Two years ago, the Conservatives seemed set to change the whole basis of Government financial involvement in industry.

Long before the Normans invaded Britain, Maya astronomers, mathematicians and architects dominated the jungle of Central America with their brilliant, mysterious civilisation.
After the Spanish Conquest the Maya and their monuments were engulfed by the rain forest; now dealers and museums have been joined by looters for the remaining treasures.
In this Chronicle film Dr Eric Thompson, the foremost living expert on the Maya, returns to explore their lost world and to see the effect of a new and violent wave of looting.
