In an arid sand bowl amid towering cliffs, the spirits of the dead assemble and chatter. In this most holy desert, in the oven heat of day, John Romer , an Egyptologist, listens and feels the presence of the past.
Setting out on an energetic journey through ancient times, he scales the pyramids of Giza, shoots the cataracts of Aswan and ' dies' at Sakkara.
With passion and prejudice he explores and explains his view of the ancient civilisation: Romer's Egypt.

The first of six programmes Harold Williamson revisits Matthew - A Child Forever
As soon as Anne Crosby saw her newborn baby, she knew he was a mongol. She pleaded with the hospital not to keep him alive by mechanical means but they rushed him into intensive care. She wished her son would die, but they told her not to get hysterical and did everything to save his life. That was 17 years ago.
Today her son is a teenager with an infant's mind. She loves him - but, at the same time, she blames the hospital for what happened to her and her family and remains convinced he should have been allowed to die.

... and his Famous Orchestra A film portrait of Edward Kennedy Ellington 1899-1974
For half a century Duke Ellington led the most celebrated orchestra in the world, and kept it stocked with virtuosi in every section-Johnny Hodges , Harry Carney , Cootie Williams , Paul Gonsalves , Lawrence Brown.
Among his 5,000 compositions are all-time hits like 'Mood indigo', ' Sophisticated lady ', Solitude' and ' Satin doll' as well as major suites and tone poems. Yet behind the sophisticated front the man himself was an enigma, and during his lifetime he managed to resist close scrutiny of his complex personality. ' Too much talk,' he once said, stinks up the place '. Russell Davies presents this portrait of Duke Ellington filmed in New York. Among those taking part are his sister Ruth, his son
Mercer Ellington , Cootie Williams , Dizzy Gillespie , Cab Calloway , Clark Terry , Louis Bellson , Jimmy Hamilton , Mel Torme and Joe Williams.
