ForestFever. In June this year, Carlos Gomes 's lost Brazilian operatic masterpiece Guarany was triumphantly revived in Bonn. The curtain calls went on for nearly an hour. The last programme in this series takes a look at the opera, which is set deep in the Amazonian jungle. An epic story of love and heroism, II Guarany is described by its director, Werner Herzog , as "a fever drama only imaginable in the tropical rainforest". The plot contains cannibals, adventurers, conquistadors, gunshots and a spectacular explosive finale; the sets are wild and exotic. And Placido
Domingo, as the Guarany Indian hero, appears in a towering, golden-feathered head-dress. "Singers as great as Caruso and Gigli had arias from it in their repertory, "comments
Domingo. "One of its themes became the unofficial Brazilian national anthem, and yet it disappeared." Producer Martin Rosenbaum ; Director

Berla - Stalin's Creature
As Stalin's chief of secret police,
Lavrenti Beria was the most feared man in the Soviet Union, with a reputation for cruelty. Like Stalin, Beria came from a poor peasant village in Georgia, and his working life was devoted to making real Stalin's vision of a strong Soviet state. Forty years after his death, extensive new research has uncovered an even more complex and horrifying picture of a man who manipulated and murdered his way to the top. Beria's relationship with Stalin was the key to his success, and ultimately his undoing, as former colleagues and victims reveal for the first time on television in the last in the series.
