Lord Robert Stanford:
Grand Duke Ivan:
"I am, in fact, extremely angry with _ His Majesty, and I intend to do him harm." Prior to last week's aside to the viewing audience, Prime Minister
Francis Urquhart had publicly pretended to take a more temperate stance towards the King's attack on his policies.
In this week's episode of Michael Dobbs 's political thriller, the antagonism between the caring King (Michael Kitchen ) and his callous Prime Minister
(Ian Richardson ) develops into full confrontation, as Urquhart accuses the King of trying to organise a bloodless coup againstthe government.
Dramatised by Andrew Davies

Return to the Sacred Ice
In the second of an Everyman series of four modern pilgrimages,
Nicholas Shakespeare goes to the Andes in Peru, where the beliefs of imported Christianity blend with the rituals of Inca religion. Each year, to commemorate a miracle in which Christ appeared to a boy herding alpacas, thousands of people dance and sing their way to
Q'olloritti, a mountain 16,000 feet above sea level that stands in the shadow of a glacier.
Numb from the music, local beer and the fatigue of three days and nights without rest,
Shakespeare watches the secret ceremonies and ritual battles.

Series producer Sally Doganis
