Tea Time in Germany
Reporters worldwide tell their stories. Steve Evans in Berlin on how, perhaps surprisingly given their history, Germans feel a real affinity with Britain. She used to be called "the most powerful woman in Mexico". Will Grant on the arrest, on embezzlement charges, of one of the country's top union leaders. Paul Henley tries to keep his cool listening to a stream of homophobic vitriol in Russia. Young people in Portugal queuing up to leave the country - Alison Roberts is in Lisbon where morale's plummeting as the jobless figures soar. And as the tenth anniversary of the US-led invasion of Iraq approaches, Kevin Connolly is there, musing on how one never quite knows how history will work out.
The producer is Tony Grant.
