Owen Bennett-Jones is joined by some of the BBC's top correspondents as they give their predictions about what will shape our world next year.

Will the global economy recover? How will the Arab Spring play out across the Middle East - and how will the conflict in Syria be resolved? Will Burma and North Korea continue to come out of the cold? And will a re-elected Barack Obama play a more assertive role in global affairs?

Join Owen and his guests as they gaze into their crystal balls - and he rates their predictions from last year's look ahead.

Producer: Linda Pressly.
