A fabled substance first brought to Europe by Marco Polo ... it looks like used coffee grounds, and smells like old stables. Yet men will kill for it, for it is three times more valuable than gold.
For more than 3,000 years musk has been prized in medicine, in perfumery, and as an aphrodisiac. It comes from a shy and solitary deer found in the remoter part of the Himalayas; its musk sac is its death warrant.
Filmed in eight countries around the world, this is the story of how, despite international agreements to protect this endangered species, a shady and often criminal trade continues to flourish - for pride and for potency.
Producer RICHARD TAYLOR

Six films of early exploration introduced from the Royal
Geographical Society by the pioneer Antarctic explorer Duncan Carse.
1: Everest - The First Attempt (1922)
'Mount Everest is great and beautiful. Marvellously built; majestic; terrible.'
So wrote one of the first climbers to stand beneath the peak of the highest mountain in the world. Yet these early pioneers were to get within 1,700 feet of the summit: bivouac through a blizzard; get frostbite and windburn; and at the end of their tribulations, return with a classic film of early mountaineering.

Welsh Rugby Union has seemingly been blessed with a succession of brilliant 'fly halves'. Cliff Morgan, who lit up the international stage in the early 50s, was for many the greatest of them all. Away from rugby Cliff became a journalist, broadcaster and broadcasting executive. He edited This
Week for Rediffusion TV and Grandstand for the BBC. But it is his voice which radio listeners welcome into their homes, presenting programmes as diverse as river journeys, concerts and Sport on 4. Written and presented by BARRY DA VIES

I Want to Live
In April 1987 Kate Matthews was told that she probably had only 12 weeks to live.
'I'm just an awkward bugger - I've never done what people tell me to do, and to lie down and die is something I wouldn't do either.'
Mother of two teenagers, witty, attractive and full of drive, Kate simply isn't prepared to opt out. She revels in shopping sprees, laughs over malicious gossip and flies in a helicopter. With her two children, relationships are delicate, sometimes emotional. The future? 'I'm going to live until I die,' says Kate firmly. Photography NIGEL MEAKIN Film editor TARIQ ANWAR
