This news edition of the programme starts with a report that Radio Al Quds (The Holy One) is taking a far more active role. The station was first thought to be coming from Lebanon but our correspondent Joop Myers believes Southern Syria near to the Israeli border is more likely. The station is calling what they call "quizlings". The station signs on with an electronic version of the song "Turkey in the Straw". In other news, Pete Myers reports on a new use for the Crowborough transmitter site which has now been dismantled and moved to Orfordness. We look at broadcasts to Cuba by the US, by a radio station called Radio Marti. An investigation has been launched into starting a TV Marti. Is Radio Marti thinking about FM? Ginger da Silva reports on a scientific expedition going between Russia and Canada. And we ended the show with a cryptic quiz using a number station and the news that TWR's has put away its musical box. Pat Gowen in the UK has a theory about CFC's and the ozone layer.
