The treasure trail 'is the murder of man's history and it's a tragedy.'
History is murdered in the search for buried treasure, not just gold and silver, but fractured pots and broken statues, the highly saleable relics of past civilisations. Meet curators, smugglers, dealers and indignant archaeologists anxious to preserve intact the evidence of the past.
Controversy continued with the announcement by the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, of the million dollar purchase of the Euphronios Vase - the so-called 'hot pot'. The trail leads from New York to the Etruscan hills in Italy, to meet tomb robbers, policemen and a man who fakes pots for a living. Reporter John Percival

The giant panda is one of the world's best-loved creatures, but also one of the most threatened. There could be as few as 1,000 left in the wild, mist-covered mountain forests of China.
In this Newsround special John Craven reports from behind the 'bamboo curtain' on a unique joint project between the World Wildlife Fund and the Chinese government to save this rare animal from extinction. He visits Wolong breeding and research centre in the heart of the panda's homeland in this special programme - the first of its kind by a television team from the West.

Clive Jermain 's play
The Best Years of Your Life was first shown in May 1986 to great critical and popular acclaim, and repeated last night on BBC2.
Adrian Shergold , the play's director, interviewed Clive three times last year; first during the making of the play, then just after the play was shown, and finally last December - the end of an extraordinary year for a young man living with a threatening and incurable illness.
With remarkable frankness, Clive talked of the play and its impact, but also about himself, his life and cancer. 'If by anything I say or convey I can help somebody understand that people with terminal illnesses aren't contagious ... if it makes cancer easier to accept, then it will have been worthwhile.'
