The Rev Hector Matthews:
On 9 September news cameraman Neil Davis was killed filming the attempted coup in Thailand. This programme, taken from a longer film by David Bradbury and shown as a tribute to Davis's skill and courage, includes the close-range film he shot in Vietnam that made him a legend among newsmen and brought the horrors of war home - literally - to millions of people. Davis talks about working under fire and his belief that 'it's the cameraman's job to bring the truth to the people. No matter what happens.'

The Little Drummer Boy
The first of two programmes oy Leonard Bernstein to celebrate the birth 125 years ago of the composer Gustav Mahler and which coincide with the festival currently running in London, 'Mahler,
Vienna and the 20th Century'. Tonight's musical essay is a provocative examination of the roots of Mahler's inspiration. It highlights two distinct but interrelated themes: the influence of Mahler's Jewish birth and the inspiration he drew, for both songs and symphonies, from the vivid collection of German folk poetry entitled Das Knaben Wunderhom
(The Youth's Magic Horn). Musical examples are from the nine Mahler Symphonies, The Song of the Earth and the Wunderhorn cycle.
