Human stories from behind the global headlines. With George Arney.

In this edition: How growing up in Ireland influenced an expert on terrorism; the women from Ethiopia who helped convict a child rapist; and the Arab-Israeli singer representing Israel at the Eurovision song contest.

Having grown up in Ireland during the troubles, Louise Richardson went on to become a professor at Harvard University in the United States, specialising in international security. In 2006 she wrote a book on the subject entitled 'What Terrorists Want'. Louise tells Outlook's George Arney why she believes America has got its response to the 9/11 attacks "catastrophically wrong". She also tells him about her latest role as Principal of the University of St Andrews in Scotland.

Also in the programme...
Angela Robson talks to the impoverished slum women from Ethiopia who have helped to convict a child rapist. And we hear from the Arab-Israeli singer who is courting controversy by representing Israel in the forthcoming Eurovision song contest.
