A second chance to see this Emmy award-winning documentary.
Three days after the late
President Marcos had been ousted from power, the new Philippines government set up a special commission to trace millions of dollars that he and his wife Imelda were thought to have spirited out of the country.
Left behind in the presidential palace were documents pointing to a fortune hidden in offshore companies and secret Swiss bank accounts.
Tonight's programme follows the complex trail of that fortune around the world. Private videotapes, shot by the Marcos family, reveal the lavish lifestyle which belied his official income of $5,600 a year.
The director William Cran confronted the Marcoses who were living in their place of exile in Hawaii, with the evidence.

Ever since Floyd read
Hemingway's The Old Man and the Sea, he has wanted to fish in the same waters as his idol. Thanks to this modest yet elegant BBC mini-break, he hires a small fishing boat to catch grouper, a spirited fighter and quite delicious - especially served with a lime sauce. 'A man can go mad stuck out here, under a merciless sun,' says our intrepid gastronaut, 'but it hasn't affected me, which is just as well with all these damned hedgehogs around.'

Eight country-by-country accounts of the origins of the Second World War written and narrated by Charles Wheeler.
When war broke out in 1939, millions of Americans were determined to stay out of another European conflict. America was isolationist.
But Britain's near defeat in the war brought about a change of opinion. As debate raged between the interventionists, and isolationists, President
Roosevelt steered his country towards war.
By 1941, and the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, America was ready to enter the world stage once again.
