In 1965 Andreas Cariolou, a diver from the ancient port of Kyrenia in Cyprus, located, by chance, a huge pile of amphoras lying on the sea-bed. These ancient wine jars were obviously the cargo of a long-lost merchant ship which had unaccountably come to grief at the end of a trading voyage round the shores of the Hellenic world. Andreas kept his precious information to himself until it could be placed in the right hands - the hands of Professor Michael Katzev, the eminent American marine archaeologist. After eight years of meticulous work by specialists from 12 countries the spectacular result of this chance encounter can be seen in the vaulted hall of Kyrenia Castle. That very merchant ship, the oldest sea-going ship in the world, now stands on display together with its cargo of amphoras, mill-stones and even almonds. almost 10,000 of them perfectly preserved.
Chronicle presents the film record of this unique and important discovery showing the years of patient and innovative work to raise this vessel from the sea, to preserve it for posterity and to interpret the mine of detailed information on seafaring in the ancient world - information which the Kyrenia ship has made available for the first time since its violent destruction at the hands of pirates around 300 BC.

In this investigative film Jack Pizzey asks whether, as taxpayers, we are getting value for money from our civil servants. One town council builds much sought-after council houses quicker than usual and saves £500,000 on the approved official plans - yet the Department of Environment blocks other councils making similar economies. In another town, computer schemes from the Department of Health and Social Security result in waste costing over £30,000. Nobody knows how much goes down the drain each year. A senior civil servant singlehandedly saves £3 million a year. Three Government Ministers want his savings applied nationwide, yet other civil servants frustrate them. A cover-up begins. Little has changed in ten years according to two Parliamentary Committees. Indeed, a former Civil Service head admits to being highly-selective about which reforms should be carried out. And, of course, the Official Secrets Act is always there to prevent embarrassing information leaking out to the public. The System seems all-powerful. So the question is - how can we make our civil servants more accountable?
