    Icarus-like, Rembrandt flew ever higher towards the sun - the most successful artist in the richest city on earth, 17th-century Amsterdam. He lived like a prince and he loved living like a prince. But when his fall came - deep into bankruptcy and scandal, poverty and unfashionability - far from destroying him, it took him to new creative heights and a sense of humanity and the human condition that speaks more directly to us today than Rembrandt in his heyday. Simon Schama celebrates the masterpieces of the last years to coincide with the National Gallery's major exhibition on late Rembrandt.

Copenhagen ends in failure, and evidence emerges of Australia's' complicity in silencing Pacific nations. Back in Sydney Maria receives troubling news. Via the crackly CB radio link to her home island she finds out that her beloved father is very ill. She must return home immediately. Meanwhile in Kiribati storm tides are sweeping into villages and fragile sea walls are crumbling. The urbane President Anote Tong, acutely aware of these problems, says his.
