Salman Rushdie 's
'The Satanic Verses'
One winter's morning two men fall from an airliner high above the Sussex coast. So begins the first novel for five years from the Booker Prize-winning author of Midnight's Children and Shame. During their miraculous escape, they acquire alarming characteristics; a set of devil's horns for one, an angel's halo for the other. Salman Rushdie reads from his work, and talks about religion and childhood, politics and writing.

In January last year the BBC decided not to transmit Zircon - one of six programmes in the Secret Society series - on the grounds that material in it might breach national security.
The film, made by journalist Duncan Campbell for BBC Scotland, claimed Parliament was being misled over plans for a new British spy satellite code-named Zircon.
In this special programme, Ludovic Kennedy introduces the film, shown in full for the first time, and reports on the wider issues it raises: was Parliament kept in the dark about Zircon and its cost? Would national security have been put at risk by its transmission at that time? And how will changes in the Official Secrets Act affect this sort of journalism?
