The Bohemian capital is in decay, with its architectural wonders under threat. And yet, ironically, it is also a boom city besieged by developers, multinationals and tourists.
This documentary coincides with the launch of the Prague Heritage Fund and asks how
Prague can be modernised and yet retain its rich architectural history. With contributions from HRH the Prince of Wales, President Vaclav Havel and film director Milos Forman , the film visits many examples of Prague's rich heritage and asks whether the city should be protected from the worst excesses of 20th-century development. Presented by John Tusa.

The ebullient American conductor Michael Tilson
Thomas presents this musical journey back to the Vienna of 1800 where the young Beethoven is writing a new symphony on a heroic theme. With the help of the London Symphony Orchestra and a grand piano, Tilson Thomas demonstrates how the Eroica Symphony became a sort of musical journal for its composer, and manages to answer that eternal question: what does music mean?
Followed by a performance of the Eroica Symphony. Director John Michael Phillips
