian tanks invading Afghanistan was met by a chorus of condemnation from around the world. Jeremy Paxman reports from the Afghanistan-Pakistan border on what has happened since - the military and diplomatic price the Russians are paying, the effectiveness of Afghan guerrilla warfare and the plight of more than a million Afghan refugees. With the use of exclusive film, photographs and the testimony of recent refugees, he pieces together a picture of life in Kabul under Russian occupation.

On 27 June 1976 an Air France plane on a flight from Paris to Tel Aviv was hijacked by a group of terrorists. The passengers' ordeal lasted for seven days until their dramatic rescue by Israeli commandos. This dramatisation vividly conveys the tension of the human drama aboard the aircraft and the political tension in Jerusalem and Tel Aviv.
