For over a century India was run by a commercial firm with head-quarters in the City of London - the East India Company. The Company had its own army and fought epic wars to unify the sub-continent. But in 1857 a large part of this army rose up in the great Mutiny, and the Company was destroyed.

With Barry Foster, Martin Jarvis and Ellen Dryden.
Alan is a successful young actor whose professional future is full of promise. Beth is an actress who works only occasionally, and whose marriage is rocky. They have little in common except a growing conviction of the irrelevance and uselessness of the way they spend their lives.

Written and presented by Ludovic Kennedy.

In December 1943 the most successful warship in the German Navy was sunk, off the North Cape of Norway, by the guns and torpedoes of the British Fleet. So ended a career during which the German battlecruiser had sunk an aircraft carrier, an armed merchant cruiser, two destroyers and well over 100,000 tons of merchant shipping.

Tonight Ludovic Kennedy (whose father commanded HMS Rawalpindi, the first ship sunk by the Scharnhorst) tells the story of the battlecruiser's four years of war. The programme includes participants in both navies and action film shot at the time.

"A dramatic, moving tale." Observer
