Jonathan Head, who has been on the frontline in Sirte, in Libya, ponders what makes men - many without military training - carry on fighting and taking risks when they are not compelled to, and it brings thoughts of his grandfather. Sue Lloyd Roberts gives us an insight into life trapped in one's own flat with young children, in the city of Homs, in Syria, as the revolution continues outside. Natalia Antelava explores the distressing story of child abuse in the United States, which is alleged to have the worst child abuse rates in the industrialised world. Celeste Hicks is in Tunisia, where the Arab Spring began, as they try to get to grips with the strange concept of voting. And Jonathan Barker is in Aceh, in northern Sumatra, in Indonesia with big orange primates, the Orang Utans who are benefitting from the Asian Tsunami.
