"Telescope takes a look at the world's precious stone industry with its focus on diamonds and other rare gems. Included in the program are interviews with Hary and Ronald Winston of Tiffany's in New York City, Lionel [Burke] and Walter [Hoving]. The episode also follows the journey of a diamond from its uncut state, to its selection by buyers, cutting and eventual setting in a piece of jewellery. The show offers a brief look into the offices of De Beer's, the world's largest supplier of diamonds."
