What really happened on the River Kwai? In this programme, John Coast , author and ex-pow, revisits the scenes of his enforced labour, together with three of his former Japanese captors.
We see the place where, 30 years ago, thousands of British lives were sacrificed by the Japanese to drive a railway line through the jungle from Bangkok to Burma. If it hadn't been for the famous film few people would remember their epic struggle for survival. But ironically, just because of the film, fact and fiction have become confused.
Tonight's documentary is a personal and evocative account of just what did happen during the building of this infamous railway.

A study in puzzles you can do and puzzles you can't
String, scissors, paper and pencil will be useful if you want to join in - but you can just sit back and feel superior as Ian McNaught -Davis tries out his favourite puzzles on a group of children. Mac, best known on TV for climbing the Old Man of Hoy and the Eiffel Tower, has been passionately keen on puzzles for the last 30 years. The children were intrigued by his selection of puzzles and games - they argued, sweated away, cracked ' some of them and got frustrated by others.
