'Lilli Marlene,' the song which marched with the troops through the Second World War and is still played today to soldiers in Vietnam. Perhaps the greatest European hit of all time, it has crossed every frontier, in war and peace, since it was written over half-a-century ago. It's a success story full of surprises.

Although the French advance was nearing Moscow, Countess Rostova refused to leave until she heard from Petya. The Russian army was committed to battle against the French at Borodino, and at the end of the day both sides withdrew exhausted- Andrei having been badly wounded.

Barclay de Tolly:
Sheffield and Rotherham, major ports with direct access to Europe. Watford, the ocean-going terminal of the M1. Plans that could become reality if Britain used her waterways properly.
In Europe, canals carry bulk goods at low cost and ease congestion on the roads. Old canals are improved, new ones built. Soon it will be possible for sea-going barges to travel the 2,175 miles from Rotterdam to the Black Sea. But in England, where loaded barges are already arriving direct from Europe, the canal systems can't cope.
On the eve of entry into the Common Market, Horizon compares at first-hand the waterways of Britain and Europe and asks isn't it time we took our canals seriously?

A new film by David Cobham
The dramatic story of a manhunt which took place between the spring of 1931 and 17 February 1932 in the frozen Far North of Canada.
The Royal Canadian Mounties - using nine dog teams and, for the first time in history, two-way radio and an aeroplane, armed with guns and dynamite - took 54 days to track the man down. To this day no one knows who the man was. He wanted to be alone, to speak to no one. And they called him the Mad Trapper.
Music composed and played by:
The Mad Trapper:
Georgia Brown tackles a wide range of songs, from a Cockney medley to the Soul of 'Ain't no sunshine,' from Jacques Brel's 'Fils de' to Randy Newman's 'Mama told me not to come.'
