Read by Neville Phillips
' He enjoyed the solitude, walking through the deserted city with pieces of windblown newspapers his only companions. He enjoyed the feeling of power, like being the king of a lost civilisation, stalking regally through his kingdom with the symbols of his right to rule in hand - orb and sceptre - disguised as bucket and brushes.

Torture is still widely used as a weapon of political control. Hundreds of victims of political torture have been examined by a team of Amnesty International doctors based in Copenhagen. Their dossiers contain a grisly vocabulary of torture techniques developed in countries such as Chile and Argentina - ' picana (electric shock), telefono ' (beating the ears), and ' submarino ' (partial drowning).
Eric Robson is the first reporter to be allowed access to these files and to meet the victims.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a
historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any
given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the
understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time
- not those of today.
To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and
50s, you can navigate by issue.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
