Allan Little presents a programme from 2012 marking the 50th anniversary of the release of David Lean's critically acclaimed film Lawrence of Arabia by considering the legacy of its titular character as a soldier and strategist. He examines TE Lawrence's account of his desert campaign, and applies themes present in the movie to the modern-day Middle East. Includes archive recordings of people who knew and served with Lawrence, his brother's recollections and contributions from Bristol University archaeologists researching the Great Arab Revolt in Jordan.
