. These boys of ours are so much attracted by the glimpses they have had of European civilisation, that they look dewn upon their own nationality. They have been abroad only long enough to take on the veneer of Western education: it is a half-and-half knowledge: and it is these young men who become the discontented ones of China.'

During a war four men are imprisoned in a church: the place not only confines them but it influences their dreams. The rivalries, hatreds and loves that exist between them are revealed in their sleeping thoughts - their dreams are not an escape but a way in which they learn about themselves.

ORCHESTRA conducted by RAFAEL KUBELIK (Bavarian Radio recording)
What has been described as " the greatest archaeological find of a generation, perhaps of the century ' is the discoveiv in Svria of the city of Ebla. The name of Ebla was known to historians from inscriptions dating from the third and second millennia BC. but until quite recently no one knew where it was. However, an archaeological mission from the University of Rome led by a young professor, Paolo Matthiae , has established beyond doubt that Tell Mardikh. 30 miles south of Aleppo, is the site of ancient Ebla.
