The Hi-Tech Trail to Moscow
Ironically, some of the most lethal weapons aimed at us by the Russians contain key components designed here in the West. To acquire western high technology the Russians are waging an intensive campaign of illegal purchase, smuggling and spying. Above all, they rely on greedy middlemen. Michael Cockerell has traced the hi-tech trail and talked to the dealers in embargoed strategic goods-some on the run from the law, others facing long prison terms.

The third of four programmes starring Peter O'Toole as General Flavius Silva
Peter Strauss as Eleazar Ben Yair Barbara Carrera as Sheva David Warner as Falco
3: Silva has failed to conquer Masada in the allotted six months ordered by the Roman Senate. While the rebels have been living in comparative ease in their mountain fortress, the Tenth Legion has suffered a number of disasters and progress on building the assault ramp with slave labour is painfully slow.
But the sinister arrival of Falco, a scheming upstart from Rome, is to herald a new and dreadful reign of terror.

The second series of The Computer Programme
7: Sounds Interesting
Most modern personal computers can produce sounds of some kind - including music and speech. Ian McNaught-Davis and musician David Ellis investigate the making of simple and more sophisticated sounds, and they examine the elements of a music editor - the musical equivalent of a word processor. The programme also begins to look at languages other than BASIC.
