The Tin Trap
'We don't expect to live longer than five years when we start work in the mines. We have to die working because we have children to educate, so they don't have to become miners themselves.'
Higon Cussi Guzman is 33 and has been a miner in Bolivia's largest tin mine for 13 years. Together with reporter Sarah Hobson he travels the tin route: from the mining of the ore at 15,000 feet in the Andes, through trading on the London Metal Exchange, to its manufacture as a vital component of tin cans and computers, and asks why Bolivian miners still receive so little reward.

An Arena special
Last September at the Royal Albert Hall Don and Phil Everly performed together for the first time in ten years. The concert was the popular music event of the year. With a fine band, including lead guitarist Albert Lee and Pete Wingfield on keyboards, the Everlys faithfully re-created the sound of their huge repertoire of hits.
'Cathy's clown', All I have to do is dream', 'When will I be loved', 'Wake up, little Susie' and the rest stirred the memories and emotions of a rapturous audience. The Everlys' harmonies are among the most special sounds in rock 'n' roll-and they sound as good as ever.
