OBJs Guide to the Middle East

Listen in pop-out player

Can anyone really claim to understand what is going on in the Middle East - who supports who and why? Owen Bennett Jones takes a sideways look at the shifting allegiances, the foreign policy zigzags, the outrageous hypocrisies, and the bizarre contradictions of the Middle East. Assisting him in what promises to be a somewhat anarchic guide are former Middle East ambassador Sir Sherard Cowper-Coles, comedian Dom Joly and Baroness Haleh Afshar. Owen promises that though his listeners may be more confused than enlightened by the end of the half hour, it won't be for lack of trying by him and his guests!
