First broadcast:

Story telling: Kerouac the runaway dog returns from his adventures in Mali and the police present their bill; our camera crew in Cairo set out to film a poster which the military authorities strongly disapprove of; violence against women is on the rise in Afghanistan as the withdrawal of western troops gathers pace; there's despondency in the world's newest nation, South Sudan, as foreign troops join the fighting there and, in a sauna deep in the Ural Mountains, our correspondent meets two hunters and asks questions about bribery, corruption and gay sex.
