On 1 January this year, Britain and other countries of the European Community extended their fishing limits to 200 miles. Not so long ago, British trawlers were involved in a cod war with Iceland over their fishing limits, and now we've extended ours without full world agreement. But who really rules these new British waves? What are the implications for our fishermen, who are seeking a better deal from the EEC? And do we have the naval and air force resources to police these new waters - traditionally fished by the Russians - adequately? Written and presented by Jack Regan

In 1494 Pope Alexander VI divided the world between France and Spain. Africa, India and the East Indies were declared the exclusive property of Portugal. However, by the late 1500s Holland, England and then France began to make inroads on the Portuguese monopoly. In 1601 Francois Pyrard embarked on one of the first French boats to join in the eastern adventure. On his return he wrote a description of the voyage, its triumphs and tribulations, the people he met, the cities he saw.
