A seven-part documentary series on Christopher Columbus, to mark the 500th anniversary of his landing in the Americas.
Columbus World. Born into a weaver's family in Genoa in 1451, Columbus came of age at a time of change and anxiety across Europe. The rise of Islam threatened vital trade links with China and the East
Indies, and western merchants knew they needed to find a new sea route to the Far East.
Tonight's film travels from the plantations of the Spice Islands to the bazaars of Cairo and the palaces of Venice, and sets the scene for Columbus's great adventure, which initiated the modern age of global trade.

Shake, Beat and Dub. One of the unsung heroes of 60s trumpet playing, Shake Keane is also one of the Caribbean's greatest poets. In contrast, Linton Kwesi Johnson 's dub poetry, often set to music, has its roots in the Jamaican oral tradition, but is also influenced by the early reggae DJs. In this film, Keane takes Johnson on a journey around his old London haunts. They jam with friends like Coleridge Goode , and with the Dennis Bovell Dub Band.
