On 6 March 1942 Hubertus Lauwers, a secret radio operator working for the Dutch Resistance, was captured by Major Herman Giskes of German Military Intelligence in Holland. This gave the Germans an unparalleled chance to smash the Dutch underground movement - and even, perhaps, discover the date set for the Allied invasion of Europe...

Previously shown on Boxing Day, this programme is based on Jack London's dramatic short story about a man facing the terrifying prospect of freezing to death. His only companion is a wild husky dog as he walks through the beautiful Arctic snowscape.
The year is 1898, the time of the Gold Rush, and the scene the Klondike where 'no man should travel alone when it's 50 below.' For this man, his very life hung on his ability To Build a Fire.
"In its own right a minor master-piece" (Sunday Telegraph)
"Should be repeated but not until the summer please" (Sunday Times)
