The Seventh Day Recollections of the Six-Day War by some who took part
The Six-Day War between Israelis and Arabs began suddenly and ended quickly. Those who had fought, mainly young people, returned dazed and shocked by the revelation of what war really is. Some became compulsive talkers, reacting for themselves and their comrades scenes of horror or triumph; others remained silent and withdrawn.
In 1967 many of these experiences were recorded at kibbutzim all over Israel. Eventu. ally the dialogues were published in book form. The recollections of these young men and women engaged in a bitter and bloody war reveal a depth of compassionate experience common to all young warriors.
The book, now published in Britain, forms the basis of tonight's programme. Because the original recordings were in Hebrew, actors play all the parts.

The Two Voyages of Donald Crowhurst
On 31 October 1968 - the deadline for entry in the Sunday Times round-the-world yacht race-Donald Crowhurst sailed out of Teignmouth in his trimaran. Nine months later it was found, intact, in the North Atlantic: Crowhurst had disappeared.
The logs and tapes he left behind reveal indisputably that he did not sail round the world but in the Atlantic only. Why? And why, if he charted a fictitious circumnavigation. did he leave sufficient proof behind to reveal the truth?
This story is about a real voyage and a false one. but it is also about two voyages in another sense: the voyage of a boat and the journey of a man's mind. Were the pressures which drove Crowhurst to his end uniquely of our own time?
TOM SALMON narrates the story with the voices of DONALD CROWHURST RODNEY HALLWORTH
