The Malaya emergency was not the last time that Malaysia with the support of the British Commonwealth would face left wing guerrillas, between 1962 and 1966 they would be a war in North Borneo but this time the guerrillas would have the support of the Army of the pro Soviet Government of Indonesia.  This little remembered war would have a major impact on South East Asia and swing the balance of favour in the cold War there in favour of the West.  Over four episodes, I will deal with this war and the dramatic effect it had in Indonesia.  Then in the final episode in this the third season of when the Cold War got Hot, I will deal with the Communist revolts in the Philippines and in Burma, the revolt in Burma would not end for 40 years.

The new episodes should appear in March,
