Same here! I stumbled across the first of a two-part documentary on the fall of Singapore in 1942 on BBC2 yesterday. If it wasn't by pure chance of flicking through some channels I would have missed it. No idea how I manage to do that.
Anyway, that one is way out of the focus of this forum!

Hello, I enjoyed it a lot and found it well balanced. He did a similar programme about Lawrence of Arabia a year or two ago. He has also written an excellent book, The Places In Between , about his walk across Afghanistan in 2002. If you miss the documentary it should be on BBC Player. Best wishes, Al
