Correspondents around the world telling their stories:
Lyse Doucet has been meeting some of the thousands of people who've been forced to flee their homes in Syria because of the continuing bloodshed there.
Mark Doyle in Bamako on how the fighting in Mali has seen a new alliance being forged between the French and the Nigerian military.
The Hungarian economy may be tottering - but Petroc Trelawny has been finding out it's boom time in the flea markets and second-hand shops of Budapest.
Why are the French drinking so much less wine than they used to? John Laurenson set off for a country bistro in search of answers.
And as the fighting continues in Mali, Nick Thorpe remembers a visit there and a drive across the Sahara Desert in more peaceable times - thirty two years ago.
Producer: Tony Grant.
