Music Planet - Burma

For this major series to accompany BBC One's 'Human Planet', Andy Kershaw and Lucy Duran go in search of music from some of the world's remotest locations...

This week, Andy visits the Thai town of Mae Sot on the border with Burma where he records musicians from one of the giant refugee camps there, meets a Burmese protest singer who has just finished a 10-year jail sentence, and drops in on the local Karen-rebel guerrilla centre disguised as a restaurant.

Producers Roger Short and James Parkin.
