Times Past

BBC Travel

A sweet and wonderful clip from the BBC archives. A bit sad now of course - watch and you'll see what I mean.

Also at the BBC, the excellent "Newsnight" programme has just begun its own blog-cum-forum which is eliciting some intruiging response to current news. Click here.

When a ceasefire is declared in a war, convention has it that both sides will start to reduce hostilities to bring it about. Although all parties in the Lebanon have agreed (more or less) to abide by the UN accord, it is alarming to see how they are all trying to accomplish as many of their goals as possible before the dealine for stand-down arrives. "Cease" it may well be, but "peace" ?
