From Our Own Correspondent - The dark secret of a Moscow flat
Kate Adie presents reports by BBC correspondents in Jordan, Moscow, California and Libya, where finding out simple facts proves to be almost impossible.
We hear from a loyal air force pilot who ran foul of Syrian intelligence officers and was accused of planting bombs on military planes. Syrian refugees in Jordan tell us how they fled the war zone but are now desperate to return. In Moscow, there is a new map marking the homes of Stalin's victims and our correspondent makes an uncomfortable discovery about his own flat. Corroborating facts is always a challenge for journalists but it is especially tricky in Libya, where the rumour mill is stuck on overdrive. And we learn why some Californians cough up for presidential campaigns while others can't wait for the elections to be over. Producer: Lucy Ash.
