Stealth - The Art Of Deception - Ever since the Greeks abandoned the battlefield at Troy, leaving behind them an innocent looking model of a horse, deception and camouflage have been a powerful weapon in the armoury of war. This remarkable and immensely entertaining programme takes us on a journey through history, from the bits of hedgerow stuck into the helmet of the sniper on the Somme, to the curving patterns of camouflage paint on the allied tanks that smashed their way through Caen, and finally to the ultimate camouflage of the stealth bombers that are invisible to the probing eye of radar. It's a great story very well told. 52 minutes
Tek Sing - China’s Titanic - The South China Sea is a fabulous hunting ground for treasure hunters. In the 18th and 19th centuries a stream of trading ships from Holland and England, and huge ocean going junks from China, criss crossed these seas, carrying countless treasures from the Orient. This unique programme tells the remarkable story of the search for the Tek Sing, a Chinese junk which sank in 1822 on the Belvidere Reef in the South China Sea with the loss of nearly 2000 lives and its valuable cargo. 50 minutes.
