The Lost Civilisation of Peru. Two thousand years ago a civilisation known as the Moche ruled the northern coast of Peru. They built huge pyramids, produced some of the most exquisite jewellery ever seen, and founded an empire that lasted for hundreds of years. Then, they simply vanished. Until recently, almost nothing was known about the Moche people or what became of them. Now crucial new discoveries can help us to understand the rise and sudden fall of one of the greatest civilisations of the ancient world. Producer Nick Davidson ; Editor Matthew Barrett
To slash hospital waiting lists from two years to six months was one of New Labour's manifesto pledges. And now, it seems, they've cracked it. By the end of 2005 only 12 people had to wait longer than six months for their operations. Foreign surgeons working in private hospitals had reduced NHS waiting lists dramatically - but at what cost? John Sweeney reveals how a series of bungled operations have left patients crippled, and asks if the drive to meet political targets has left people in agony.
