Preserving cultural treasures in Iraq on BBC Radio 3

In a few minutes, BBC Radio 3 will be presenting on the show Night Waves a special program on what has happened, if anything, as a result of British promises to repair cultural damage from the recent and still-unresolved war.

If you miss this tiny window of opportunity to tune in live try this page for a recorded version (available for the next week).

Update: Apparently looters have been focusing on sites where there are probably caches of cuneiform tablets, instead of flashier stuff. The tablets are extraordinarily important, but don't look like much and can't be read easily (to say the least!).
