Asian Hero
We talk to Deep Joshi, the Indian social activist who won "Asia's equivalent" of the Nobel Prize and hear from the women whose lives he changed.

And Pat Macha, a retired teacher turned aviation archaeologist, tells us about his quest for Gertrude Tomkins Silver, the only unaccounted for member of the WASPS, the Women Airforce Service Pilots, an elite flight squadron formed by the US at the height of the Second World War.
