Just found this on Google video, http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid ... 226590901#
It's the Horizon programme from 2002 about the mosaics found at Zeugma, Turkey and the work to save as many as possible before the valley was flooded as part of the Euphrates dam project.
There are some beautiful pieces there and apparently there is still some digging going on in the areas that haven't been flooded. It was this programme that I was watching that started everything off for me :D
