"The most Distant Radio Galaxies"
ABSTRACT:"During the last decade the number of known radio galaxies
with measured redshifts well over 2 has grown dramatically. There are now
more than 150 radio galaxies with $z> 2$ and these galaxies are important
laboratories for studying the early Universe, because they generally emit
three components (IR-optical-UV continuum, emission lines and radio continuum)
that are all highly luminous. "During the talk recent observational
results will be discussed including: (i) UV/optical morphologies as seen
by HST, (ii) the dynamics of the absorbing and line emitting gas as observed
with the NTT and (iii) the nature of the dust as probed by SCUBA. The results
will be discussed in the context of models of galaxy formation."
