Police Sgt. Voules:
The fall of Singapore in 1942 was the greatest defeat the British Empire ever sustained. K was also the most shameful In that twas inflicted by a despised and underestimated Japanese task force.
Many questions remain to be answered. Was it really the result of the total complacency of the British residents? Were Churchilland his Cabinet really unaware that the fortress's main guns pointed the wrong way? Why was the jungle impenetrable only to our side?
These and other questions are examined in Peter Hunt 's programme, using a good deal of unpublished material.
