Lebanon, Serbia & Champion's League

Anu Anand | 13:07 UK time, Wednesday, 23 May 2007

Hi everyone. While Ros and the team move on to Kenya and more adventures, the programme comes to you today from humble Studio 38 in London. It doesn't beat Issa's fantastic hospitality in Uganda, but the water is nice and cold, the seats semi-comfortable and most importantly, the mics are open!


There have been alot of very disturbing stories coming from the Nahr al-Bared refugee camp in southern Lebanon. One of two residents have managed to contact the BBC and we're trying our hardest to get them on the programme today. It's a tall order, as their main concern is obviously to get to safety. But we hope to hear from at least one or two people who've left the camp to find out what life inside is like inside and what they've witnessed over the past few days. Would you like to speak to them? Get in touch via email or the blog and we'll do our best to get you on air.

After the fall of Slobodan Milosevic, Zoran Djindjic was meant to bring stability to Serbia. But the former Prime Minister was gunned down on 12 March 2003 as he got out of his official car in Belgrade.

At the time, a state of emergency was declared and more than 10,000 people were arrested in a massive police operation. Half a million people attended Mr Djindjic's funeral in a huge outpouring of national grief.

Now, 12 men have been found guilty and sentenced. All the defendants, who include members of the secret police and alleged mafia kingpins, had denied the charges. And during the trial, one protected witness and another eyewitness were murdered, while one judge resigned and another received death threats.

So do these verdicts mean Serbian politics have been cleaned up?

We'll also talk to Rev James Macfarlane who's been minister to Alan Johnston and his family for years. He has been appealing directly to Alan's captors for his release, and talking about Alan's abduction at the General Assembly of the Church of Scotland.

And finally, the Champion's League final...where will you be? If you're a fan, but you're millions of miles from Athens, get in touch now. We'll put you on air to speak to those lucky enough to be there...!

Speak to you soon.
Ciao for now,
