Echoes of Lost Tibet
Two programmes about the memories of British travellers on the 'roof of the world'.
Presented by John Snelling 2: The Forbidden Land
Life in the old Tibet was replete with colourful ritual and pageantry, and important festivals were liberally dotted through the calendar. Signs, portents and prognostications also played a large part in the lives of the Tibetans. No project or journey could be undertaken if the time was not auspicious, and even the government was influenced by such things.

Five studies in talent and perversity
4: Aleister Crowley
'Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the law.' 'Love is the law - law under will.'
Crowley, poet, mountaineer and black magician, looms in some ways larger and more sinister today than at the time of his death in a seedy Hastings boarding-house nearly 40 years ago. With help from those who knew him or have written about him - Arthur Calder-Marshall . Robin Cecil , Francis King ,
Angela Yorke - and the voice of the master himself. Frances Donnelly tries to disinter the facts from the fiction obscuring the life of a man who delighted in being styled 'the wickedest man in the world'.
