In March 1932, the baby son of American aviator Charles Lindbergh was kidnapped from his home near Hopewell, New Jersey. Four years later a German immigrant carpenter, Bruno Richard
Hauptmann, was convicted of the murder of the baby and died in the electric chair.
At the time and ever since, doubts have existed about the guilt of Hauptmann. Indeed in 1982, with new evidence, his 83-year-old widow reopened the case and sued the State of New Jersey for the wrongful execution of her husband.
Ludovic Kennedy looks at the evidence only recently made public and shows that doubts are now more than ever justified.

Belsen, May 1945
In the spring of 1945, at a couple of days' notice, 98 medical students were taken from the sheltered world of their teaching hospitals and flown to Belsen, to give what help they could to the thousands of starving and disease-ridden inmates.
In the weeks that followed, these volunteers witnessed scenes of nightmare and horror as they struggled to care for people who were physically beyond saving or had lost all will to live.
On the 40th anniversary of their visit, and after a lifetime in medicine, some of these men look back and reflect on the meaning of that experience.
