Two programmes presented by Julian Pettifer. The images of Hollywood films such as The
Deerhunter and Apocalypse Now have almost eclipsed the reality of the terrible 16-year-long war in Indo-China. But what was it really like for those who were there? From 1966 until the fall of Saigon,
Julian Pettifer reported for the BBC in Vietnam and Cambodia - until now he has not been allowed to return. From Ho Chi Minh City to the Vietcong tunnels at Cu Chi, he explores how the country has survived the post-war period.

Orchestral conductors flit from country to country, sometimes holding two or three jobs at once. In the golden age of conducting - the era of Mahler, Nikisch, Furtwangler and Toscanini - a music director worked with the same orchestra, creating a personality that could be recognised at the fall of the first downbeat.
Norman Lebrecht examines the history of "The Maestro Myth" and suggests that conducting could be in danger of decline.
