But she's still eager for the fast flowing waters of the Ouse on the voyage towards Howden and the towers of Selby Abbey. Film editor MARTIN HARRIS Producer DOUGLAS B. SMITH

The first in an occasional series in which some of the world's great mysteries are re-examined and, in some cases, solved. Tonight's programme takes as its starting point a sensational discovery made by a film researcher while viewing newsreel material for a series on the 1930s.
