Trotsky in Finland by LESTER POWELL with Derek Jacobi as Leon Trotsky
The play is based, somewhat loosely, on an episode in the life of Leon Trotsky. In October 1905 he escaped from the Russian Secret Police and went to earth in a hotel deep in the woods of South East Finland. He assumed the pseudonym of E. M. Vikentlev , a landowner reputed to be worth
93-mlllion roubles. The only other guests in the hotel were a Swedish playwright and his wife, an English actress. Directed by SHAUN MACLOUGHLIN BBC Bristol

Facing the Inevitable In November 1978, the forces opposed to the Shah of Iran were unstoppable. Even martial law had failed to stem the revolutionary tide. In Washington, the Shah's powerful
American backers were in total confusion, unable to agree on how best to save the regime. Inevitably power was handed over to a civilian government and the Shah himself was forced into exile, a broken man. In the second of two programmes. David Wheeler recalls the traumatic last moments of the Shah's rule with those who helped shape events at the time.
