Alan Whicker dials Singapore 999
Tonight we hit Arab Street

A chicken squawks, a cry of death, a knife flashes, and the spouting blood religiously collected cleanses the sins of a dead woman. The Chinese have many traditions, but in the new city state of Singapore things must change. A multi-racial society is not easy to control, and in this impression of Singapore Alan Whicker observes its police force: patrolling its seas for infiltrators; discussing murder and kidnap; raiding opium dens; dealing with secret societies; steering an ancient society towards a newer way of life.
