First of six programmes The Mekong
In the first of this BAFTA
William Shawcross travels up the Mekong - 'the river of solidarity' according to the Vietnamese.
But he found no easy passage. Vietnamese officials were suspicious of his motives, anxious for his safety.
His journey began in Ho Chi Minh City, formerly Saigon, and took him by local ferry and gunboat - to Phnom
Penh, capital of Cambodia and on by military helicopter to the magnificent ruins of Angkor Wat, now a war zone. Journey's end, by contrast, was in the tranquil Golden
Triangle of northern Thailand. Written and presented by William Shawcross

Dirk Bogarde plays Simon Sparrow, a young medical student who, with three high-spirited companions, faces five energetic, hard-working but often hilarious years at St Swithins, under the eye of the irascible Sir Lancelot Spratt.
This famous comedy was the first of Bogarde's four appearances as Sparrow, and the one in which Spratt asks the immortal question, 'What's the bleeding time?'.
